    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

Right, if Voc Rehab says you can't be rehabilitated because of your SC disabilities then IU is obvious. If they drag in the age and other health problems that are NSC then that is problematic. Age is not a factor in awarding IU.

I see it a little differently... the va will deny it because of your age... and only your age.. they will say that it is not beneficial to send someone to school at age 61. They will say that if and when you finish school you will be at normal retirement age. They will argue the money could be better spent on someone who will be in the workforce longer .. instead they will offer you the Independant living service program for a hobby of sorts.. this way they do not even have to address the medical issues.. and there denial will not assist with an IU claim..

Yep that is what my crystal ball shows... so you like to fish do you... nice new rod they got you there ...LOL :unsure:

They will probably turn you down and ask you if your are interested in Independent Living. If they do ask them what they have in mind. They usually suggest hobby or computer but you can use it to make living in your home better
