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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Can't Track Appeal Status On E-Benefits

Question

Good morning everyone,

So, can you only track your appeal status on e-benefits, if your appeal is at BVA? I have a three year old appeal still at my local RO [ Atlanta ] - two years since C and P exams btw -, and when I hit on appeal status all I get is, " Our records indicate you do not currently have an appeal at BVA, please contact your local RO for information", or some such. I know it's all just a load of junk anyway, but I was just curious.

Steve

Did you file Form 9 asking to go to BVA? Are you waiting for DRO Hearing? From what I read you should be able to see if your claim has reached the BVA. Often a claim will languish at the RO even after you file Form 9 asking for BVA hearing. When the BVA is ready to hear your claim they will ask for your case, but RO has to certify your claim to the BVA. Contact VARO and find out where your claim is at right now. It could just be sitting at the RO.

We have a similar situation on our end. Do you have any other appeals pending at the Board or the Court that the VA wants to resolve first before the RO certifies the Board appeal and sends it to the Board? We have a Form 9 sent to the RO from May 2012 that's still there. The Board is already aware of it because we sent a certified mail copy to them at the same time we sent it to the RO. If this goes much longer, I'm looking at filing a Writ of Mandamus petition to get it dislodged.

Thanks for the replies. No, I haven't filed any form 9 for forwarding to BVA, and I have nothing currently with BVA. this is just an appeal, with three issues, that according to Peggy, and 1000 number is still "awaiting DRO review", at local RO- Atlanta. March will make three years since receipt of NOD, and two years since C and P exams for two of the issues at QTC.

Mine was the same way...My DRO NOD took 52 months to get finalized and eBennys never updated the status until the claim was closed. It said the same thing for years. Good Luck

I Recommend you seek assistance from a Service Officer from one of the Veterans Organizations. It shouldn't be just some Service Officer but, one who serves at your states VA Regional Office. I used an American Legion Department Service Officer. I asked him directly what the deal was with my appeal. He walked over to the VARO and ask about my appeal. They supposedly sit in on the shelf. Saying I had requested a withdraw from the appeal process. He told them I never made such a request. If I had it would have come through his office first. I've had a "traveling BVA hearing" at my VARO five months ago. Supposedly its assigned to a VLJ in DC. I expect it to take at least two more years for a decision to be rendered. If it turns out this way. I'm looking at least four years from beginning to end. Sorry, if it's not what you were expecting.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
