  • 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

Question

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

NOTHING ON E BENEFITS TO ADDRESS YOUR CLAIM FILED ON DATE 11 -11-2015 AND ADD YOUR CLAIM#

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.

Thanks

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.

    • 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.
