    eBenefits Ratings on Disabilities Page

    The status just indicated that they were processing my election to receive VA compensation instead of any DoD compensation. The status read the same for a few days, but then updated to complete/closed soon after (late JAN). I received my first VA payment 1 MAR (for the month of FEB). DoD paid me...

    Denied SSDI because i'm on AD still.

    Thank you for all of the information. The SS Handbook paints with very broad strokes and does not delve into the specifics of what ailments constitute which types of CEs--only that CEs can be needed and scheduled for 5 categories of reasoning. I suppose my question is too specific to my...

    Denied SSDI because i'm on AD still.

    So, I have been waiting on the SSA's decision since my previous CE, but I just got another phone call today from the SS Office saying that I will now have to go to a Mental CE next month. Is this normal? I made no claims for anything mental. My case is overwhelmingly physical and easily...

    Update: DFAS sent a letter stating that they made a mistake and it was an overpayment. I paid the lump sum back.

    Denied SSDI because i'm on AD still.

    Finished my Social Security Comprehensive Exam (CE). The doctor was very kind and understanding. Now I wonder how long it will take before the SSA/office makes a decision on my case.

    Denied SSDI because i'm on AD still.

    Anyone ever had to see a Chiropractor for their SSA exam? If so, how'd it go? What kinds of tests did they do?

    Denied SSDI because i'm on AD still.

    Got a phone call yesterday that I will need to go to a scheduled exam before my case is decided. Anyone else have experience to share on the SSA ordered exam?

    CRDP Payment w/Less than 20 Years

    I should not be authorized CRDP because I have under 20 years of service depsite being rated 60% (DoD) and 100% (VA) P&T. I opted to receive the VA compensation at the higher/tax-free amount. And yet, for my first compensation payment I received a payment from DFAS for both my 60% DoD retirement...

    new IDES claim in ebenefits

    I did the math myself and figured it out. It looks like they paid me retirement for JAN and then added on top of it what my VA payment would have been in JAN too (CRDP). I have not done 20 years and I am not authorized CRDP as far as I can tell. When I add those two figures it comes to the EXACT...

    new IDES claim in ebenefits

    Weird. DFAS Retropayments says they do not know why I was "credited". They have 7 days to explain or provide an answer. Meanwhile, I've got a check that I should not cash.

    new IDES claim in ebenefits

    No stub came with it to explain the payment. I assume it was a hard-copy check because my direct deposit info is now moved over to the VA for their use. The last direct deposit I got from DFAS was also my sold back leave, final travel voucher pay-out, and the BAH they owed me. Meanwhile, I'm on...

    new IDES claim in ebenefits

    Indeed. But now I'm more confused. I just got a hard-copy check in the mail from DFAS for an amount that is over 2 times more than what my DoD retirement would be. I'm not sure what this is for, but even if they were paying me for JAN and FEB it would still be way too high to be my DoD...

    new IDES claim in ebenefits

    Sadly, DFAS’s phone lines are not working well right now. They are having issues. I get cut off after about 10 seconds of getting someone on the line. Called 8 Times today. Kept getting disconnected. Got nowhere, really.

    I didn't get the physical notification letter/package by mail yet. I believe we are in the same boat though.
