Ebenefits Claim Went From Prep For Decision Back To Gathering Evidence


Shadow2b

Question

LAst Thursday, my eBenefits status changed three times. I had my C&P exam two weeks ago (at which point my claim was at Gathering of Evidence), and my results were received and updated in ebenefits a few days after. Last week on Monday, my status changed to Review Of Evidence, then on Wednesday to Prep for Decision, then Pending Decision approval on Thursday with a completion date of 12/10/14 to 3/25/15., At the end of the day I checked again and it had gone back to Gathering of Evidence with an expected completion date of sometime in 2016. Is it normal for this to happen? Especially since depending on the rating I may be getting a fairly large retro check? I checked all the letters on ebennies and didn't see any updates.

A little further info:I am already rated 20 percent, which I haven't received in almost 2 years, since the VA has not restarted my payments since I got back from deployment with the guard a year ago. I originally filed this claim in January of 2012, but it was also closed when I deployed and I had to reopen it when I got back.(Last November) I had four claims, PTSD(open), Hearing Loss, Knee Sprain(increase) and Achillies Tendonitis. I have had all of my C&P's, and submitted every single possible piece of evidence I could think of. SO I am not sure what else they would need to gather.

Any thoughts or opinions would be much appreciated

Yes it's normal. It's not unusual for them to almost decide a claim and then say wait a minute there's something else I need to check on --so then it goes back to gathering of evidence.

Hang in there!

Same thing keeps happening to me, Shadow2b. every time I get close to the estimated completion date of my decision, I get brought back to gathering evidence, and sent to a specialist or a C & P. Worst part is, every time im sent, the C & P goes great, the docs validate my claim, and add more active diagnosis to my charts. Then the process repeats. Filed my initial in early 2013, not slotted now to be finished until dec 2015 or later. Just hang in there. From what Ive read and seen, the Ebennies claims status chart is just to keep you on your toes.

It certainly seems that way. I don't know why else I would need another C&P since I got them already. Medic,Did they send you back for a second C&P for the same issues? That seems crazy. I am trying to be optimistic and hope maybe it is getting a last look. It was a massive D%^ktease that it did all this movement in a week just to come to a grinding halt. My RO is Oakland, which has a ginormus backlog, another reason I was surprised at the movement.
