Frosty - I hope you are more than 10% now.

Personally, I don't there is such a thing as

10% PTSD. Just my opinion.

Actually, I believe I read a reg somewhere that said you could not rate a vet for PTSD less then 50% within the first 6 mnths of being released from the military........sounds crazy, but I know I read it somewhere:-)

I was rated 10% for PTSD in 1984, 14 years after leaving Vietnam, and stayed at 10% until 1996, when I applied for increase, got 50% with no problem, in May 1998 applied for increase, in nov 2003, got 70% with tdiu, with 56 months backpay, then in 2003 I got 100% scheduler, on account of anxiety attacks and agoraphobia. so yes can be 10% for PTSD, WHEN A PERSON IS STUPID ENOUGH TO BELIEVE the va and their vso, who are nothing more then flunkys for the va, at least up in this country. now have appied for earlier effective date for tdiu, back to Jan of 1995, and if I can legally apply, would apply for increase back to 1984.

    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?”
