  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Where to find the phone number for eBenefits

Question

Can anyone please tell me where to find the phone number to eBenefits?  The status of my appeal hasn't been updated since a month ago.  Has anyone else noticed the same thing?  I would like to ask them how often they update and why mine hasn't been done.  Thank you in advance for any help as it's greatly appreciated and best wishes to everyone!

You're relying on E-Ben for timely Appeals Updates?  That's a questionable decision in itself. Someone told you, or you read somewhere, that you can contact E-Ben by phone? What's your source?

Contact your POA-VSO and request he accesses your C-File and sees what's going on.

Now, how about posting a redacted copy of your Denial, so we can get a grip on your appeal situation. When did you file your Claim and subsequent NOD? What type of VA Appeal Route did you choose, BVA, DRO Review or DRO Hearing?

You can always call 800-827-1000 (Peggy) for an update.  Ebennies isn't a reliable site honestly because both Ebennies and Vet.gov don't really update often.  Do you have a rep for your appeals?  I would first call them if you do.

Gastone,

Wow, I wasn't looking to be insulted...just was looking for a phone number to possibly speak with their IT people.  Obviously, if I'm asking for help on this forum, my attorney wasn't able to provide the answer I'm seeking as to why my status hasn't been updated.  My appeal is in an expedited status (it's not a remand) so I was just looking for any info. that would help explain the delay in decision since the judge started working it in the first part of March.  Next time, if you can't find it within yourself to reply more respectfully to a fellow brother or sister-in-arms, please don't reply at all because between my medical issues and being homeless, a demeaning attitude is the last thing I need right now.

D, didn't intend to step on your feelings. Based on your above posting, more info is always better than less, it's clear now that you're certainly not new to the VA Claims and Appeals system. The fact that your Appeal (VA lawyer POA) is at the BVA, were you really expecting your E-Ben Account to have BVA Updates?      Your POA-VA Lawyer Has Direct  Computer access to your C-file and obviously all BVA Documents and requests for additional Medical Evidence, he's your go-to guy for movement Status, especially on an  Appeal that's been granted an "Advancement on the Docket." Your former VSO-POA is out of the Appeal picture.      I still have to ask, who told you or where did you read, that your E-Ben Site would carry BVA Appeals movement up-dates.info?      Especially after sharing your current situation, the last thing you need is someone pointing you in the wrong direction for information. Demeaning was not my intent, however, wasting one's time chasing E-Ben for accurate updates by any Vet, is ill-advised.  Good Luck with your Appeal!

G,

My appeal has been being updated on eBenefits ever since it arrived at the BVA in January but for some reason has stopped updating as of June 4th.  I never had any other representation other than my current atty whom I retained right after my first denial 4 yrs. ago.  He checks every day for updates in VACOLS and there haven't been any on there either.  Was really trying to figure out if they update the entire site at once or only cases that have had any movement.  My case is pretty cut and dry with indisputable evidence which is another reason why I'm confused as to why it's taking so long to render a decision.

    • 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.
