I got the same letter today. I am 100% schedular and it stated that I was not P&T. I guess next week they will come out and say that it had something to do with the computer. Sound familiar, another computer sgenerated letter!

A few years ago the VA started to review all PTSD vets- there was such an uproar from PTSD vets themselves,about that, the VA dropped the idea.

last year I noticed more and more vets with 100% P & T were being called in for new C & Ps-this can happen regardless of a vet's rating 100 P & T or not but it seemed like they were doing this more than usual-

if the VA is now questioning past P & T awards-it looks like they are beginning another method to try to save money.

Just think of all the CHAMPVA and Chapter 35 money they could save by suddenly telliing vets they were P & T 100% but now they aren't.

As long as the VA has declared a vet 100% P & T in a past award letter-and has awarded Chapter 35 and CHAMPVA-they can't suddenly renig on that unless they are proposing a reduction.

Or unless they are making major errors in these initial award letters.

Do you mean she gets CHAMPVA due to her deceased spouses 100% P & T ?

I assume she is GSW member.

They better not screw around with us Gold Star Wives-

GSW is extremely well organized and continually GSWs gets legislation passed-

I never post all they do and what they intend to do for widows and widowers of veterans.

Lastest is the SB offset to DIC fight and they want the VA to again raise the age limit for remarraige-

they got 57 but now push for age 55-

if a widow remarries after 57 they do not have to give up their DIC.

55 would be better-

even age 21 would be best-

every night Nancy Grace honors a deceased veteran from OIF OEF-

some are barely 21 years old and dead due to their service and many of these men and women have left dependent spouses and children.

They are also pushing for higher DIC rates.

That is why they gave H VAC testimony yesterday and in the past many times.

As I understand it the Quality of Life that is proposed will make DIC an automatic like Insurance and a higher rate of pay

  • 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. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
