Change In Verification Letter On Ebenefits



**** AB4 Letter

I noticed the percentage went away as noted in the previous topic. However, looking at my verification letter, it use to read that i was more than 30% service-connected (I'm 80% combined). Now the letter reads I'm at least 10% service connected but not more than 30%. I have a pending claim for tdiu with 70% major depression, 10% Lknee, 10% Rknee, and 10% sinusitus. Can anyone give me a clue as to what could be going on? On ebenefits, my claim had progressed to "pending desicion approval" and today it is back at "review of evidence".

I know the claim can go back and forth in status, but I'm concerned that the only document showing my percentage on ebenefits states that I'm not more than 30%. My benefit letter still shows the pay amount = to 80% minus the actual percentage listing as everyone else.



I looked at the letter again, it is the civil service preference letter (AB4)

Did you happen so save an old copy of a previous letter? For civil service purposes, anything over 30% is mute. The highest you can get is 30% (or more) Compensable as far as preference goes. I'd still send an IRIS in to see what happened.

Yes, I have an old copy. However, I checked again today and it was back to normal stating that I'm more than 30%. I'm guessing it was just a glitch in the system with all the recent updates to ebenefits. Thanks for your advice but I'm glad it took care of itself without me needing to call.

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
