    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

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.

    • So I've been in a basic power chair (Q6 Edge) since 2015. Late 2016 was also fitted for a TiLite TRA manual (also keeping powerchair). 2017 was approved by Tampa VA for clothing allowance for lower. 

       

      Moved to Battle Creek VA late 2017. Since then was issued new basic powerchair (Quickie P222-SE) to replace broken Q6. Still use TiLite also now can lightly ambulate with Forearm crutches.

      Use crutches 50%, and both chairs 25% each.

      Was approved for 1 clothing allowance this year for forearms crutches for upper.

       

      Was denied 2nd for chair/lower that was awarded last year because Chief Prosthetic states "powerchair takes precedence, you were issued that so you are to use only the powerchair".

      Also powerchair has gap between seat and leg mounts where clothes do get caught and tear. Clinician was I'll put it back in but"power chairs dont get clothing allowances", and "any review or appeal will only come back to me"

      I was approved for powerchair/custom manual combo clothing allowance last year; How do I word an appeal for the lower clothing allowance this year?

      My local DAV rep at the VA has no clue on how to handle this.

    • Thank you.  I’m not exactly sure of how I will file it.  If it is secondary to TBI, would it be pyramiding?
    • I understand what you are saying. Does it sometimes take awhile to update the VA letters and disabilities info online after it closes.....in my case on a Saturday ? Some on other posts on here says no and some say yes so I'm just curious about the inconsistency regarding that if it is yes and no.

      Disability Calculator: Veterans Compensation Rate Calculator

      10 + 50 = 50 and other VA math mysteries explained.

      VA Math It’s Not Your Mother’s Arithmetic “VA Math” is the way that the VA computes combined impairment ratings for multiple conditions in a Veteran’s compensation benefits claim – and it requires that you unlearn real math. When a Veteran has multiple medical conditions that are service connected, and the Veterans Affairs rates each at a different percentage, it would seem that they should just add up your percentages to get to a total body impairment rating. Continue Reading
