    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:

    • 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

Is Their Such A Claim Involving Error?

Guest Jim S.


If a Veteran submits an Appeal of a previously denied claim, questioning the inadequecies of the VA Examiners examine, be viewed as an informal CUE claim for the inadequicies of the VA Examiners Exam and subequit Report for Adjudicational Purposes?

Should this informal CUE have been addressed in the SOC and if it is shown that it wasn't, would this be considered an open claim?

A CUE is never an "informal" or inferred issue.

It is a collateral attack by the claimant on a past final decision.

The claimant must file a formal CUE, tell them the decision date of final decision (and attach the decision if they have the whole thing)

and the claimant must state the regulations they broke in their adjudication of that claim,and add that their error manifested altered the outcome of that claim.

I posted a CAVC successful CUE here some weeks back in which the veteran had incorporated a faulty C & P into the CUE-

I couldnt save the link- I got a AOL message that I had 2500 Favorite places saved and had to start eliminating some-to save more-

This case is at hadit somewhere-and of course at the CAVC.

If the VARO sees a CUE situation,however, they can CUE themselves and correct it and they have done that. I have received benefit of VARO cueing itself in the past on an old decision they gave me.

Final decision- I got it in 1997-bought what they were selling and never appealed it-

Regs had been broken-(Regional Counsel discovered the error while checking another matter I had with the VA)

Manifestly different outcome (they owed me more money)

The three Prongs of CUE -as called by the BVA- appear in almost every CUE decision-

each one must be satisfied in order to have valid CUE.

A vet emailed a CUE to me yesterday that we had developed-well Not we-

she herself had stated in email exactly what she needed in the CUE.

I just wrote it up briefly -2 -3 paragraphs but she herself had stated it properly-

she attached the decision and the reg they broke-and how this error -if not having occurred-would have manifestedly altered that old decision-as a higher rating is due the veteran -retro to the old decision-

Cue claims should all be fairly easy to understand their merits- on their face-obvious error-

and stated in one brief page,with the regs they broke, and the old decision.
