Strap on your seat belt and get ready for a long ride. This will take a consideratable amount of time for them to review all of your SMR's and exam results, and hopefully you have sent other evidence.

Remember YOU are your best ADVOCATE when it comes to your file. Gather all evidence and statements from all who can validate your claim. Read, study, and take action to prove your disabling condition. Make it hard for them, VARO, to deny or low-ball you.

Good luck and hold on tight for the ride of your life. B)

You need to keep one thing in mind (well, more than ONE thing, but we'll kinda take this dance a step at a time) and that is, for you to prevail in a PTSD claim, you will have to have a "proven stressor".

BTW, Welcome Aboard.

Welcome and thanks for your service..Be ur own Advocate and DON"T take a back seat. You need to stay on top and refuse to fall through the cracks. Do not be afraid to tell them how u really feel(within reason). This is not the time! Your evidence and efforts put in will/should show up in the end results,Hopefully! Peace, William N.

Welcome to Hadit. Since you are also diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder that may be an easier route for you to take unless you have a provable stressor.

Second if you are not working apply for Social Security as that will probably go faster than VA.

good Luck

Also how long have you been seperated from Navy?

Hello and welcome to the Hadit family. Thanks to the time I've spent here at Hadit and other research, I've learned to get a copy of a clear diagnosis to submit with any VA disability claim. Good luck and get a copy soonest. Also, if you have dependents add them now to your VA file, there is a form, cant recall the number just now. Compensation for my dependents took near a year.

Yes, Halo said it "Self Advocate" is key to being awarded "YOUR' disability benefits.

Best to ya,

CG

  • 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.
