I need to seriously seek help due to daily checking ebenefits for a status change. I know I know, its like watching paint dry. I did take a peek this morning and noticed that I have a message. Now, I know iknow, I may be looking too deeply into this but has anyone else received the follwing message from ebenefits?

Just stop yourself - walk outside and watch the grass either growing or sweltering,
as for now you will actually see something happening.

YES - you are analyzing and looking way "too deeply", it is just standard boiler plate info to all.

Nothing has happened yet.

Under Access My Documents on ebenefits.

I think dean is referring to the Benefit Verification Form (AB8) - which WHEN they make a decision on your claim this form might show the change before you are notified by mail.
This form will usually be found above the form that you have indicated was already there = Service Verification Form (AB7).

I know it's hard not to keep checking ebenefits for some movement, I wasted enough time doing so the first year of my claim and it is STILL in the Review of Evidence Phase, but as Carlie suggested try to keep yourself busy with other things. I now only check it once a week or if I submitted/requested something to see if it has been received - gives me something to look forward to and is not as frustrating for me.

Thank you for the heads up guys. It is in fact the AB7 letter here. I have noticed that "ePeggy" (lolol this is so funny to me) has been piddling on my account. I noticed that my Estimated completion date has moved forward by 6 months. I know Iknow. It doesnt mean anything. Posted Image
