  1. Hey all, I have an upcoming BVA hearing in April and I am getting anxious. Despite the strong evidence that I have in my service medical records, VA records, and IME from a board-certified specialist, I feel like I’m still going to be denied service-connection. How did you all get over this feeling? I am an emotional wreck right now, far worse than I was waiting three years ago. Plus, my attorney is going to request waiving the hearing and submitting a written argument. I have a conference call with my attorney in two weeks to go over the written argument, but yet I am still anxious
  2. At the end of June, I noticed a claim had been opened for my SC’d PTSD, currently rated at 70%. Little background, I was rated at 70% for Major Depression back in 2010. I filed for TDIU and it was granted later that year. The VA re-examined the Major Depression in 2015. They changed my diagnosis to PTSD with Major Depression, but continued the 70% rating. IU remained intact. Fast forward to present day, the VA decided to reevaluate the PTSD (just shy of 5 years since my last C&P). I attended an exam, it went well. Doc was nice and made me feel comfortable, which was a r
  3. Good afternoon. I am waiting on my supplemental claim results from the VA. Nothing has updated in e-Benefits and on va.gov it the status shows that the VA has made a decision (under the status tab) and under the issues tab it says "currently on review - compensation issue". Has anyone seen this and know what it means? Many thanks! Heather
  4. Welp, Just found out they closed my claim. Surprise surprise, nothing changed EXCEPT they reduced my GERD from 60% down to 10%! WHY and What the?! So apparently that random C&P without my knowledge played a significant part. So my questions are the following: 1. Should I reopen my claims or file an appeal? 2. How do I go about getting ALL of my C&P claim notes, especially whatever was said from this C&P without my knowledge? 3. Should I even attempt to ask for the much qualified for increase on other areas of my body, that have gotten worse, or fight this
  5. I went online to EBenefits this morning to see if nothing changed after my C&P last month. It said claim closed and Decision letter sent. After checking around I found a 70% rating for PTSD and MDD and a 3/15/17 effective date which was when I filed my claim. I hadn't set up banking info yet so I did that. Some questions: 1. Will they mail a retro pay check since I didn't have banking set earlier? 2. I know I need to wait for the letter but is EBenefits usually accurate with the rating? 3. Is there a certain day of the month VA sends payments (Like social security is a
  6. I just got a letter from the DAV that states that the letter is not official notification but I will get official notifaction following "completion of necessary administrative procedures". And the VA reserves the right to modify prior to official notification. OK I filed an appeal about 4 years ago and haven't heard a word. No change in status on ebenefits. The letter states that the DAV has reviewed the latest VA decision concerning your claim for benefits. The VA has taken the following action(s). DECISION 1. Service connection for xxxxxx to include xxx and xxx.is granted in t
  7. so my claim was submitted on 12/12/2016. I submitted for bipolar/depression (reopen) and tinnitus (new). I sent it in as an FDC with all my evidence. I checked ebenefits on 12/21/2016 and the status is already showing preparation for decision. Is this normal? I haven't even gone to a c&p exam, I haven't recieved any correspondences or anything. For the bipolar depression it is a reopen because when i first filed in 2011, I missed my appointment. After I missed my appointment, the VA sent me papers (back in 2011) saying that they see that i was treated for depressio
  8. Two months and two days from the date I filed a Motion to Advance my husband's appeal Decision was made in his favor at the BVA. It was fairly short and did not contain any "history making" comments. It also did not give an effective date. Although an attorney at the BVA said it was P&T all it actually says is that he was granted TDIU. It was a wonderful Christmas Blessing but it would be nice to see a little greenbacks soon.
  9. I began a claim in August 2013, after going to the VAMC for the past 12 years from time to time for what they now call "anxiety and depression". I initially went to the VARO and they initiated a claim for "anxiety due to physical assault in basic training" and "back condition". Only on my second visit to the VARO did they provide me with Form 21-0781 for determining PTSD. The VAMC according to my medical records have never used the term "PTSD" in my file as of yet. I have since gone to the DAV for representation, thanks in part to the great information on this website. I gave them my budd
  10. Well, just about at the point where I was about to let go and fall into another one of my deep depressions and have another manic episode or so it would've seemed, I went online and signed onto ePeggy and, fully expecting to see the same thing I've seen for almost two years ("gathering evidence", a.k.a. "gathering dust") I saw something completely different: the status was "Preparation For Decision" and in my letter generator the letter available for me to print out and prove to people how much disability percentage and payment I receive monthly was not available online. This has peaked my cu
  11. SOOOOOO.......I pretty much gave up on checking my ebenefits account for any movement on my claim status. Actually I called the 800 number for the VA trying to get some info on what was going on with my GI bill since they decided to move it from one office to another and didin't "know where it was" haha. Anyway, so I go through and to my surprise 2 things happened I never expected: They not only found my Education file but they put a rush on it and my back pay will be coming through next week, ANNNDD there was a note attached to my medical claim saying something along the lines of should be
  12. LETS TRY THIS AGAIN! lesson learned click preview post not post new topic, someone should really change that. My question regarding the VA Claims link on the homepage has to do with the post from the vet/nurse/woman who works processing the claims. in that post she says that excessive information and adding new claims to the origial claim before its finished can delay the precess. but how about a new claim that is added to your claim AS its starting that isn't previously documented in your medical record but IS documented by the doctor the VA set you up with in the first place? I
