E-Benefits and Appeal Status Question

Question

So... I have had a few conditions pending for a decision on an appeal and was awarded and paid.... I checked ebenefits and my percentage changed, percentages of each condition was modified accordingly, and everything seems to be up to date.... but when I check the status of the appeal, it says it is still in remanded appeal status and still with the AMC or original office making a decision... it has been a few days, and was wondering if appeal status's change or could they be considering other ailments found during my C&P exam?? I thoulght if you get paid, e-benefits would be updated to complete prior to them sending out compensation... any experience or thoughts to the status remaining in remand status and an award has been given.... I am maybe jumping the line by asking now since I did not recieve my envelope yet but curious to know..

Sometimes even after you get paid they do a review of everything it happens I received 96k in retro and then it remained open until they did a review of everything.

I got a call saying my remand was being pulled to be worked two months but so no changes on ebenefits status. I inquired to the VA about status updates on ebenefits and they said they are work on updating the appeals part of Work In Progress so it won't show any updates until they have completed their updates.

I started getting paid for a condition last February.  It was one of several I claimed.  EBenefits still shows that one condition as part of my open claim although they added a percentage for it and sent me a letter.  So it sounds normal.

for 2 years i have been fighting with the expensive EBENEFITS people. this is an expense to tax payers and for some reason they dont have any accountability. my fight is that in my appeals update its has said for 2 years that im waiting for a hearing to be scheduled at the BVA. the funny thing is,,, my hearing already took place in may of 2015 . i have relentlessly been explaing this to them but they say that they cant update until told to.

    • 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
