have you started the New Claim for "Increase" on your E-Ben site yet? June 1st is next week, don't drag your feet. Do you work with a POA-VSO? If so, have them file the New Claim.

Try to get your claim "delivered to your VARO" before June 1.  Why?  Well, assuming you eventually get the increase your effective date will be the date you applied (with some exceptions).  This means you lose a whole month's pay waiting until AFTER June 1 to apply.  That is about 3000 dollars for 100 percent Vets.  

Would you drive to your VARO for about $2000?  Remember you are service connected and the money you already get will be deducted from your retro. 

This is not the date you mail it, its the date VARO receives it.

J2, if the wheels fall off your car, the buses aren't running, Uber's shut down, you could go on your e-Ben site and file the Increase FDC today. Just logging in and beginning the CLAIM would get you in under the 06/01/2018 Filing Wire. 

If you don't have access to your E-Ben site, for whatever reason, just call your POA-VSO and request that they File for The Increase this afternoon, you don't have to be there, that's what the POA is all about.

I agree with Gastone and broncovet

Yon mention  ''Just received the medical paperwork today. Will file for an increase in the next 5 days with the VSO 

This was on the 25th...so 5 days from then will be the  30th  cutting it close

Try to do file today if you possibly can.

  file an INT (intent to file FDC) This will give you more time to gather evidence if you need it and start your EED Clock

    • Type 1 Diabetes recent onset!
      I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in September 2017 OUT OF NOWHERE.

      i am a Navy Reservist and deployed in later 2009 to mid 2010 and again later 2014 to mid 2015; had a 2 year recall between those deployments.  

      Only healthcare received since commissioning in 2008 was from the Navy and no issues EVER.

      insulin dependent and have dietary restrictions and in a non deployable status.

      VA denied initial claim due to Type 1 not showing on active duty and now appealing.

      Anyone with successful experience getting a rating with my circumstances?  I live in Upstate New York.

    • Agent Orange Kadena Afb Okinawa
      I am looking for anyone who was on Kadena AFB, Okinawa or .Chanute AFB, IL. My dad was there from Oct. 68-April 70. He has ichemic heart disease, diabetes which has resulted in the amputation of his right leg below the knee and peripheral neuropathy. We were denied in 2002 AMVETS filed a claim on his behalf for heart condition, diabetes and back problems. I refiled in December 2011 and have just received the claim statements and medical release forms. I am familiar with filling out this paper work because my husband is a combat veteran of Iraqi Freedom. I have been reading articles from the Japan times and I am a member of the Agent Orange Okinawa facebook page. Another thing that helps make my dad's case is that he was on Chanute AFB, IL and it is on the EPA Superfund list and has PCBs/Pesticides and Dioxins/Furans listed as ground and water contaminants. I welcome any advice, tips or articles that I may have missed in my own research.

    • Appeal granted and closed.
      My appeal was granted and closed on November 9.  I got an unofficial notification from the DAV on November 15 stating "appeal granted with an evaluation of 30%" which is great!  My question is this:  How long until I get the official notification from the va? Nothing on ebennies has updated since the appeal closed. Appeal is now in historical and just says complete and at originating va office. I understand no one knows va timelines to a tee but a general timeline would be great.  Thank you all! Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

       

      Edit:  This was my first time appealing and it was a VBA grant.
