not really ebennies anymore but VA.gov

i am trying to file new claims through the site. i guess i could have gone to my VSO to file the claims but i had all the paper work needed for my claim and just wanted to get it done.

so long story went through the system and went to submit a claim and got this:



We’re sorry. Some information in your application is missing or not valid.

Please check each section of your application to make sure you’ve filled out all the information that is required.


anyone know what this means? there is nothing to indicate what i am missing or what is "not valid" when i go back through all the questions. i am lost. HELP!!!

You have to love those error messages that tell you where your error is and how to fix it.  Without looking at your application we cannot help much.  Go through the document again and look to see if any of the required information is missing.  It is tedious and time consuming but it is the only way to do it.

I don't believe they can see claims you have started, only ones that have been submitted. Vetquest is correct, without seeing your screens we cannot tell you where the possible error is. As much as I know you won't like this answer, I would suggest you go back through and make sure there are no boxes that need a response even a if it is a "N/A". Sometimes boxes need something even when we are not needing them.

I prefer filing online because it is much faster and usually easier to file, but when something goes wrong it can be a pain to fix it.

Are you able to just start a new claim? It might be the easiest way to fix the problem. Good luck!

Shrek the last time I started a claim it was on VA.gov.

Last time I filled it out I tried it from there, but it kicked me back to Ebenefits to finish the claim.  I could be totally wrong as that was almost a year ago.

    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

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

    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
