    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

As long as it doesn't go from an FDC to a Reg A$$ Claim, be patient, one way or the other, a Decision will eventually be made.

I don't see an SC % listed on your profile?

Just be sure that whatever bank account is set up as your VA Direct Deposit account, the notifications are set to Txt & Email you real-time regarding all financial transactions.

I've always got my Retro direct Deposit 2 - 4 weeks before anything showed up on E-Ben. As for the actual Award Letter, anywhere from 2 to 4 mos after the Retro hit.

Have to admit though, this past 01/03/16, E-Ben had a mid 12/2015 Award Listed, Retro Hit a week later. Maybe E-Ben has finally got their act together. A 04/16 EED CUE Review Retro hit 07/16, E-Ben still showed it as an open claim when I received the Award letter end of 08/16. E-Ben was a little slow on that one.

Thanks Gastone, 

my situation is this. I'm currently 70%. 40 for hearing, 30 for shoulder, 10 for  tinnitus and 10 for bhronchitis. 

I submitted a FDC in February for mental condition to include PTSD, (which was submitted with a ton of evidence including a completed  DBQ) a bladder condition (CUE from years back) and secondary shoulder condition. 3 conditions total in this most recent claim.

I have been scheduled for CP for the bladder and shoulder for Jan 4th of 2017.  Nothing scheduled for the mental health claim. It's been at least 3 weeks since my ebenefits stated "prep for notification" and nothing  hit my account and nothing in the mail. Then a few days ago it went back to pending decision. 

So now that you have the details, any thoughts?

The PTSD DBQ, was that the result of an actual VA Forensic C & P Psychiatrist or Psychologist PhD?

A PTSD DBQ completed by any other Private or VA MH Clinician, takes a backseat to the Mandatory VA Forensic PTSD C & P Exam using the DSM V criteria. The Secondary Shoulder & Bladder issues could be resolved without the need for a C & P, providing the necessary Compelling Evidence (Med Recs & DX's) are in the hands of the Rater.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.

    • Additional 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits

      If you reach 100% P and T there are more benefits available to you. This is by no means an extensive list and we recommend calling the Veterans Affairs at 1-800-827-1000 with any questions about the following benefits.

      Check your state benefits here
