Quick Turn Around in E-Benefits


Have a question. I submitted a claim in E-Benefits for secondary for both my left hip and left foot (due to left discrepancy), which is SC. The plantar fasciitis in my foot was diagnosed by the VA and my hip was diagnosed by a civilian doctor. I uploaded all my VA medical and personal doctors medical evaluation and documents along with a copy of my service medical records. My question is why this was done so fast as my initial claim was put into E-Benefits on  08/02/2017 and now I see its already in the "Preparation for Notification" phase. Also under disabilities claimed it states "mqas review - recoupment adjustment (New)".  I did get an SSB payment when I left the service that I have been paying back for years now. My question is this seems too fast for the VA.....and not a good sign.

Was this an FDC claim?

Update: My original claim (FDC) was a formal claim for secondary conditions of “Arthritis Due to Strain” in both my left foot and left hip caused by my service-connected condition “left leg length discrepancy”, which is rated at 0 percent. My left leg length discrepancy and pelvic tilt has played a role in either causing or aggravating my diagnosed trochanteric bursitis of the left hip. I have been scheduled for a C&P exam for the 6th of Sept at the VA in Martinsburg.

When I looked in E-Benefits I saw a new claim opened. Actually the VA opened a new claim to review my SSB recoupment and make some kind of adjustment. The closed the claim and have sent me a notification package (which I have not received as of yet).

So as it stands now I will undergo the C&P exam this week.

So I received a notification package today regarding the review on my SSB Recoupment. My recoupment was supposed to end November 2019 at which time I was to start reviving benefits December 2019 (30 percent). Apparently the VA miscalculated my SSB recoupment and now have advised me, after their review, recoupment will be finished November 2017. I will start receiving benefits in December. That was great news. Now for the C&P in the am.......

    • 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:
