    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Awaiting A Signature



I called to check on my status and the lady told me it was in a very good spot and that it was awaiting a signature. I asked for my increase to be back dated to 1988 to 9/07 as I had not received a response from VA on my initial increase. I also put in for PTSD, cardio disease and degenerative disk disease. There is something troubling though and that is... they told me they received a letter from the Virginia parole board, and, I have never been in trouble with the law, what could that mean? I called as many people as I could from my local police dept. to the parole board itself and nobody has a record of my name in the system. Any input would be appreciated.

a couple of thoughts on the parole board thing you might have never been in trouble but you might have been a victim of ID theft, or SSAN, name etc by someone else have you ever lived in VA?

Waitng for a signature means nothing they even need a sign off signature for denials I learned that about 5 years ago you might get low balled but if you are hoping that they back date you for those medical problems back to 1988 I seriously doubt it will happen at the VARO level, maybe on a CUE claim to BVA or the Court of Veterans Appeals, but the VA is not going to award that kind of money easily you are trying to fight a bob cat with a new born kitten on this one

Well cause she said you were in a good place I would bet the ranch you have some type of award. Waiting for signature can mean days or weeks.

Good Luck

Well if you read Hadit for awhile you will find out that what you hear from 800 Number Operators is only as good as the last one you talked too. A lot of times I think that they make up chit just to move on to next call.
