I separated from the U.S. Navy on October 10, 2016. I submitted a va claim on March 29, 2018. I have already attended all of my appointments, and submitted all of the required documents. Today as I was checking the status of my claim on ebenefits, I saw my VA disability verification letter. The letter stated that my combined evaluation was at 60%. However, according to the benefits, the my claim is still being reviewed, and I haven’t received any official letter by mail. The letter also stated that I would be receiving $1,182.52, with the effective date of disability as December 1, 2017
Question #1:Is there any chance that this number will change?
Question #2:Is $1,182.52 the correct amount for a 60% rating with spouse and child?
Question #3:If my claim was submitted within 12 months of separation, shouldn’t the effective date be the 1st day of the month after I separated?
