Withdraw a claim on ebenefits?

Question

I have a claim pending with a C&P scheduled for Tuesday morning I made a mistake and filed an additional claim on Friday and then got this message on my new claim (#2) about it being consolidated with the other claim:

Important Message About Consolidated Claims

Additionally, to add to my screwups, I accidently uploaded the wrong civilian medical form to this new claim. I see I can add the correct form after the fact but I prefer to just delete the claim and let my original one be processed on it's own. I have been all over ebenefits trying to see how to delete a claim but I dont see how to....any tips? Thanks

I would upload a written statement signed and dated with clarification on your claim and upload it on ebenefits as evidence. Which I was told to do when it’s happened to me and the issue was corrected after uploading it I called the 1800 to make sure it was recieved...

I do not recommend withdrawing the claim.  If you applied twice, dont worry about it and let VARO decide the claim and the effective date.  It wont be the first time that has ever happened.  In short, dont worry about it.   Show up for the C and P exam.  

You can withdraw a claim, but you can not delete it.  

If you need to submit additional evidence, on a different form, simply do that.  If the (previously) uploaded form is inapplicable, then the VARO will simply ignore it.  

Dont get caught up in the symantics, its not your job to cancel claim number one and start another...let the rating specialists do their job.  They have already told you they consolidated the claims into one.  

CAUTION:  Do not submit "conflicting" evidence or testimony.  Your testimony should be consistent...you should not say that your stressor occurred in Vietnam in 1978, but then later say your stressor was in 1983.

    • 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.
