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.
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.
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.
Post 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?”

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
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
I am a little puzzled.
I down loaded the TDIU Form and took the completed form
and my letter from Social Security that I have not
been employed since 1983.
I took them to the Roanoke Regional Office, May 28, 2008.
I have called the Call Number and to date those papers have
not been logged into my claim.
Well, finally I took the same papers, called the Call toll free number
and ask for the fax number for the Huntington R.O
The Marine Recruiter faxed all these date stamped papers to the
Veterans Service Center Manager for me three days ago.
Still no log in.
Should it really take this long to log in papers?
I do know the Huntington R. O has had my completed paper for
my husband as a dependent of 43 years, since May 8, 2008,
I still haven't heard anything about this either.
The Service Manager during my first internet inquiry told me
they would be paying my husband back 11 years. I only wrote
to him to let him know that I was requesting them to pay my husband
the back pay.
I was told, by the toll free number, I must ask for anything
that I want from the VA.
For the dependent paper, they just about rated my complete file
in the time this is taking.
Any suggestions on how to get some answers on why my TDIU is
not being logged in.
The call number is not much help.
