  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Tracking A Claim

Question

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to track a claim? I submitted my claim two weeks ago. I know it is a lengthy process from all I've read, but is there anyway to check on status? I've also read I should be getting a letter, but there was no indication from the person at the VA as to when I would get it.

Thanks for the help!

You can use the IRIS system via the VA, or you can call the VARO every month or so to check up. Really, it is a black hole and you must wait. Just make sure you can document that you filed the claim and evidence.

Fleet,

Welcome to Hadit.

Is this a question regarding an Original Claim (filed on a 21-526 form) ?

How long have you been separated from active duty ?

This is a good site to get access to. It gives you visibility on your claims and its status. Just follow the instructions and register. Make sure you get the premium account level 2 access in order to get the full benefits of the site. Without it you will not be able to see you claim status. https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits-port...ger/eb/veterans

Your claim could still be in the VARO mail room.

In about 3 weeks or maybe within 3 months -you will receive a VCAA letter telling you exactly what evidence you will need for your claim.

There will be a response form enclosed.

I have had luck with the Phoenix DAV.

This office has a good process and has helped me out immeasurably.

Once they had my signed permission to act as my sole agent with the VA I was able to give them copies of all documentation and forms for forwarding to the VARO directly upstairs.

This ensured that my copies had copies at the DAV and all were a backup to all documents the VARO was supposed to have.

The DAV would also keep me advised of the progress of the file and whether the VARO needed anything else.

This was a good experience relative to previous attempts at crossing the wilderness.

I haven't use the link in an earlier post except to register.

    • 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.
