  • 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.

    • 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.

    • Question About Temporary 100% Rating for Hospitalization
      Hey all. I've searched all over the net, and read the CFR on the topic. I will be going to PTSD Dom inpatient treatment here soon. I read that it's possible to get 100% temp for hospitalization. However, the CFR says that PTSD Dom does not qualify, but then in the exceptions it says that it may. Does anyone know if I will qualify for temp 100%. I will be in there for almost 2 months. Here is the CFR code, and the part regarding the matter-

       

      Do not apply the provisions of 38 CFR 4.29 when a Veteran

      is treated as a resident in a State Veterans’ home is currently receiving a total rating for the disability for which hospitalization was required is a resident in a VA domiciliary program, or is a participant in a live-in/work out program being utilized to facilitate transition to community living.

       

      Exceptions:
      Hospitalization in excess of 21 days for an SC disability in a medical facility located at a State Veterans’ home may entitle the Veteran to hospitalization benefits. Veterans are entitled to hospitalization benefits for treatment in excess of 21 days in a day hospital program if the treatment given is consistent with hospital care for a SC disability even though they are concurrently required to be housed in a VA domiciliary.

      The exceptions part is confusing me. Does anyone know if I am entitled to a temporary 100% rating? I'm currently rated for the same reason I'm going inpatient.
