  • 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.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
