My enbennies status just moved to Preparation for decision. The PEB has already found me unfit but awaiting percentages from DRAS. how long after 'prep for decision" does the PEB actually get and move on the ratings?
From my personal experience, Prep for Decision meant that a VA rater was assigned to my claim and actively working it. A few days later, my status went to Pending Decision Approval, indicating that my rating proposal was forwarded back to the PEB. These status updates and their implications were verified by the VA.
Hello all, just to give you some hope, I received my Unfit memo 12 January 2015, I got my proposed ratings yesterday (6 March) with my DA 199, (Board Convened 4 March), 10% Army, 60% VA, I agreed and my PEBLO told me I should hear something this week from transition, she also gave me the number to call transitions, they told me that I could get my "No later than" date this week, with my leave I would potentially start clearing the week after next.
Yeah when you first log into ebennies on the main page under "Manage Benefits" there is a icon that says VA letters. Click that and then under step 2 click either Benefit Summary or Benefit Verification. That should show you your disability %.
tony292- I called the VA today to see about mine that still sits in "prep for decision." The lady who I talked to said mine was actually already and was awaiting a second signature. She refused to tell me what my proposed rating was though.
"We are unable to locate records in VA files indicating eligibility for the VA letters that are currently provided in this on-line service. Please call the National Call Center at 1-800-827-1000 if you need additional information"
The VA doesn't always upload documentation to be viewable through the "VA Letters" page, at least not while in IDES. I've received my ratings already and on ebenefits there are no VA Letters. I get the same message as MissKac.
