    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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 too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost 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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Comp-psy Appointment



I got my Comp&Pen appointment notice in the mail today. My appointment is June 29th for increase for Bipolar. I'm currently at 50%.

The notice states

"Due to the limited time given to complete your claim, we are requesting that you keep the above appointment."

Is this just normal VA verbage or are they actually in a time limit to complete my claim?

they are basically saying if YOU miss the appt it will really really really delay the processing of your claim and it will be YOUR fault they like guilt trips

I see one of two things that this means. (1) The rater has been given a time limit in which to complete your claim so they can mark your claim as completed within some time limit they were given. (2) The C&P schedule is so backed up, if you decided to reschedule the C&P appointment, it would be some time before you could get in again and therefore it would delay the rating of your claim in perportion to how long you would have to wait for a new appointment.

If you can in no way make this appointment, I would urge you to find a way to make it. With the present climate for raters to clear claims quicker, It would be in your best interest to not reschedule for another date.

Carla, i talked to my DAV rep today and he said they have a mid July completion on my claim.

Just thought you might want to hear this since you stated they have no time limit.

I already sent this post once and somehow and it didn't post for some reason.

I found out today there is a time limit for adjudication of my claim. Sometime in July it's supposed to be rated and finalized.
