  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

Ebenefit Does Not Show Second C&p Exam

Question

ebenefit shows I had a c&p exam for hearing loss, but it does not show I had a c&p exam for major depression and bilateral knee disability. It also does not show that after I filed my NOD, I had two more c&p exams. Is this information just left out? Under appeal which It states no informaition. this appeal was filed 2008 and has no movement since then. So ebenefit is just what the VA decides to put on it. The VBA personnel at the VA hospital told me they have nothing to do with ebenefit. Naturally I could only get limited information from them and the IRIS system gives only limited information and the 1800 number is hit and miss. So my question is how do actually find out the status of anything if all the communication systems are only giving out limited information. Under the appeal tab on my prior appeals it give the status, the date of NOD, and although the appeal was resolved at the regional office at least I knew where I stood. This last appeal has been ongoing since 2008 and I can't seem to get but limited information on the status. Also do ebenefit suppose to show that I have been asking for a DRO regional office hearing since 2009 without any success. The VBA personnel at the hospital states they can not see a hearing request, like I said the 1800 number is hit and miss and the IRIS response is only going to give you limited and evasie information. So is ebenefit any different if it only going to give the same limited information?

You have to remember, it's all manually entered by VARO staff. I have items that have been sent, yet nothing new showing any later than 2010.

It is so behind if it even gets posted at all JMHO and what I have observed. Did you look under C&P exams and Appeal areas too? Sometimes one could find it in another area or else not. The people who are SUPPOSED to imput work rather slowly to incert any if at all...

eBenefit site hasn't helped much with me either. i've always, so far, had to call/write/email/ RO or IRIS to request them to update my eBenefits page as its always way out of date. i gave up relying on eBenefits except for some things like ddepost or a letter print out.

i've sent in and taken medical docs (from outside VA) to be scanned into their system and it takes them months/years and numerous attempts to get them to do so.

considering the amount of money the VA is being billed to develop the ebenefits site i doubt seriously it will help the veteran in the realm of claims. we're up against a crew of national legal beagles whose sole purpose is to roadblock and trip up the veteran.

imho

    • My claim went back to gathering of evidence after I had my second c&p exam for tbi initial. My vso the Dav said it was a dbq to differentiate the symptoms of tbi and PTSD as far as social and occupational impairment. I recieved at least as likely as not on all exams, PTSD, both tbi exams. Has anyone experienced this or know what it means? Is this a good sign my claim will be granted ? Thank you.

    • Do I have to quit my job?
      Hello everyone. See Below for what I received from VA

       

      A little about me currently. I have a job that is very low stress (work nights no people no stress) very secure because I work in a mountain so im surrounded by granite. I work on computers so it engages my mind and keeps me as active as possible and is my passion. So my question is do I have to quit my job? Thanks!

    • Progress Notes on C&P Exam
      Hey guys, 

           I don't know if I'm in the right place but i was needing some clarification. After fighting with the military for six years, the C&P examiner stated that my condition precludes me from any physical occupation. 

      I developed asthma back in 2012, while in service. Is that typical wording for pretty much everyone? I guess my English isn't that great and i would like someone to please explain to me what that entails? The examiner 

      also stated that there is a 50% chance or greater that my injury was incurred in the line of duty, does that mean that they service connected me? 

       

      thank you for responding.

    • I have a 8 year appeal that was granted in May 2019. Entitlement to service connection for acquired psychiatric disorder, to include  post traumatic stress disorders and depression, is granted.

      I live in Missouri, but it looks like the San Diego RO has been tasked with assigning the rating. I am already SC for 10,10,and 10 for shin splints and tinnitus which adds up to 30%. I was trying to determine what would my rating be and timeframe backpay would be paid.

      My symptoms include : nonetheless the examiner opined that is not to say that his issues with pain and tinnitus have not exacerbated mental health symptoms. In this regard the examiner opined that the veterans chronic pain and tinnitus contribute to several depressive symptoms, including depressed mood, sleep impairment, irritability, diminished concentration and interest in activities, relationship problems, and outburst of anger.

      As such the examiner concluded both his tinnitus and issues with chronic pain (not simply limited to shin splints) Are judged to have aggravated and contributed to multiple mental health symptoms. Therefore the examiner concluded that “it is at least as likely as not” that the diagnosis of bilateral shinsplints and tinnitus has  aggravated depressive and overlapping PTSD symptoms beyond their natural course. My diagnosis includes Anxiety disorders too. 

      My grant is secondary to existing disabilities.

      There is a Remand for Inextricably intertwined with the grant of service connection for an acquired psychiatric disorder, granted in the boards decision herein, because it may be affected by the assignment of the disability rating and effective date for the grant of service connection. Once the disability rating and affective date for the grant of service connection for an acquired psychiatric disorder has been assigned, and after completing any other development deem necessary, readjudicate the claim of entitlement to TDIU are you in light of all pertinent Evidence  and legal authority.

      I am not sure but I hope my rating and backpay would be issued before they decide in another possible year for TDIU?

      I am also one of the ones who constantly check Benny’s for a rate change or any updates, but it is the same since May 23rd 2019. Has anyone received a deposit before benny’s Update. Since the new process has been implemented?
