Depends on what your doc says. If he will write it up that way you have a good start. However, without such an opinion you just may be wasting your time. I have seen articles on the internet discussing such issues that support them but you will need a diagnosis indicating their association.

Good- even with 100 % P & T -a vet should try to get a SC rating for any other sc condition they have too-

it might in the long run set them up for SMC and in the event of their death-and we never know what we might die from- so if any SC is listed as contributing to death-the widow or widower will have less problems getting DIC.

Hopefully the Modernization Act of 2008 (ask your reps to support this important veterans bill)will pass and they actually remembered all widows and widowers in it and are asking for VA to stop the practice of allowing claims to die with the veteran.

As it is a widow-widower has to 'resurrect' any pending claim themself-

this is ridiculous.

They could even get a statement like the one I got from Rod's DAV NSO years ago-"Mrs Simmons- The veteran's claims (he had two pending) died with the veteran" and I had to remind him "Look buddy , 38 CFR says I can resurrect them and re-open them in my name."

Some of those dumb reps and NSOs still say that to survivors.

  • 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.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.

     

    Note:

     

    • 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.
