  • 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

What happened to my Dependent award>


This morning, I checked ebenefits and it was still at waiting for decision approval. I just checked it again and now it says, "Prep for notification." So I decided to check

my awards and it stayed the same at 90 percent with the award date of 2015. I then checked my dependent award and it has disappeared. It now lists my dependent but it said, "dependent not on award" where they use to be on it. So my question is, did I get denied? Awarded but ebennies not updated yet, and what happened to my dependents? I'm confused. Can anyone shed a light on this?

I respond to ebenfits questions with the same "enthusiasm" that I would give to the opinion of my next door neighbor, who happens to be 5 years old.  

Take what ebenefits says with a grain of salt, dont count on anything and wait for the real decision.  Many volunteers, like myself, dont usually respond to "How long does it take VA to **________________?"

And, I dont usually specualte on what some unreliable ebenefit clerk had in mind when they changed the status of ebenefits.  

At least one well known Vets advocate recommends not checking ebenefits.  

So, there you have it.  Toss a coin in the air. 

If its heads, it probably means ebenefits is wrong.  

If its tails, it probably means ebenefits is really wrong. 

If the coin lands on edge, then there is a 4 percent chance ebenefits is correct.

Glad you asked this question Fourpaws because the same thing happened to me this week and it freaked me out. Dependents suddenly vanished from my award at the PFN stage and stayed gone for about two days or so.

However, my claim was marked complete two days later, and my dependents reappeared on my award. I'm guessing that Ebenefits was simply being updated by whomever to reflect my increased %. 

Was your claim ever completed Fourpaws, or it still bouncing back and forth? Hope everything worked out in your favor!

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,
