Update From E-Benne

Question

I happened to check E-benefits this morning and under "What we have not received from you" was this.

Wondering if all this will cause the claim to be denied. We've been waiting since 10/ 2010.

Those are the " tracked items" the VA uses, and the evidence received. With all the work on Ebene they must have patched into the wrong source code.

Not to be too personal, but if your 100% is your claim for P&T, or going for extra schedular something.

Well, my ebennies horror story is this: Claim submitted 8/2011 and increase granted 5/2012, with TDIU deferred. All docs requested have been received by VA and noted on ebennies. On 9/23/12 when the big 'upgrade' happened, the claim went to Prep for Notification. 4-weeks later it was still at Prep for Notification. I finally called 800# to be told that the Prep for Notification was in reference to the increase back in May. Then, on 11/5 looking at ebennies, the claim has gone back to Review of Evidence (noting Claim RESTART date, wtf). Concurrently, I received an IRIS message stating that the TDIU deferment is now back to Review of Evidence, there doesn't appear to be anything outstanding, they will notify me if they need anything, and it is estimated that my RO takes about 11-months on a claim, depending on blah, blah, blah.

So, here is what I have extrapolated from this whole deal, 5/2012 they granted an increase and decided to defer TDIU. For 6-months now, the TDIU has just been sitting in some rat hole with absolutely no attention, not even a 'we are working on your claim sorry for the delay' letter. Now that I've made an IRIS inquiry, this claim has gone back to the bottom of the pile, however, they've acknowledged that they don't need any further information, (they have all they need to make a decision) but that particular process can now take ANOTHER 11 months (estimated of course), for review only. The VA sucks, not just for my veteran, but for every veteran that volunteers to risk (some lost) their life for this great country of ours.

Butch,

my husband's 100%p&t is for IHD, CAD. The other claims are ptsd & hearing which haven't been settled as of yet.

Thanks for your service,

About a month ago I was checking E-bennies to see if there was movement on my claim.While I was there I checked my AB8 letter.I almost had a heart attack, as it showed me at 10% and at the time I was rated at 70% and gettibg a deposit every month for the 70% amount. They also showed that they needed more evidence from me for my claims but I had not been contacted by the Waco RO. 3 days later they closed my claims and my ab8 showed me at 90%.I recieved the official letter in about another 3 days and had been awarded my claims pushing me up to 90%.....So take what E-bennies shows with a grain of salt as it is usually not correct....................................grid

    • 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.
