"Ask VA to Decide your Claim Now." - for a DRO?

Question

There is a link on Ebenefits that says "Ask the VA to Decide your Claim Now."   Why is that there? Does it do anything for a DRO review?    What happens if I click it or don't click it? 

 

Thanks in advance

I don't see it.  Moreover, that link doesn't make sense, because everyone would be clicking that link.  Furthermore, deciding a claim that isn't fully developed to render a decision isn't VA protocol.

When you submit a claim and the VA posts it on eBenefits, there will be a link that will say Decide the claim now.  If you have everything the YOU can give them for your claim, go ahead and hit it.  It makes it a FDC claim and is supposed to spead it up.  However, if there is any questions or additional information needed from you, it just turns into a normal claim.  I have pressed it and nothing really happens.  My claim was no faster or shorter than others I have had.

Its not for an appeal (DRO review).  That goes normal speed, from what I'm told.

Thank you, I filed an appeal (DRO review) and for some reason that link appears it also says "(reopen)" next to my disabilities claimed (see below - cut and pasted from my ebenny page).  I didn't think this link should appear on a DRO review.  Again, thank you for your time.   

 

  • Submitted: 01/18/2017 (Appeal)
  • Estimated Completion: At this time, your Regional Office is unable to provide an estimated completion date for this type of claim.
  • Disabilities Claimed: right shoulder (Reopen)

Hello Az Arr,

Did you ever find out what it mean by "reopen."  I am doing a DRO appeal as well and mine displays the same thing.  I am pending decision approval and want to make sure my original filing date is preserved.   I know that I got it to them on the last day to submit the appeal.  I am wondering if they will backpay to the original filing date or try to give me my appeal date.  Hopefully you still check this. 

Also, how far along are you?

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
