  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Please excuse my ignorance with this forum. I have spent several hours reading through forums and questions, and haven't seen "my question" yet. If it has been asked and answered I didn't see it.

I filed for VA Disability in August of last year. I provided (what I assumed) was ample documentation for each referenced issue (including sleep study tests and results and tests and results from my nerve conduction study).

I monitored the Ebenefits sites for any signs of progress. I submitted all request forms (permission to access any and all medical records twice).

Last week my status changed to Preparation for Decision. Saturday morning it had changed to Preparation for Notification. Checked this morning and it was the same. I checked again this afternoon and now...nothing. No status, no nothing. It show "0" for all open claims, historical claims, and even appeals.

I tried to call the 800 number for clarification but got the "we are too busy" message.


Anyone ever experienced this? I have not gotten any mail or anything. I know (and now understand why) I shouldn't let Ebenefits and it's info "rule" my life, but it appears I have gone off the radar on the site. I was already feeling like I needed to tie a knot at the end of my rope; now this? WTH?

Thanks for any input...

BFIW:   I heard that "Peggy" at the 800 number took the day off..     Seriously, others will chime in and

no doubt advise;  ebenefits  is like the weather..  Sometimes you can depend on it and sometimes you can't.

Bet you hear something by mail on Fri.    Well maybe Mon?


Hang in there, your almost at the finish line!!

I bet your denial letter is in the mail.  Sorry that's mean but sadly I probably have a 95% chance of being correct. It takes up to ten days in the mail and you can call the 1 800 827 1000 number to verify your address, but they won't tell you whats in the letter.


Edit: Hey I figured I should edit this about what I said above because in the event you actually do get denied, you should know that WE ALL GET DENIED.  It's part of the process, and the process is long and it is grueling.  Please, hang in there with us and don't give up!  I'm so poor right now that I weigh less than I did when I was in high school, so if I haven't quit then neither can you.

    • 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.
