  • 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

So am I looking at 5yrs for a EED decision or will they start looking now into my EED.   It's been a year. And there is only a few documents for them to look at.  My case is in Detroit.

Jay stated:

  "I have paperwork I gave VA that clearly states that in 2011 I left my job due to a service connected disability and Social Security Disability agreed with the disability.  I was never reimbursed for the disability by VA at the 100% level.  This case should be a no brainer. "

If you filed in or around 2011 and sent them the info as to the SSDI award (and if they in turn contacted the SSA)and if you, since that time, consistently pursued the same claim, you could  be possibly looking at a very favorable EED. I assume the paperwork you sent in also regarded the 21-8940 TDIU form....

You are at 100% now....do you expect a SMC S award?

Is this the same claim you are talking about in another thread????

 

 

"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.  Tshere is small mention that I requested a NOD and a DRO review.  However, nothing else is in Ebenfit.  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."

 

The EED for the 11/11/15 will be that date. I can only assume the claim you want a 5 year retro on ----is some other claim???????

Jay. I'm at Det RO also. You asked for a DRO Review and have submitted the Mandatory N & M Evidence, that wasn't available to the original Rater for review, right???

DRO Reviews are completed in the Order they're received. Traditionally, Reviews are handled faster than DRO Hearings. I don't know but I don't think the DRO's cherry pick the easy files.

Yes I have SMC but not sure what letter maybe L or R.   The claim does regard the 21-8940 TDIU which I have a hard time with.  Why put in a TDIU claim now when you are already 100% will the change my 100%?  I am not sure if they ever contacted SSD or not because at that time I hadn't been awarded SSD benefits.  Once I was awarded I sent VA a notice to the fact.

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.

    • VA has a special where we can ask questions TODAY, at 3:00 to "people that matter?"  Someone should ask why we can not ask them questions EVERY day, why today only? (This is a big problem with VA..the 800 number often does not give specific answers).  We should have people in VA who "solve Vets problems" like Allison Hickey did a few years ago.
