I just viewed my ebennies award letter and it has me rated at 60%, but it has the two below lines which make me wonder if they have already scheduled me for an automatic reduction in 5 years. Is this right or just standard boiler plate text?

I believe this is standard language and it's possible they may at the time decide not to re-evaluate you.

I was told the same thing bud. As you can see from my Signature, I have a boat load of big %s that at the end of the day mean nothing to me. God Bless and good luck

Moior: 1st I've heard of the statement that your scheduled for a future reduction being included in a VA letter regarding an award. You saw this on your E Benny site, very strange. Usually E Ben has very little information regarding your exact award other than saying appeal is possible.

I have had VSO's refer to "Diary Dates" when discussing appeals and it's not to much of a stretch to think the VA want's to review your SC's for improvement before you hit the 5 year mark or turn 55.

This is standard language on award letters for veterans receiving a temporary rating. Until you receive a permanent rating, you will periodically be scheduled for medical reviews and possible reduction in rating for your service connected conditions. As long as you do not have significant continuing improvement of your service connected conditions, your rating will probably remain the same or possibly be increased if your medical reviews indicate an increase is appropriate.

In order to show continuity of treatment and minimize the possibility of reduction of ratings in the future, you should go to your medical providers on a regular basis so you will always have recent up to date records of the current status of your service connected medical conditions. If your conditions worsen, the records of your medical providers will be useful evidence to support future rating increase requests. Also, your medical providers would probably be more likely to provide you with IMOs to support future rating increase requests if you have maintained a continuing doctor patient relationship and they are already familiar with any changes in your service connected medical conditions.

When you receive a notice from the VA to report for a medical review to determine if your ratings should be reduced, make sure you report for the exam. I would also suggest you obtain and provide a letter to the VA medical review examiner from your medical provider stating the current status of your service connected medical conditions. JMO

Good luck and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

  • 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.
