Just another Denial
Well here's the latest update ! So I check the eBenefit website the other day and found that my claim had been closed as of 10/8/15. Also, under disability heading it shows "not service connected. So I email Ted Ebert to seek an explanation. His reply was, Please don't be alarmed - the closed claim is really just the closure of our tracking of our response to your request for a copy of your claims folder... Then he says, " Your regional office recently completed a Statement of the Case - on your appeal - please read it carefully as it contains specific instructions on what happens next. Ted
So sure enough yesterday I received the Statement of Case. It appears that I now have the choice to appeal to the Board of Veteran Appeals (BVA)
I wrote Ted back and told him that we were a bit confused and asked him to offer some further clarification. So now we'll wait to see what he has to say.
Just another day in the life a Vet being drug across some very hot coals !!!
