Claim I did not file added to my in process?


Earthshatter

Question

I recently had a C&P that closed which awarded 50% for PTSD and non service connected for left shoulder which put me at 90% overall. I also received an email from my attorney stating that the DRO was going to grant the two items I appealed which was service connection for sleep apnea and increased % on migraines. I now have a claim listed as “comp and pen” in my status menu that lists every disability I am currently connected for as well as my Voc Rehab and my dependents, but I did not file anything else recently and certainly didn’t reopen everything.  Anyone experienced this before or have any idea of why it was put in that way? Thanks in advance.

The DRO does have the ability to open a claim to review you conditions.  This may just be a formality or the DRO might want to have you go in for another C&P to make sure how back each condition is.  I have seen a few people on here who have had a claim opened for them, but never applied.  You will just have to wait and see how it plays out.

The VA is supposed to quality check decisions made.  Your claim may have been one of these and the DRO has decided your claim was not fully developed.  I wish you well and hope you can get everything you deserve.

So it appears it was the DRO doing a review, the claim was closed and my percentage changed to 100 on ebenefits, but the line on the benefit summary for permanent and total still states no. Will have to wait for the letter in the mail to see exactly what is going on I suppose.
