  • 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

Pending Decision Approval on an Appeal

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.

How are reviewing the status of an appeal?  I did not think you could.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
