I would like to know if ebenefits is having issues with anyone. First my husband had his C&P exam on the 24th of November and in the morning on the 25th of November ebennies said he was at the preparing for notification stage and that evening, it was back at gathering evidence with a decision notification sent. Has anyone had issues with ebenefits? Thank you.

We all constantly have issues with ebenefits. It is not unusual for the status to change from preparation for notification back to gathering of evidence. You will probably see another change in status in a few days. On my last claim, my status went from preparation for decision back to gathering of evidence and then a couple days later it went to preparation for notification. Absolutely drove me nuts until I received the BBE a couple weeks later.

One thing you can do is to keep checking the downloadable VA letters on ebenefits. Sometimes the AB8 letter in the downloadable VA letters will show a change in rating status before it is shown anywhere else. I was able to find my change in rating status on my AB8 letter a few days before I received my BBE. Also, keep checking your direct deposit account for retro pay. My retro showed up in my account before I received my BBE.

Good luck and please express my thanks to your husband for his service.

Thank you both for your responses. I called the 1800 number and according to them he does not have an open claim at this time. She said that they may have accidentally put it up when they wanted to assess his compensation. She also mentioned that his appeal with a DRO is still in the beginning stage after over 2 years.. I think that i gave myself false hope thinking that his C&P exam was them actually looking into is appeal and not seeing if he was better ( they could have read his medical records for that).

Thank you both for your service and enjoy your holiday.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.


    Leading to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?


    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

  • 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
