Question

Hello,

This is my first post to the site :rolleyes:. I am wondering if anyone else has had their disabilities disappear on Ebenefits. My second claim has showed complete as of two days ago, however, two of the four disabilities I claimed are completely gone from the "Rated Disabilities" and two are showing "Not Service Connected." My picture below is from my page. The Tinnitus, bilateral hearing loss and equilibrium are all from my first claim, depression and migraines are recent. I am wondering if the two that aren't showing will be approved, and that is why two are showing up as not connected.  Or if I'm just thinking too much. I have searched and searched the internet and haven't found a similar question to mine anywhere, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I was also told by Peggy that my decision was mailed, but you all understand how anxious that wait feels :unsure: Anyways, any advice or thoughts is greatly appreciated, Thank you in advance brothers and sisters! :smile:

If your claim is in its final stages, your eBenifits page will be going haywire for a couple days.  You will probably get snail mail before eBenifits stops spining like a casino's one arm bandit.

Good luck,

Another possibility is that the claimed disabilities were combined by the rater. This happens when two or more claimed disabilities are essentially the same. For example, suppose you claimed arthritis in the left hand and arthritis in two fingers of the left hand. The rater would most likely combine those two claimed disabilities. Another example could be lower back pain as one disability and a damaged spinal disc as a second disability. If the damaged disc is the cause of the pain then there is no need for the lower back pain contention.

Thank you both for your replies. As an update, all my claims were denied. I have to go to a specialist to see if my conditions can be connected to my tinnitus as secondary, then file a reconsideration. Tired of the waiting and letdowns, but I'll keep on. Thanks again. I'll periodically post updates.

Ebenefits is notoriously unreliable.   This said, dont disregard it completely, because lazy VA employees love to "close" claims that are in process without bothering to adjuticate them, resulting in a many year delay for Veterans.  They did precisely that to me, more than once.  

So, now that I have a Phd in "being futbucked by VA" at H and K U (aka "college of hard knocks"), I will advise the following:

1.  Send an IRIS email to VA asking status of your claim, pointing out it disappeared from ebenefitss.

2.  Send a similar email to your VSO if you have one.  

3.  Follow up (its up to you to look out for your interests) with another IRIS in 3 weeks if no response, again asking what happened, and reference your email described in number 1 and 2 above.  

4.  Send a letter to VA confirming your emails, with a copy of them. 

5.   Send an email to "ask Bob", the VASEC.

6.  If still no response, consider filing a writ of mandamus.  

Do these is the order above.  A writ wont be considered unless you do.
