confused on claim status

Question

I am confused on my claim status the DAV sent a letter to me telling me of my increase, E-benefits shows my increase, but I go to open claims and it show this:

05/13/2016 Compensation 05/13/2017 Online Claim_received

So did someone reopen the claim, the DAV said I would receive back pay to May 15, 2016, have not seen that either, any thoughts?

 

Thanks Rita

check your Bank account   that's a good way to see.....   usually  any retro arrives before your decision packet.

SOME TIMES IT TAKES THEM A WHILE TO PLACE THINGS IN THE COMPUTER  & IT TAKES AT LEAST 3 DAYS BEFORE ITS IN E -BENEFITS.

The date 5-13 2016  should be the date they go by for your retro  if this is when you first filed?

  The 5-13 2017 is either an error  or your 1 year anniversary date. if this was an NOD decision  then  the 5-13-2017  would be your expiration date  on your claim  you have until 5-13 2017 to  have file.

 not sure why they put that 5-13 -2017 date up? could be a dairy date for Exam? maybe?

Other members can chime in

well if this was a recent decision your VSO Rep (DAV) finds out first and sends you a letter  but VA Raters will wait like 2 weeks to get your packet together , after 2 weeks and you don't get your packet call IRIS or your R.O.   Let them know you have not recieved your decision packet and no retro in your bank account.  can they please check on this for you.

    • 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:
