Hi All.........

First I'd like to say that if it were not for this site and reading the post to get prepared this probably would not have happened so quick or happened at all, this site is GREAT....I thank everyone here and everyone that responded to my post and all the other post... Now for the Good news....Received a call from SS this morning at 09:00 saying I was approved, They are back dating it to Mar 3 2008, thats when I became 100% thru the VA. There is a 5 month waiting period where you get NOTHING "0" Then the month you are entitled to it you get the following month on the last Wednesday of the month, so the first check will be Oct (for Sept) I filed for SS on 11 JUNE so that makes that 42 days for the Approval. When I first applied I had a copy of all my VA Medical records from Salisbury NC and all the paperwork form the Philly VA, Also all outside Doctors reports. They made copies at the SS office here in Philly. Today...I really feel GREAT !! and one last note...the person that called from SS was VERY NICE, polite and explained everything to me. So do not give up hope. B)

Congratulations Joe! I'm glad that SSD was nice about it all. I got approved for SSD through California and they were pretty good about things as well, but as for the VA and the way they do things B) ..... I guess it just depends on the state. Again congratulations!

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.


    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.


    You can read the forums without registering.


    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 to:


    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.


    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.




    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

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

    employment 2.jpeg

    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
