I filed a request for reconsideration in Sept of 2011. On e-benefits it has stated gathering of evidence until today. Now they are saying preparing for decision. Glad to know they are working on the reconsideration, and it is not just sitting in a pile growing moss! Retiree here, still waiting for retro since Oct. 2011. Maybe after this decision we will see money in the bank. Hope all cases are being worked in a timely fashion. Thanks to all for your service.
