Frustrating

Question

I can't understand why the information on ebenefits in reference to my claim/appeal is not updated periodically. It gets frustrating reading about how much information is available to others while mine sits dormant. The last entry was in April of 2008. VA just says they are backlogged and get many complaints in reference to that. Really? How can they go almost 5 years without updating it? LOL.. I can't help but laugh becausing getting mad doesn't help anymore. Sorry, rant over...smile.png

Tony,

Don't worry, the paperless claim processing they are implementing is going to fix it all by 2015!!

They can't even get eBenefits to display information correctly, cant get RO's to input vets data in consistantly and it takes them 5 months to put a request for a copy of an online form (won't print out from eBenefits) in the system as a claim. Furthermore, they say it will take 10 to 14 months to send me a copy. They could have printed the copy, hand addressed the envelope and dropped it into the mail slot in less time than it took to set it up as a claim in eBenefits.

Are you on an Appeal or initial claim?

It's an appeal on a claim filed in 2004. I talked to them the other day and was told it it's in the raters hand and shouldn't be to much longer...lol...year right.

The RO does the updates and, depending on your RO, it may not be timely....

I feel your pain, I stop going to ebenefits. Mine is so mired down and just sitting there. I did what they asked, and sent in all they asked for, still nothing will it ever change? Total waste on my time going there

    • 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.
