    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question 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.
    Rephrase the question: 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 of your claim?”

  • 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

Finally Movement But In What Direction?



My FDC filed 7 SEP 14 under the BDD program went to preparation for decision 22 DEC 14, stayed there until today when it went to pending decision approval---big BUT here as Dr Phil says---when it was PFD my estimated date of completion was betweeen 4/11/15 and 7/18/15 now that got pushed back to 5/15/15 and 8/4/15. I cannot wrap my damaged brain around that concept--how can it get moved along to a higher stage but pushed further back in time---wow---VA math sucks along with logic that went out the window too

Some parts of ebenefit's are useful and some will drive you nuts. Don't pay attention to estimated completion dates. They constantly change and rarely make sense. JMO

Good luck to you.

There are lots of factors behind the dates you see. When the VA develops claims, they have to do what is called a suspense. The suspense is there for tracking purposes in order to meet deadlines on veterans claims. The suspense is put there after requesting documents, exams, when ready to rate and paying the veteran. Hang in there and don't be discouraged because there is a reasoning behind everything. Like I always say whenever the VA ask you for something always turn it in to them as quickly as possible in order to avoid delays. GOOD LUCK!!

I filed my current FDC Nov 14, went to Prep for Decision until Jan 15, then back to Gathering of Evidence, a ton of C&Ps at 2 different VAs, RO decides to Review a few of my High %s in Feb 15 that are not due to be Reviewed until Feb 16, now back at Prep for Decision for the last 7 weeks or so. What does my timeline tell you bud, and my claim has no estimated completed date, as there is a message stating my claim is not like a normal claim, WTH!!!
