  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading

Claim Updated Today

Question

Hello,

My claim info was updated today on the ebenefits website and would like your opinion please.

As of this morning it shows the following:

Type of Claim: Compensation

Date Closed: 01/30/2014 (Today)

Updates: Appeal is Possible

Decision Notification Sent

Development Letter Sent

Action: View Board of Veterans' Appeals Status (Link)

I know from reading this website for quite some time, and the wonderful post several helpful people have made, that this doesn't tell me anything other than watch the mail.

My question is this; when I check the benefits letter, it still says "One or more service connected disabilities: No". Would you expect this information to have an actual % listed if the decision were favorable at this time? Would your best guess be that I was turned down again? Does it sometimes take a day or two for this info to update, or would you expect this to be accurate information?

I keep running it through my head, and just don't know how quickly that letter would be updated if I were awarded something, so I can't help but think I have been denied again, and thought I would see what others with more experience had to say.

Thank you in advance for your answer, and thank you for taking the time to read this (what turned out to be a rather long) post.

Forgot to mention that the date of the letter, when I generate one, is 01/30/2014. I saw in another post where that question was asked, so I want to give all the info I can. Thanks again!

Other people definitely have more knowledge than me, however, I'm almost positive that any letter is going to say "Appeal is Possible".

Good luck, and let us know how it turns out!

Thank you for the Reply, and I agree, it would seem that the "Appeal is Possible" shows up on all claims, based on what I've read.

But my question is more specific to the Benefit letter you can print out by going to "Access my Documents" --> "Download VA Letters". When I generate that letter it stills reads "One or more Service Connected Disabilities: No" and the date on the letter is 1/30/2014. I'm just wondering if this letter would already be updated if I was in fact awarded, or if it can take a little time for that info to update.

Thanks again for your reply.

Once again, I am basing my response on what I have learned so far, so please don't take it as gospel, however...

1) Ebenefits is notoriously not accurate, or updated correctly, and...

2) The letter generator is ALWAYS going to put the date of the date that you actually generated the letter, i.e. today.

So, take that for what it's worth.

The only way to know absolutely for SURE I think is when the big brown envelope arrives in the mail. Wishing you the best and keeping my fingers crossed for you! Keep us in the loop!

Try calling your Veteran Service Officer they can look at more than Ebenefits shows. Or you could call 800 827 1000 and ask them.

Thanks for the reply and you're absolutely correct that the only way I am going to know for sure is wait for the snail mail delivery of the final word. Perhaps it's just normal human nature to search for that "One Thing" that tells you yea or nea, but then again I've never been "normal". Just hoping for the best. Don't know if I am mentally capable of handling another denial.

Thanks again for the reply.

    • 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.
