I think I know what my problem is.
My NARSUM has 4 unfitting conditions, the top 3 all individually warrant 100% disability according to the VA tables. My specialty doctors were very precise in documenting these issues quantitatively and clearly.
Well, I called the VA earlier tonight to inquire about my status...they read me the report they sent to AFPC...they only gave me 30%...their table of service related conditions never even mentioned any of the top four issues.
The guy on the phone at the VA thought I was crazy because he had no idea what I was talking about.
They only rated the little little stuff like migraines 30%, scars 10%, TBI 0%, PTSD 0%, retina injury 0%, nerve damage 0%, crushed finger 0%...etc.
Even though the main issues were at the top of my NARSUM, the VA didn't even ID them with 0%.
These are definitely service related conditions...stuff they happened to me in Afghanistan in 2004, 2005 and 2008.
The VA doc and my military PCM said my case was very obvious when working with me earlier this year because all my specific conditions are documented very well..oh well. I guess I'll have to appeal once I finally see my 356.
Only? Lol, 15 referred is a huge number; even 15 total is larger than average.Seems like they are pretty fast but I STILL HAVENT SEEN MINE!!!! GRRRRRR. I check E-benefits daily and its stuck in review of evidence. I only had 15 referred conditions.

You should be seeing something soon! You might Lao already be done, and ebenefits is not being updated
Well after calling the 1 800 number a few times I got a representative who was helpful and told me I was missing my bank info and the dependent info form. (MY PEEBLO NEVER TOLD ME ANYTHING). So I faxed it directly to the RI office. Now let's see how long it takes. KEEPING MY FINGERS CROSSED
So, my claim went to the VA Sep 1. Been in review of evidence since then. Claim started at Eglin, Got moved to Hurby for duty. But all PEB issues still at Eglin. Most frustrating part is there is no guidance on timeframes and or status updates... Any advice please
Well Providence must be moving along. The VA had my case December 12, 2013. My ebenefits was at Gathering Evidence for a long time and changed to Review of Evidence two weeks ago. Today it jumped to Waiting Decision Approval! So can anybody tell me the time table from here? Thanks!
