    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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

There is info on Voc Rehab at the VA web site-

looks like all you need to do is decide on where you are going to attend college-

At some point you need to contact the school's VA counselor- and they can make it all go easy from that point-

you are probably eligible for a book grant under Voc Rehab too- The school's VA counselor will give you a bookstore voucher.

Voc Rehab can be a 2 edged sword.

My husband went through Voc Rehab.He also had just been employed part time by the VA and received at that time 30% for PTSD.

One MONTH after he started Voc Rehab he got a letter from VA that stated :

Due to his attainment of substantial employment (crap part time job they were forced to give him due to potential EEOC complaint)

and DUE to one semester of college (he became a rocket scientist in 8 weeks)

the VA was proposing to reduce his comp.

I prepared the NOD.

Within a few months they changed their mind and he retained his 30 %.

Watch out for that-it does not always happen but I think the biggest problem was that he was a VA employee and this was why they tried to pull this.

That's Kinda what I'm worried about. What the VA might try to do because I will be a full time student. I don't have PTSD though. I am appealing TDIU presently which could be jeopardized but that's probally a fight that I'll be going through for at least 4 more years. By then I should be graduating (knock on wood).

A sedentary skill is the goal with employment so by then the TDIU issue would become moot. What about while I'm a student?
