Adkins7B, FYI, my ebenefits was updated as appeal complete. Historical Appeals lists it as closed. No updated SC's. The disabilities I was appealing were IC and GERD. I checked VA.gov and saw thi

That sucks! Sorry they are doing that to you. Mine was at the BVA so the judge granted my 100% TDIU and the RO has to assign the effective date to determine back pay. Dont give up trust me. 21 yrs lat

@adkins7b I was 70% PTSD and 10% Tinnitus. rated in 2013. VA ordered a C&P review done by QTC. It was on 8/16/2018. 8/20 Ebenefits status went to reviewing information 8/21 Pre

So the day yours closed on ebenefits your rating increase changed too. My appeal closed today and my rating remained the same so I guess my appeal was denied : no increase in rating. 

your mileage may vary.

I don't know what you are claiming so it is hard to be specific, but some status changes are more complex than others, and yesterday the VA had more issues than normal with Ebenefits.

Go to the Historical Claims tab and look at each section listed, see if a new one is showing.

If your claim was expected to bump you to 100% go look at your letters, in particular see if there is a Commissary letter. This only appears if you are 100% and since it does not include any dollar amounts it pops up pretty fast.

Look at the Disabilities section, see if new or changed status appear. Say you had a diagnosis of ptsd and major depression before, and they added BiPolar. It might not be obvious at a glance.

call Peggy they will tell you if anything is left to be decided. aka you have a partial decision and which condition is not completed.

a closed "appeal" (as opposed to an original claim at the RO) may be getting a payment higher than normal retro. I think the level is $25k after which more signatures are needed, which takes more time and involves more databases be queried before Ebenefits will actually update.

I'm in the same boat. Bva appeal granted and closed on 6/12/20. Haven't heard or received anything yet. Good luck with yours. 👍

Still nothing here. No update on ebenefits or a letter. Maybe today will be my lucky day...doubtful though. I figured if ebennies doesnt update today, then come the 1st, it will still be the same then also. How many times can a person check that site a day...HUNDREDS lol. Good luck.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • 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,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
