  • 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

Ebenfits Updates


Helllo All

               I was hoping someone could help me understand.  On November 11, 2016 it will have been a year since I submitted a NOD DRO review.

I checked ebenefits to see if there are any updates or movement and there are none.  It is completely empty.   Can anyone shed some light as to why this is.  Will it always be this way?

By the way the case is a retro (back pay) I believe they owe me.


       Thanks for everyone's input

Have you checked all your options in E-BENEFITS?

Historical Claims? Claims gathering evidence? 

Status of Claim?

You definitely need to call the 1-800 # or contact your R.O. Asap  don't let your nod  time line run out.

you will need something to file your I-9 to the BVA to keep your appeal going.  like a SOC? OR A Denial from your NOD

IF YOU HAVE NOTHING ON E-BENEFITS ABOUT YOUR CLAIM   GET YOUR COPY THAT YOU FIRST FILED & COPY AND FAX THEM TO THE JANSEVILLE EVIDENCE CENTER JANESVILLE  WI & R.O. be sure and let them know that this is not a New claim but evidence to a claim you filed back on 11-11 2015


Other Elder members please chime in!

Thanks Buck52 for your input.   Ebenefits has a date of 11/11/15 which is when I submitted the claim.  I have an attorney who submitted the I9.  So all that is good.  I've check historical claims, and all the links I could think of.  There is small mention that I requested a NOD and a DRO review.  However, nothing else is in Ebenfits.  Is it normal to have Ebenfits be blank on the status of the case for a year? It doesn't tell me what they are looking at where in the process they are at completely nothing. Thanks again for your inputs.

No its not normal,  they either lost your entire claim or shredded it.??

if you get no explanation from VA?

  I'd would send Bob McDonald an EMAIL  OR his office about this b/c they should be able to tell you the status of your claim.

 Or Maybe I am not understanding  here?  if your Attorney has submitted the I9?  but even then you should have been notified on e benefits that they recieved you I9 at BVA

         Yea no I9 menioned on ebenefits.  I did call the 1-800-827-1000 and they said it's ready to rate but none of this is showing on ebenefits for me to track.  Maybe I'll try telling the folks at 1-800-827-1000 and tell them I'm willing to write Mr. McDonald.  Do you know the phone number and/or email address.

So can anyone tell me if it is normal for a NOD/DRO review to take more then a year and also have no updates to ebenefits?   I. Have alll the correct paper work in.    The NOD is for retroactive pay.   Should I send an IRIS request on why ebenefits is not updating?   Peggy says my case is ready for review since September.

Thanks for all your constructive  responses.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
