    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

Not able to log into Ebenefits


Question

I haven't been able to log into my ebenefits account for the last month. I called someone and they said my first name wasn't in there and my last name was spelled differently. How could this happen? i've been logging into there for over a year. they said to fax a cover sheet to some place and they would cal me. I faxed the information to the number I was given but haven't heard back yet.

anyone know a number I can call to talk with a person to get this fixed? I would really like to get this fixed and cannot understand how my information could have been changed.

Anyone else ever had this happen to them?

Ronc531 This is a good example of the inaccuracies and inconsistencies of ebenefits. Call Peggy again and ask for it to be corrected. You can also go to VA.gov and under "contact us" try there. Also scout around in ebenefits and see if your profile/personal info has been compromised somehow and try to correct.

Great question.  Before you begin a fight with VA, try this:

CLEAR YOUR COOKIES.  Delete everything.  Why?  Well, maybe, just maybe you had a typo in the past and it got saved on your computer.  So, when ever you start typing, it puts in the incorrect verstion because of "auto fill in".  That has happened to me with other things. 

Ok, now lets say what I posted, above, isnt the problem and you cleaned up your computer cookies and auto fill in and its still the same problem.  (If you try to log in on a different computer and it works, then you know what I posted above is the problem).  

Here is where to start fixing it:

1.  Try your VAMC libriarian.  Yes.  That was the person who authenticated my ebenefits premium account which had to be "in person" authentication.  

2.  If that doesnt work, try emailing IRIS and tell them of your problem. 

3.  If that doesnt work, contact the white house hotline.  

4.  You may get some help from your VSO, but dont count on that!!!

If your VSO is a computer nerd then this may work.  You really need an advocate WHO IS A NERD or knows a nerd.  Im "sort of" a nerd, but not a full fledged nerd.  My oldest son, however, is a NERD.  He is a computer programmer for Android (Android developer).  He does not know the difference between a 9/16 box end wrench and a "box" of wrenches.

Sometimes important information gets misaligned.  I had this happen to my deers information, my birthdate changed somehow.  I had to go to a deers office to change it back with a birth certificate in tow.  Remember computers are run by people and people make mistakes.

    • 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.
