Bva Made Decision But Nothing Changed

This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 


Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 


This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.




Ebenefits now says BVA has made a decision on my husband's claim as of today but nothing has changed on download letters. The Rater told us on 01/07 that she was awarding the claim but needed to schedule two C&Ps to determine severity and residuals. Had the c&ps last week.

By nothing changing, does that mean there is no rating given or has it possibly not caught up?

C&ps did look favorable to us and DAV.

Of course, DAV can't be reached now.

I know there is the waiting on the letter thing, but.....

It depends on what they ruled. When they approved mine it didnt raise my overall percentage. It still took a few weeks for the letter to arrive.

Yes it was. DAV says it is 80% for kidney and 50 for adjustment disorder. I do feel that the adjustment disorder should have been 70 due to the suicidal ideation. The C&P did not mention it but then again, that C&P did not mention anything because the doctor did not ask about problems, etc. it is all through my husbands VA treatment records though. Could that be considered a CUE?

Wow, Kate, that was fast. You all just filed your NOD not too long ago, which was a great move.

I'm having a similiar situation here. My appeal suddenly had a decision by the BVA yesterday, completely out of the blue. I didn't have C&Ps, a hearing, nothing. In fact, I didn't even know my C-file had transferred. Seems like the DRO at the RO worked with the BVA to generate a decision very quickly and maybe get me off the books. But, my AB8 letter doesn't show any change either, which like your husband's, should have. So I'm also waiting to see what happens. This is new territory for me, so I don't have any experience in how fast decisions update in the system when the BVA is involved. Maybe it takes longer?

Seems like there must be some sort of preliminary process in place either at the BVA or between the BVA and the ROs to whittle down the number of appeals that are piling up.

  • 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?

    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
