  • 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

Ebenefits Appeals Update


So, last Tues. I logged in to ebenefits and saw they had sent me an SOC for my appeal. My appeal then moved to "Your form 9 has been received we are gathering ...to send to BVA". Anyway, I called the 800# where a kind man told me to keep checking ebenefits and wait to go to the DAV as more information on how to proceed should be updated soon.

I checked today and it said "APPEAL CLOSED" in my disabilities it showed no changes and the two issues I am appealing "Not service connected", which it has stated since I filed the claim in 4/2015. 

I decided to check VA.GOV.

It shows my appeal is complete and BOTH issues have been granted. However, they are listed under "stomach hernia and bladder injury"

(Neither of these are listed in E-benefits). It says I will have to wait 1-2 months if there is to be a change in my disability rating...


Will this information be in the SOC ebenefits said they were sending earlier in the week?

Your SOC will tell you where your case stands.  I am not sure what you mean about an appeal unless you have appealed an SOC and there was a DRO review.  Remember that ebenefits and vets.gov can be unreliable.

Yes, I appealed the original SOC that stated I was not service connected. That was back in 2015. My case was transferred from St. Pete VRO in June of this year to Fargo VRO. I spoke with the case manager in August who set up another C&P, which I completed on Nov. 11th. Ebenefits on Tues. said "Appeal Pending - Statement of Case" and another blurb receiving my form 9 and about sending documents to the BVA (I posted about this earlier in the week). 

Thurs. I called Peggy who told me to hang tight for my VA letter and call them again in a week or so if I had not received an update.

When I logged in the ebenefits to see if there was an updated letter I saw "Appeal Complete". No letter or updated SC.

So, I logged into VA.gov, which said


Current Status

The Veterans Benefits Administration granted your appeal

The Veterans Benefits Administration agreed with you and decided to overturn the original decision. If this decision changes your disability rating or eligibility for VA benefits, you should see this change made in 1 to 2 months.

It also says, "Appeal of your December 2015 Claim Decision - Granted"

Now I have to wait to find out what their actual decision is...

    • 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.
