Date Claim Submitted

Rate this question




New to the site and so far I have to say that it looks very beneficial.  My question is regarding my claim submittal date in e-benefits.  I submitted my claim on March 3rd of this year, but when I take a look at my open claims under "work in progress", it has my submittal date as 07/02/16, which is the day after I actually retire.  Should I be concerned with this, or is this normal?  Thanks in advance!

I am taking a WAG ( wild ass guess)

Are you retiring from the Mil that day?

Is it possible you are eligible for CRDP or CRSC?

CRDP  and CRSC can be searched for here in the search feature up top.

If you are still in the Mil, do you expect a discharge due to medical disability? If so do you have a PEBLO ?

PEBLO ( Physical Exam Board Liaison Officer)

Like I said, this is just a guess and maybe ebenefits is wrong on the date

It sounds as though you are still active military and about to retire on July 1, 2016. The VA can accept a claim from someone in the active military as long as they are exiting active service within 180 days, (I think 180 is correct, it could be 90 days.) Nevertheless, the claim from an active service person does not become a formal claim until the day following discharge. There is absolutely nothing you can do about this... it is the law. The good news is that your claim will be processed quickly and you may very well start receiving benefits as soon as you exit active service.
