This thread is over 365 days old and has been closed.

Please post your question as a New Topic by clicking this link and choosing which forum to post in.

For almost everything you are going to want to post in VA Claims Research.

If this is your first time posting. Take a moment and read our Guidelines. It will inform you of what is and isn't acceptable and tips on getting your questions answered. 

 

Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating. 

 

This thread may still provide value to you and is worth at least skimming through the responses to see if any of them answer your question. Knowledge Is Power, and there is a lot of knowledge in older threads.

I dunno, so put it simply.

I can't figure out ANYthing about the VA method of mathematics.

I do know that 30% isn't gonna get you $939.00 a month.

It's heck when you have, as I do, English, not as a "first" language, nor even a "second" language, but as a third language.

I didn't have television when I was growing up, we didn't live close enough to a large town that had a TV station and I grew up on a ranch with my Grandparents and they spoke Yiddish/Hebrew and the kids that lived on the ranch, the ranch foreman's kids were all Hispanic and they didn't speak English either, so I wound up getting on the School Bus for my first day at grade school not knowing any English (I rode the school bus for 1 1/2 hours each morning and afternoon, just getting to school and back home. 5 A.M. comes very early on the farm.

The kids at school made fun of me, until the teacher pointed out the fact that, unlike them, I spoke and wrote 2 languages OTHER than English and they needed to concentrate on THEIR English as I was learning and doing BETTER than they were and would soon surpass their English abilities.

What rate are you being paid at plus are you receiving any additional amounts such smc k?

Looks like (without seeing the letter) from the amounts listed are the gross amounts due you and they are an increase from a previous amount that was paid for maybe something like a previous 10 percent award. Bottom line is they are only going to give you the 'MONTHLY ENTITLEMENT AMOUNT" nothing more.

  • 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.
