Original claim is still 'Pending Decision Approval', new claim is 'Complete'

My surgeon initiated my MedBoard on 11 July, 2018. My original claim from 11 July, 2018 had an estimated completion date of 7 July, 2019 on eBenefits. However, on 31 December that date changed to 16 May, 2019. Now, I looked yesterday and saw that I had a historical claim which I had never seem before. This new claim was initiated on 3 October, and completed 31 December (the same day my date changed to 16 May). eBenefits gives me no information when I open the completed claim. I spoke with a VA rep from the 1-800 line, and she was unhelpful (as they usually are), but she did say that the VA is done with my claim. If that is the case, why then is my original claim still open, and why did the date change? Should I be looking in the mail for my proposed rating? Also, how long after I get my proposed rating, should the Marine Corps notify me of separation?

Thanks in advance!!

CORRECTION: My estimated completion date for my original claim was 7 January, 2019 not 7 July, 2019.

BlaketheCommGuy, this happened to me during my MEB process. The original was closed and I never received information. My assumption is the "new" claim is generated in support of the IPEB process. Once you sign all of your papers and are briefed by PEBLO, then the item will go historical and you can see the rating in cBenefits. As stated on this forum in the past eBenefits is not made to support the IDES/MEB/IPEB process and is only a bellwether and an indicator. All official info comes from PEBLO and official forms.
