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.
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.
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.
Post straightforward questions and then post background information.
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?”

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.

Most Common VA Disabilities Claimed for Compensation:
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
The 3 disabilities that i filed a claim for were secondary to my SC left knee & thigh in which i got 40%.
The reasons why i had 3 cp exams were that i took the first cp exam that was not truely & accurate and not in my favor. i complaint to the varo and they sheduled a 2nd that was accurate and was favorable toward my claim.
Meanwhile the rater rated my claim using the the first untrue & inaccurate cp exam & low rated me giving me 10% for my hip & 0% (service connected) for my spine. He did not review the 2nd cp exam that was in my c-file
I file for a reconsideration base on the 2nd exam (that was in my favor) as new evidence.
My DAV rep paid the rater a visit with my c-file in hand to show him the 2nd exam he miss. The rater acknowledged he was wrong & after reviewing the 2nd one that was favorable toward my claim he decided to order another cp exam.
The 3rd exam was even better than the 2nd one.
I just called the 800 number & was told that the status of my claim was it was with rating board to be rated.
I hope they use the 3rd cp exam. Could anyone tell me which one of the cp exam will they use or which one they must use?
