Question

Hi Everyone

I posted this morning asking about the completion date, and I just saw that now my case has been closed. Seeing that it's closed could I call the 800 number and find out what the outcome is  or can I have the law firm that representing me find out or do I just wait.

You can check on ebennies on your disabilities page, or by VA summary/benefits letters. Some people try and call Peggy, but I don't think they do that over the phone. Hope the news is positive for you!

scooter318 Peggy is what we affectionately call the VA info line on claims. 800-827-1000. Take whatever they tell you with a grain of salt; it is verbal and some reps are much better in getting accurate info to you.

Peggy will not tell you the outcome of your claim, they will tell you to wait for your letter.  If you have a VSO or lawyer though they should be able to access VBMS and tell you the status though.

Is this a new claim or a existing claim ? The reason I ask is if you already a claim open (a new claim) and you open another, usually what will happen is they will close your most recent claim and "combine" it with the other.

    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.
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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
