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...

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
