  • Trouble Remembering? This helped me.

    I have memory problems and as some of you may know I highly recommend Evernote and have for years. Though I've found that writing helps me remember more. I ran across Tom's videos on youtube, I'm a bit geeky and I also use an IPad so if you take notes on your IPad or you are thinking of going paperless check it out. I'm really happy with it, I use it with a program called Noteshelf 2.

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

I'm waiting on my cover letter for my claim 05/06/2019 and to expect a decision letter this week

@31BHayes

That's Great! I hope you get what you are seeking and the back pay. If you have not read it elsewhere, a lot of veterans get their back pay before their letter even shows up.

I would also suggest that you go to Ebennies and look under the documents section. There is an odd Quirk in the system is that some of the Documents generate even before you get back pay or the BBE.

In particular if you are rated at 100%, even TDIU 100%, the Commissary letter will generate because it does not include any payment information. So will the CHAMPVA letter and the Status letter you give to people that does not include rated conditions or pay.

So while you do have to wait, checking those letters on Ebennies can be the most reliable method of gleaning info before the BBE arrives.

Check your E-Benefits and see if it has updated info.  You can usually get an idea of what the decision was based on the entries there.

My VA claim is in preparation for decision phase but my estimated completion date went from 06/18/2019 to 08/01/2020. What in the world does this indicate? Why so long all of a sudden. Very confused.

@John R

sad to say it only indicates stuff we will never know about until we know about it.

the completion dates are estimates and really mean the VA does not want to commit to a specific date.

Things that could change it  include, but are not limited too, workload, complexity of decision, the need for another C&P, that the payout for back pay will be higher than the local can authorize, or a hundred other things.

I just had a C&P and the date on Vets.gov was Oct 22nd, today it moved to Oct 23rd. This is a no brainer claim so the date that far out is a bit weird.

All we can do is wait.

sorry that is not much help
