    employment 2.jpeg

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Success Claims Notifications

Question

Not sure which topic to ask this question on. I put it here because the main part of my claim is for UI. Is there any months that stand out in seeing more success stories than others? As I talk with the 1-800 number lately, the reps seem to be relating to me that my claim is nearing decision more than usual. Claim is over 14 months old. No real concrete statement from them but I am Reading more into what they don't say I guess. They say they have everything in requested and it should not be much longer. I was advised not to add any other claim at this time because it might slow the other down the UI.

I am reading tea leaves, and the entrails of dead animals, but I think November-December is a good time. I don't know if there are any statistics on this.

Thats cool, I could Handle some good news from the VA this month. But being my usual pessimistic self, I wont hold my breath. Usually the stress meter is real high around the holidays and I myself would find it hard to phathom anybody from VARO, sending me a yuletide gift. ;) Come on VARO, prove me wrong, I double dare you.

Personally I think that a New fiscal year brings an increase to the numbers of awarded claims. That is when the new budgets take effect.

October, November

Spend it while u got it, couldn't agree more with u. That might be why there has been seen such a delay on retro payments in the last few months.

I didn't know there was a delay on retro right now. But my claim has been with the rater (in hands) for 2 weeks now and I feel I will see something real soon, what ever it may be.

And as far as seeing granting claims it looks as though towards the backside of the year is good for granting more claims and the beginning of the year is less but that is just my observation over the last 2 years. Even better for appeals...

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
