  • 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

E-Bennies Question

Question

Hey guys & gals...A couple of questions. I submitted an FDC claim for sleep apnea (my SMRs with military diagnosis and surgery to have my tonsils out to try and alleviate the sleep apnea with acknowledgement of the records by Buffalo VARO from 2012, a DBQ, private physician records, my polysomnograph w/ CPAP, and a medical opinion from my doc using the NEXUS format with more likely than not verbage for the apnea but she also put on there my high blood pressure is also caused by the apnea...did not put in a claim for it) back in October to the Buffalo VARO. My claim stayed in under review until about 2 weeks ago when it automatically jumped to Preparation for Decision. Is it normal for a claim to jump like that and how long does it normally stay at that phase? Also I had put in a dependency claim back in October with it, and was wondering if that will delay the decision on the sleep apnea claim until thats approved? Any information or knowledge would be greatly appreciated! Thank you all for your service.

NemosNavy,

It is not unusual for the status of your claim on Ebenefits to jump back and forth. There are different reasons this happens. As to why yours did, only the VA knows. Since your claim is in the "preparation for decision" status, you should keep a check on your "Benefit Summary Letter" under "Downloadable VA Letters" on ebenefits. Any change in your rating will usually be reflected here before you receive your official notice from the VA.

Good luck to you and thank you for your service.

Georgiapapa.

I've had multiple claims (including a dependency claim) going through at one time, and I found that they would usually wait for the claims to finish at the same time. That was my experience with that. I'm currently waiting on a claim that has been jumping back and forth for a little while. It's likely to make a big jump if they have done something with it. Any movement is good news with the VA! :)

good luck!

Thanks for the replies. I'll definitely check the "Benefit Summary Letter" georgia papa. Asteketee, I was wondering if the dependent claim could be the hold up and they were waiting on that to clear. I just thought it was strange to see movement so early, when I see others having to wait so long.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
