  • 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

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...

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
