Sf-180- Questions


evandc

Question

  • HadIt.com Elder

It's been 10 years since I did a SF-180. Now we have some new vets just starting & need to get records. I know that in 1. you ask for an Undeleted, Copy. In 2. what goes there? all records to include medical In 3. Purpose- I can't remember, so what is it. I know that we had certain way to answer questions to be sure an get all (yes I dreaming) our records. Also to make sure you don't get charged.

Any help would be appreciated.

Don-I would request Undeleted copy and all personnel records too or any Disciplinary reports- in some vets cases-

Disciplinary reports helped me to help a vet prove to the VA that he had a mental disorder manifested in service in 1962 and his odd discipline problems -very unusual compared to his overall service record-were the first symptoms of it.

He just got back from Europe -second trip and bought a big house with his retro.

Berta,

What is an undeleted copy? Is this your military medical records and personnel records.

I am sorry to bother you.

An undeleted copy does not include your SMR, service medical records, veterans do not know and are not told that the SMR's are in your C file at the VA and readily available. You can ask to have them copied and/or you can go read them and copy what you need. It is up to you but they are in your C file, nine times out of ten. Just that no one tells you. If you request a 180 you only get your personnel files, they normally do not send your SMR's. Q

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. 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.
       
    2. 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.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to 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.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
