Appeal

Question

Today I looked in ebenefit for a updade on my claim. It stated under claim status the appeal I started in 2009 had a decision and a notification letter has been sent. My Congressman did an inquiry last month about issues I had with the Waco, Tx Regional office about the denial of my claim for an increase for knees disability because they refused to answer my questions about range of motion and the doctor opinion. Like everything else with the VA, ebenefit only give out limited information. The VA did not put any dates on when this notification was sent out. My ebenefit account had not been updated since 2008 until this month after the congressional inquiry. My question is since this was an appeal, do it means the benefits sought has been granted or what? I have no way of knowing when the notification letter was sent or if this another way just by time because of the congressional inquiry. Any suggestion, comments or thoughts.

since this was an appeal, do it means the benefits sought has been granted or what? It means that a decision on your appeal has been made, either upholding the earlier denial or granting the issue(s) on appeal.

If you have more than one issue your claims may be granted or denied in whole or in part. Your claim may be remanded in whole or in part. You have to wait for the written decision and read it carefully for the conclusions and how they got there. Even if you are denied they give you the tips and hints about how to win in the future.

Check download letters on eBenefits and the benefit letter and see if anything is there. It is up and running again as of today.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
