Claim Closed Today But No Change On Benefit Verification (Ab8)

Question

Recent claim went from Pending Decision Approval to Complete but no change on my Benefit Verification (AB8). Does this mean denial?

not necessarily.

go to Apply for Benefits >> Compensation Benefits and go thru the screens like you are starting a new claim. About halfway thru you will see all of your conditions with thier percentages. ANy that say Not-Sevice connected were denied. If they have 0% then they were awarded with a 0% rating.

Make sure you delete the application for benefits at the end.

I tried that and it did show as you stated but it shows not service connected as they denied it. Is there a chance they have not updated it or does that mean denial? Does a denial go through all the steps like Pending Decision Approval etc.?

All you can really do is keep waiting for the decision,

if you have a vso, I'd give them a call in a week or so

to see if they can give you a heads up.

Yes but I tried what rdawg said to do "go to Apply for Benefits >> Compensation Benefits and go thru the screens like you are starting a new claim. About halfway thru you will see all of your conditions with thier percentages. ANy that say Not-Sevice connected were denied. If they have 0% then they were awarded with a 0% rating."

It showed all of my current disabilities and ratings and said not service connected for the two claims that were just finished but from my past experience most denials do not go through all the steps, they are cut short i.e. Pending Decision Approval etc.. Just makes me mad because I do not see how they could deny it.

Benefits Explorer is the same as well and remains at 60% but says yes to Permanent & Total Disability. Don't know what this means but would have to assume denial as my Benefit Verification (AB8) remains the same as well as Benefits Explorer and the fact that I did what rdawg said to do and it showed not service connected.
