VSO said letter sent but I went bakwards in eBenefits

Question

Hello All,

Has anyone seen something like this before? I submitted my claim 7 July 2015 after the Air Force said I was no longer fit for duty due to medical. I was recently discharged and chose to file my claim for all of the conditions I developed over the last 16 years. In the last 2 months, I moved into Preparation for decision, then pending decision approval, then back to prep for decision. When I was pending approval, there was an estimated timeframe of about a week. This changed 3 times. The last time it went past the date again and then back to prep for decision. This is when I emailed my VSO and asked him what the deal was. He said today, they were making an adjustment to my compensation and that there was an adjustment in my favor and that there was going to be retro pay. I see nothing to indicate this in my eBenefits. I also have another open claim that is open that is pending decision approval that has nothing in it when you open it and its type is authorization review. I have no idea where this claim came from because there is nothing in the body of the claim to say what it's for. It is also dated 45 days earlier than the claim I am waiting on. Any info or ideas is greatly welcomed.

Also, I was originally rated at 20% for 2 service connected conditions from back in 2005 when I left active duty. 2010 i joined the reserves and served for 5 more years. I had many things go wrong at the hands of good ole mil doctors over those 5 years including 4 separate surgeries. This new claim, i have asked for increase the original conditions and claimed an additional 45, many of which are related to each other.

E-benefits is like watching a blank TV screen hoping something is going to happen and not believing what you're seeing.

what I'm trying to say is E-benefits is less than a crap shoot as far as reliability

Unfortunately, I fell into the constant checking. It's like a car wreck!!

 

Don't sweat it, we all do...even the staunch supporters who say don't check ebenefits daily and get a hobby, still check it...I know I'm guilty...?

agree with raidertone.   Checking it is natural, just don't get caught up in the movement forward and back and back and forward, etc.  By "not getting caught up" also includes don't get "emotional" about it.  Unfortunately the VA process is what it is.  What you can't change or influence is not worth the anxiety worrying about it.

Hope that makes sense. you're not the 1st and won't be the last who has to deal with the frustrations.

Just keep the faith.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
