Question

2 weeks ago I called my VA rep because my claim finally moved from gathering of evidence to pending decision approval. She told me to sit down, and told me that I got it: 100% P&T and that they were back paying me to a year ago!!!! I was shocked beyond believe. Also, last Tuesday a VA worker from the regional office called me to verify my address to send the decision. Between now and then the status has jumped to preparation for notification to pending decision approval. Then, 10 min ago it went back down to preparation for decision!!! What?!? I called my VA rep and she said that it still says 100% P&T, but that maybe they had to change the wording on the cover letter?!

I can't stand how it jumps around so much, especially after being told I got the 100%! My nerves are shot, and my anxiety is through the roof! Anyone else experience this?

TEE: Take a breath, all movement is good. If you haven't already done so, set up your Bank or CU account to TXT and EMail you regarding any and all DEPOSITS and withdrawals. My Retro was in my Account about 4 days before I got the Big Brown Award/Denial Envelope. I got the TXT advising me of the LARGE Deposit at 7:00AM. Way to start the day, right!! My DRO Hearing was 6/27/14, had a copy of Official DRO Award Decision that same afternoon. Didn't receive the Award Envelope until the end of 07/14.

I have had direct deposit with everything since I got discharged in 2011. I'm still waiting to get the envelope, but now that the status changed I get SO NERVOUS. Don't they know that PTSD is a STRESS disorder?? Thanks for your advice. I will try my best to sit tight and NOT check ebenefits.

TEE: We all have the direct deposit these days. You would be surprised the number of Vets and non Vets that don't have automatic TXT and EMail notification set up on their Credit Union and Bank Accounts. If you already have that feature set up, your ahead of the curve. I meet with a number of NAM PTSD Vets, none of them had a clue that TXT or EMail notifications from their Banks/CUs were available.

Aste,

Congrats on the good news and sorry about the Ebennie Shuffle. My current claim was at Prep for Decision from Dec 14 until 2 weeks ago, and now it went back to Gathering of Evidence. Now I just found out that I have a ton of C&Ps over the next two weeks at multiple VAs, WTH! Now I have a PTSD Exam Review next Wednesday too. Just tired of this roller coaster.

Ugh, so sorry Navy04!! This process is so stressful. I try to not even check ebennies, but I just want them to be done with the claim. It's all worth it in the end though! I just keep in touch with my VSO and let the VA do their thing. Good luck on your C&Ps!

  • 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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.

    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
