Pending Approval back Prep for Decision



I'm sorry for all the posts and all the questions, i just dont know where else to turn :(

My claim is for temp 100, it was mess and finally the got my cfile they needed, my claim went from GOE to PFD yesterday and the PDA today.

I called my rep and he said that it was approved for the temp 100 and that they have my rating change to 30% starting 2-1-17 pending a doc requesting additional time.

Then at 5pm tonight my claim went back to prep for decision? Why would it do that? Could it be because the retro is over 10K? Does this mean that my claim is not approved and the person that would approve the rater decision is indicating its an incorrect rating?

It means somebody else had to take a look at something. It also means don't obsessively check the benefits every day you'll just drive yourself crazy.

I assumed it was because somebody saw something, but I also thought at this point they are not reviewing my claim they are reviewing the work of the rater. 

Has anyone been told from their VSO that there claim was approved only to have it go back to prep for decision and be denied?

I'm wondering also if its the amount of retro that they owe me for that is causing additional signatures?

It is almost definitely because the VSR that processed the Notification letter and award made a mistake so the Authorization VSR has sent it back to them for correction. Happens all the time and there isn't anything to really be concerned about.

I agree that watching eBenefits like that isn't the best idea. It'll drive you mad.

It most likely has nothing to do with retro or signatures.

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
