HI All,

I just checked ebenefits and my claim went from Gathering of Evidence to Prep for Decision.

I submitted intent to file on 8/2016, submitted my fully developed claim with all records and diagnosis needed on 7/2017, had a C&P for re-evaluation for Asthma, Sleep Apnea, Bronchiecstatis, Restrictive Lung Diesease, Aspergilliosis on 7/19/2017 at QTC, had another C&P for Mental Health (Anxiety) on 8/9/2017 at QTC.

Today, 9/1/17, it was changed to Prep for Decision.

I just wanted to share the update on my claim with my fellow vets, since this website has helped me a lot and there a lot of good people helping vets here.

Granted it was a re-eval from 60% SC to ???, I think It has been moving pretty fast, just hope that the actual decision phase comes soon.

Thank you!


jfrei, no I do not, I have been told that it is a bit harder to get the C&P report from QTC. I was going to wait until they made a decision but I am not sure if that would make a difference in the process.

request in writing that your requesting a copy per FOIA and see what they say I waited a week and received a copy one from QTC and one from VES... I covered my grounds I went to the release of information at the hospital so they called for me and found andtold me to go to the regional office the gentleman said I couldn't if I have a claim or appeal pending. I laughed an appeal pending the date  on its from 2012 its not going anywherehe laughed said come back next week. I then also made a copy of the letter submitted it through ebenefits and put my mailing address SSN what I was requesting into the claim still open. I then called the next day said it would take 30 days. But someone working on my claim I guess say the request in the mail two weeks later I had a copy in the mail. Im not saying that my OCD didn't piss allot of people off pisses my wife allot I waste allot of useless time pondering what ifs until I get help.... But I have both copies now

    • 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:
