Help please! I’m driving myself crazy. I filed for 3 secondary disabilities on 9/30/20. After my C&P exams, I got a random deposit on 11/19…which I didn’t see until after ebennies updated (see * note below) …Checked my claim, and it granted me 50% on one of the 3, but the other 2 were deferred. A few days later, I checked it, and it said those 2 were not service connected- HOWEVER, somehow it had ” (increase)” listed next to all of my contentions, with a notice for me to complete my TDIU form. I never even requested TDIU or the increases- That all came from them. I had 2 subsequent C&P exams. I checked va.gov and the claim closed 2/16/21 (last C&P was 2/4).. Ive been checking ebennies like I had in previous claims, but nothing. No change. No deposits. Nada. I’ve checked letters, ratings and I don’t see anything new. If I was granted TDIU, will there be a separate letter? Will be usual benefit letter still look the same with my scheduled ratings?
I know it’s the VA and you can’t count on much but Ive always had a deposit within 7 days (and today is only 3 days)- but would it make logical sense for THEM to initiate a TDIU claim AND increases that I didn’t personally file for, if they weren’t confident I would be approved for one of them?
* with this last increase (from the 1of3 secondary claims approved), I had been checking ebennies 11/19 :11 a.m. 11/20 : 3 p.m. 11/21 11 a.m., and at about 615pm – I checked it again about 7:30 p.m. and it was there. That means it updated on a Saturday evening which I thought was crazy in itself.
