    Important:

    All the old articles that had been at hadit.com can now be found here VA Claims and Benefits Information

    Getting all the posts over to the new format will take some time. We are starting this transition on Jan 1, 2024. As we process through this the best way to find information is to use our search.

    This will fold all of HadIt.com into the Community Eco System which will add value to the members and guests and cut our monthly expenses.

      Everything Veterans Affairs does with your service connected disability compensation claim, is goverened by law. You may want to bookmark this page as a reference as you proceed with your claim.

Just remember the U.S.C. is the law, the C.F.R. is how they interpret the law and last but certainly not least is the V.A. adjudication manuals that is how they apply the law. The section of the law that covers the veterans benefits is Title 38 in the U.S.C. in the C.F.R. is usually written 38 C.F.R. or something similar.

    21. VA Scandals

      Shreddergate and other scandals

      On the 13th of October, 2008, VA Watchdog dot Org broke the story about documents found in shredder bins at the VA's Detroit Regional Office.

      A number of those documents were critical to veterans' disability claims.

      As the story unfolded, VA finally began to release information on the incident and we learned that more than one Regional Office was involved in this shredder scandal.

      The VA's Office of Inspector General (VAOIG) is investigating.

      VA has instituted new guidelines regarding handling of documents.

    34. How to's on filing a Claim

      This for instructional purposes to direct you on how to file your claim. When we were in the service they told you when to get up, when to eat, what weapon you were going to use, and where to go. 

      When you got out no one told you how to deal with the VA and how to file for the benefits that you earned by your service. 

      This section of the forum I have been wanting to set up for just this reason

    • Good question.   

          Maybe I can clear it up.  

          The spouse is eligible for DIC if you die of a SC condition OR any condition if you are P and T for 10 years or more.  (my paraphrase).  

      More here:

      Source:

      https://www.va.gov/disability/dependency-indemnity-compensation/

      NOTE:   TO PROVE CAUSE OF DEATH WILL LIKELY REQUIRE AN AUTOPSY.  This means if you die of a SC condtion, your spouse would need to do an autopsy to prove cause of death to be from a SC condtiond.    If you were P and T for 10 full years, then the cause of death may not matter so much.

    • We Closed the Notice for Request 1
      Question Poised:
      We closed the notice for request 1. VA message states Closed the for Request 1 or 2 or some #. What does it mean?

      It is a status message that doesn't tell you where your claim is in the process.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?

    Note:

    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
