Va.gov vs Ebennefits.gov Updates on BVA appeal?

Years ago I filed a BVA PTSD appeal which was update as follows:

Disability compensation appeal updated on June 4, 2019
Status: The Board made a decision on your appeal

Issue on appeal: Service connection, Post-traumatic stress disorder
Submitted on: September 20, 20160
View details

In the view details section, it was a C&P remand request.

On August 98th, 2019 the C&P was conducted and the exam information (DBQ or C&P ???) was sent to the local (Oakland California RO) for review.  I expect another year or two before I hear anything.

My question is: 
VA.gov still shows the claims as GREEN and not closed but a decision being made.  Since Ebennie's shows nothing other than an AB8 letter showing not service connected from years ago, will VA.gov update or will Ebennies update with whatever decision is ultimately made from this point forward?


Thank You

They will both update... VA.Gov will update when a decision is made and it will show closed

Ebenfits will update as well but unless the rating changes or a new one is added, you may not see an update.. in other words if the rating does not change you will see nothing new

You should get a decision letter most likely before these sites are updated to inform/ask you if you want to continue your appeal

Hi Pete,

I did a letter from the BVA judge that ruled in favor of service connection (see below) .  It's my understanding that my file is now back at the Regional Office to determine a percentage..if any?  
This is the meat and potatoes of that specific decision: 
These matters come before the Board of Veterans' Appeals (Board) on appeal from a July 2018 rating decision by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Regional Office (RO). 
After the SOC was issued in May 2019, VA treatment records and a private DBQ and medical opinion pertinent to the Veteran's headache claim were associated with the claims file. However, as the claim of entitlement to service connection for headaches, to include as secondary to service-connected tinnitus, is being granted, and that is a full grant of the benefit sought on appeal as to that issue, the Board finds no prejudice with proceeding with the adjudication of that claim.

Interestingly, the Regional office is also in possession of what seems to be a favorable C&P for PTSD, that was ordered by a BVA judge via remand.  I'm wondering if the RO is looking at both the Headache & PTSD claims in conjunction with my current service connected hearing loss & tinnitus to determine a combined service connection percentage?

Thank you for your reply.

OK great, now that BVA has granted your claims, the RO should be Calculating your payment.  You know, your new rating, what they paid you and what they owe you. Almost time for the happy dance  💃💃

    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?”

    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
