I searched high and low for an answer to this question, and I figured other veterans might be curious if anyone knows the answer, too. When the VA schedules you for a reevaluation of your already service-connected compensable disability, one of the possibilities is the VA could draw the conclusion that your condition has improved and propose a reduction. For that process, the VA is required to notify you of the proposal (this will be by mail, most likely) and afford you time to respond. However, my question is this: most of us use eBenefits to track the status of our claims. When our claim moves to “complete,” we go to the “disabilities” tab to see the percentage or check out the VA Letters (i.e., VB8) to see percentages, compensation amounts, total and permanent status, etc. This is usually a week or two ahead of the letter arriving in the mail.
Question: If your claim moves to “complete” in eBenefits, and the VA decision is a -proposed- rating reduction, will the percentages change in eBenefits? or the Letter Language? Will a new claim appear that says “proposal for reduction” or something similar? Just curious what eBenefits looks like when your claim moves to complete and the VA decision is a reduction.
eBenefits is unofficial, of course. 🙂
