It pulls data from the same place that vbms does- that being the system that holds all your claims and the one through which they are all worked. It’s not instantaneous but it does update at least once a day (va.gov, not vbms- vbms is real time)

ebenefits and va.gov are notoriously unreliable and out of  date.  Most Vet advocates never suggest relying upon ebenefits/ va.gov

but instead wait for the envelope.  

I wish I had a buck for everytime my ebenefits/va.gov was:

a.  Inaccurate

b.  Incomplete

c.  Not up to date.

d.  IN conflict with other information.

e.  In conflict with itself.  

f.  Unclear

g.  Ambigious

h. Just plain wrong.  

     Its history is so bad, I rarely check it.  Exception:  

Letters section.  If you can print out a letter that says you are xx percent SC, its probably right.  

VA does not want Veterans running around with official letters that say they are SC when they are not.

Where are you getting this information?

Gentlemen, how accurate is va.gov?

Has anyone received documentation via us mail stating grant, remand, denial, and va.gov says waiting for vlj?

For fun and giggles, I just checked ebenefits. It is normally one of the last VA sites to be updated. I have two appeals at the BVA (Board), one is a Joint remand, and one is a Direct Review. Checking ebenefits there is no status update. Checking va.gov, my joint remand is being reviewed by a Veteran Law Judge and my Direct Review is still sitting waiting to be sent to a judge. So, ebenefits and Va.gov are two different animals and I would say that Va.gov is more accurate because my Joint Remand is more recent because it is a legacy claim/appeal and has more priority.

E- Benefits has been sunsetting for over the last year. About the only thing it still tracks is some legacy appeals. Most everything else is at VA.gov. 

 

Benefits is going away. Don't use it unless something on VA.gov tells you to.

va.gov has a new feature that will let you download your decision directly. Go to where they have made a decision on the claim and there should be a link to read (it actually a download link.) and click on it. I downloaded all of mine the other day going back to 1982.
