Pending Decision Approval on an Appeal

Rate this question



Hey folks, I hope everyone is well! I need to ask a question about Ebennies and my appeal please. When I look at Ebenefits under my open claims, my appeal is listed. It says my appeal is currently in Pending Decision Approval stage. My question is...Is an appeal the same as a claim on Ebenefits? I've gone through the claims process four times in the last 6 years, and normally when it gets to this stage I am just days away from the end. Is it the same with an appeal? I only ask because this is my first appeal, and it was just put in April 17th of this year, but it was a pretty simple, one issue appeal. I also lawyered up this time. It just seems a little quick for an appeal, but...Has anyone gone through this process and watched it on Ebennies? Thanks!

Wolf, certainly don't want to pi$$ on your fire, but I've have never seen an E-Ben up-date indicating a Denial Decision is Pending Approval.

All Decisions, both Awards, and Denials have to be approved by a Sr Rating Staff Supervisor.

Hope it goes your way.

Thanks Gastone! I realize that it doesn't mean it's "Approved"...I guess I'm just wondering if an appeal is similar to a regular claim in the steps it goes through on Ebennies. In my experience with regular claims, once it gets to this point I'm pretty close to the end. Just wondering if its the same with an appeal, and I am in fact close.
