Question

Hello i am new to the forums, hoping to find some answers.  I am currently going through an MEB, i have my rating packet from the va but it shows on my ebenefits that it is still gathering evidence.  The va packet was given to me by my peblo.  I also cant generate a letter saying what my percentage is.  Trying to see if this is because i am still active?  Or if there is something else i need to do?  Thanks in advanced for any help.

Welcome to Hadit!

The current status of Ebenefits is only as current as the people who keep it updated. It is not unusual for it to lag behind.

When Ebenefits came out, they had two levels of authentication. The first level you could do online and access some features on the site. The second level required in-person authentication and allowed access to additional features. I think that part has been changed. I'm not sure if you are fully enrolled, so I recommend you click on Contact and call them. They should be able to explain why you cannot access some features.

An "update" is coming out for the letter generation the later part (very late) part of June 2016.

They "hope" this fixes the issue and some other issues.

This is what you get by going with the lowest bidder.

If you applied for comp prior to the end of service then you will not get an official status from the VA until the day following your date of discharge. Essentially, you cannot be on active duty and receive compensation. It is the law. Keep in mind, it will probably take the VA a couple of weeks following your discharge to receive your newest DD214 and finish processing the claim, but the effective date will be the day following your discharge.

Great info!

Back 20+ years ago when I got out, they simply told me to go visit my county VA rep and they would start the process. I'm really glad they changed that.

Back from vacation, time to get back to work on everything...

Vync, it was the same for me.  Go to the VA and "trust the system",  I obviously either didn't pay attention or just didn't hear the next part about being sure to bring plenty of K-Y...

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.
