I dont want to be the bearer of bad news, but I asked for this back in 2004 as I was loosing my home. It will depend on your regional office. If you are in Cleveland, you better figure something else out, because those people wont help you. Some of the other RO's are not as bad. How do you think that Cleveland got the reputation of being the stingiest RO in the nation, according to the AG report?

Oh, yes..and I did loose my home. VA did not care. I finally got partial benefits about a year later.

I tried to expedite my claim as I was about to be foreclosed on I was broke my world had crashed I had been in a VA Hospital for a month and more than 5 years later I won so it better be something more than financial.

I did help a Vet get a pension who was homeless once and he got it in 3 months. So maybe homeless works.

I've been disabled/unemployed since 2004. Had to go bankrupt last year. It didn't, hasn't, done me any good. ;)

  • 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.
