Benefit Summary Letter

Rate this question



Greetings all:

Well I was on eBennies today checking my appointments (to see if any stealth C&P's have been requested) and decided to look over on the documents section and found a new letter a "summary of Benefits", so I opened it up and let it print all of the fields (apparently you are allowed to customize what data is shown). I actually have a letter that states my % along with my monthly award. It even discusses that I am not permanent and total because I have a review scheduled for October 1, 2013. it also goes on to state I am not permanent and total because I have a future scheduled reduction on October 1, 2013. It also goes on to state I am service connected for loss of use of a limb, or I am totally blind in or missing at least one eye (2, 2, 2 all accounted for WTF?).

Now I was told by the appeals section at Detroit they were working my file in August (didn't say what year). What do you folks think, is this 10/1/2013 date a default on implementation to the beginning of the next fiscal year? I do not have a convalescence rating for hospitalization. They can't reduce without an exam can they? How could they have a reduction scheduled for October 1, 2013 if I have not received any notice (I believe they have to give 60 days notice by CFR/M21-1MR).

This has me a little un-nerved because I get the distinct impression my RO doesn't like me. Maybe this proposed reduction isn't real since the question on loss of limb or sight is incorrect also.

Opinions Ideas ????

I checked out Ebenefits and your right that is a new letter format, but when I printed out mine, nothing about P&T or the reasons why I'm disabled, it also does not mention anything about the proposed reduction notice I received in July. Did they send a Proposed Reduction letter to you, that should be done before any reductions are implemented, so you have a chance to fight their "plan"
