  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

    • Howdy all,

      The VA DRO denied my claim for an earlier effective date for my sleep apnea. They originally denied it in 2008 but granted it in Nov 2019 secondary to my GERD. I was rated for GERD in 2001. So I had it in 2008. I have attached the 2008 denial, 2018 approval, and the NOD SOC. All of my medical files and the medical articles and VA Citations referenced were in existence in or before Jan 2008. The only new items were the NEXUS letter from Dr Bash and a few extra buddy letters. The original denial states that my medical records show no diagnosis or treatment and only isolated complaints of symptoms. The denial does not even list my wife's or my lay statements as evidence reviewed. I have symptoms listed numerous times in my SMRs:

      a. Medical visit dated 24 Feb 76 for problem sleeping and depression.
      b. Physical exam dated 24 Jan 79 listed frequent/severe headaches" dizziness, and
      nervousness.
      c. Physical exam dated 07 Nov 83 listed frequent/severe headaches.
      d. Physical exam dated 16 Jan 85 listed frequent/severe headaches.
      e. Admitted to hospital 05 Aug 86 for chest pains and anxiety.
      f. Medical visit dated 14 Jul 87 for problem sleeping and morning confusion.
      g. Physical exam dated 25 Feb 88 listed dizziness.
      h. Physical exam dated 07 Oct 91 listed frequent/severe headaches
      i. Physical exam dated 25 Aug 93 listed headache.
      j. Hernia repair surgery dated 22 Ang 94 surgeon had to insert devices of some
      kind in each of my nostrils that went down into my throat to keep rny airway
      open and stop my disruptive snoring.
      k. Physical exam dated 29 Sep 99 listed frequent/severe headaches.

      So could you all take a look and let me know what you think.

When Does Ebenefits Update Status For Us To See?

Question

Recommended Posts

  • 0

Typically Mon and Fri are the best days to see updates, even though Ebenefits is always behind the ball.

Does anyone know how often Ebenefits updates status for Vets to view???

When my claim was nearing the end (review of evidence to prep for notification, I rarely checked it before then), it seemed to update around 1630 CST. Not scientific but I typically waited until after that time and would see changes. Between pending decision approval and prep for notification, it updated the same day. 

Hope that helps.

PS I am one of those that checks it daily btw. I know we are told not to but I rarely do what Im told. :rolleyes:

Brother if i can give you some advice that i often dont follow...

Dont play the Ebenefits "whats behind door number one" game.  It will drive you crazy checking every few hours for an update.  Try and make it so you check once every monday or something to that effect.

Also Ebenefits statuses are nice, but they are not authoritative at all.

More often the reflect who has your claim at that moment, than any real progress.  Youll see it bounce around sometimes from "review of evidence" to "gathering of evidence" or even from "preparation for decision" or "pending decision approval" to then get bounced back to "review of evidence".  doesnt mean anything bad or good, it just means your claim has gone to different people and back again etc.

Check every monday and just be patient.

lol.  I don't think many follow this advice.  Ive been pending my BVA hearing for a few years now.  And any time there is any movement I end up checking behind doors 1 2 and 3 multiple times a day until it clicks that this is the VA and nothing is going to happen for another decade and I give up looking lol.

Then they taunt me with a letter or C&P exam and it starts all over again.

      Yesterday my claim moved to Prep for decision, this was a week after my latest C&P, I was feeling optimistic that the estimated completion date of 9/4 was reasonable.  Today it moved back to review of evidence and my date oushed to 9/14.  This is a claim with 1 increase, 2 new, 2 secondary.  I filed my claim 9/24/18 it seems like a long time for a claim.
       
      Anyway, my question is: have any of you had the claim move from "prep for Decision" only to regress to review of evidence?  If so, what was the timeline like?

      Hello, I checked ebenefits and it said I received a GRANT from the CAVC for increased rating "anklyosis of the shoulder." I had appealed for depression and anxiety as well and they were not addressed on ebenefits so I am guessing it is still on remand at the BVA level. Ebenefits also stated that my remand would take 16-24 months. I am currently 60% with 10 for tinnitus, 20 for ankle, 20 for shoulder, 20 for shoulder radicupathy, 10 for knee. What does all this mean? if I am not providing the information needed for input I am happy to do that but at this time I dont know what else to provide you guys.
      Thank you.

      So on my threads about my first claim under AMA I stated I put this here to track time and the AMA process.
      My claim for Voiding Dysfunction was filed on May 8 2019  and closed June 16th 2019 (according to VA.GOV)
      so basically 36 days.
      I was denied, and will start writing my NOD.
      What is new besides the speed, is that on Ebenefits yesterday I noticed a new entry under my listed Disabilities.
      It will be good for others to start tracking this to see if this remains the standard.
      It was marked Pending Claims.
      Today after visiting VA.Gov and seeing my claim closed I went to Ebennies and looked under Disabilities and the DENIED claims are already showing.
      This is a change in process. It used to take some time to get Ebennies updated. usually at least 10 days.
      today however, the day after VA.gov says the claim closed, I see the following
      It will be good for others to start tracking this to see if this remains the standard
      I am tagging in a few people who I know are active here and may have recent claims under AMA.

      hopefully you all will help track this change. It can alleviate some of the "wait time" stress as we look for the BBE in the mail. If you all see someone asking about processing time for a claim please ask them to track for this notification under Ebenefits Disability link.

      my appeal  status has changed to Prep for notification as of yesterday.  With the change  my dependents have also disappeared from my award and is now in the drop box of “  not on award". Has this happened to anyone else? Im hoping there’s been a change to my increase and this ebennies way of updating rating. Any positive stories? Thanks! 
    • By MrStryker
      The claim status and historical claims has moved from ebenefits to va.gov.  I don't like the layout of vets.gov as it doesn't give you as many details as ebeneifts.
