  • 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 in the world? Not available, no longer needed?

Question

Hey all. I have 2 claims, a RAMP appeal and a new one for conditions the RAMP appeal evolved into. There wasn't a whole lot of movement. On my RAMP I had a C&P on 1/31 that basically proved my new claim moreso than what it was actually for, and then yesterday on my new one a "Request 3, exam request processing" popped up and then an hour later went to "Request 3 closed. No longer needed. Date: Not available"

 

Err.. so do I have pending appointments or did they review my other evidence? I only ask because I am supposed to be moving from PA to WV and I have been trying to hold off until exams, if needed, are done. If they don't need them anymore, I know I have extensive records provided and would be wanting to move ASAP. I didn't want to jump off of my sinking ship until they had everything they needed, if that makes sense. So what does the no longer needed thing mean? Is it as obvious as it sounds and they don't need another exam? 

 

DAV guy 1 said I had pending exams,  DAV guy 2 said nope, you're good on exams. Errr... anyone have this happen? And if it matters, there are DBQ's on file as well.

 

Thanks

Dont base your decision to move on a ebenefits note!!!  Ebenefits is exceptionally unreliable.

Hang in there, for a while, at least.  You dont want to move in the Winter cold, anyway, unless you absolutely have to.  

You do have the right idea, tho:  Keep VA aware of your address, and make sure you dont miss c and p exams.

I would call the 1-800-827-1000 number and see if they will shed any light on this.  Then I would contact your closest VA hospital and talk to the people setting up C&P's.

Thanks all. I will call the VA hospital and the 800 #.  It's so weird, the one guy (DAV) said the it was LHI exams or something like that, and then the other rep called back and said "nah, you're good".  It's so confusing because a lot of times it will say processing or awaiting review. I haven't actually had "no longer needed" before lol. Looks like I have some calls to make. Thanks all!

I still have 2 appeals pending..and, if/when they ever get completed, I will be able to figure out "how much money" taking the advice of a VSO cost me.  It will be in the thousands of dollars.  

I would have been money ahead to hire an attorney from the get-go and pay the 20 percent.  Its much better than 0 percent.

    • Help needed bad  Male MST
      Is there anything for a man who's been diagnosed with PTSD secondary to MST. I see all this information and it's primarily speaking as if it only happened to females. If anybody has any advice for a man who suffers from this condition please let me know I'm not alone. Also let me know of any coping skills you've learned as I have lived the last 25-30 years of my life in full flight from reality.

    • It's now May 3 3019. Still pending for notification and past estimated completion date April 29th. If it were negative would o would have heard something right. I'm assuming I have a good chance because I have evidence, however the wait is killing me like everyone else.

    • Man using HadIt name to collect funds -  Go FundMe shuts down campaign following Raleigh man's arrest for fraud
      I was interviewed for  this story. This gentlemen was using the HadIt name to collect funds for some non existent charity. "HadIt.com" is NOT a non-profit. "HadIt.com" will never have anyone collecting outside of Walmarts. If "HadIt.com" does not list a fundraiser on our site it is not affiliated with us. Please read the story and pass on that this person is NOT affiliated with "HadIt.com"

      Note: The text at the top of the video lists me as a nonprofit founder. HadIt.com is a for profit, it is not a non profit and this man is not associated with our site and none of the money he collected had anything to do with our site.
