Evidence Requested Is Past Due

Rate this question



On my ongoing claim for increase in compensation, ebenefits shows the "evidence requested from others" as past due. The evidence requested shows it was sent to a VA medical facility, and was due yesterday, Sept 3rd.

Will their failure to apparently submit evidence to their own agency slow my claim down??? I have been battling this for a long time, and am fed up with how long this has taken. I was told at my 2nd C&P exam, again, that they had everything needed and there was no need to submit anything else (I brought it all along with me just in case).

I have submitted gobs of evidence and had two separate C&P exams for the same thing, and both exams say the same thing.

I'm sorry you're fed-up but, hey, that's life w/the VA. The missing records could slow it down some more. Remember the C&P exams aren't all they use. Ya know, maybe the adjudicator just needed to clear his/her desk and the quickest way was to request info "again." Remember it's an office type that makes the decision, not the C&P examiner. They get "their" evaluations on how fast they move paper from one pile to the next, not the quality of their work. jmo

I got the same message too regarding a claim.

I just ignored it.

I have learned nothing happens fast and all you can do is perfect your claim and tie up loose ends.

More than likely the evidence they requested has already been received and they have not updated Ebenefits.

Georgia is right on this one. My last claim which was done in Apr 14, said evidence past due. The RO had received everything but Ebennies was not up to date. Then a few weeks later my claim was finalized and I was increased from 80 to 100%. Nothing to worry about bud. Just try to breath and don't worry about it.

Philip, they do have quality they have to meet as well. Also they don't get credit for claims they are working on, only those that they close.
