Put The Va And Our Reps On Front St.


Pam

Question

Hello, I'm new at all of this. My husband died 11/21/06. I spent the months before his death in the worst nightmare anyone could imagine . and then add the VA. After claims not filed by the service officer ( or none could be found) and lies from everyone in and connected with the VA, I tried my congressman, that fell on I really don"t care ears. I am only one vote , after all. So I tried something that just might have helped, it didn't hurt me any way. I put together a packet of my documents that proved what had been happening to me. I included a list of all of the people who would be recieving the packet. Shortly thereafter I recieved a message on my phone that my claim had been "unofficialy" approved. About a week later I recieved my first DIC check ,via the funeral home in town. I'm still trying to get that fixed. I've recieved two checks so far, but, I still haven't recieved that "official" notice. This is after a month earlier they couldn't find my file, nothing to show I had a claim at all. I still have so many problems to solve with the VA . It has really taken it's tole on me. I've decided to take my energy and try to do something positive and help our local Vets haveing a hard time. What I would like to do is organize a mail your packet day, when we could put the VA and all our reps on Front St. I'm working on that locally ,but, I would be proud to stand by you and share my notes and addresses with you if you would like to try this on a scale larger than my local try. All of my contact information is on my web at woolbertscountrymastiff.com Thank you Pam

    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
