    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

From Post Determination, Back To Rating Office



Hello everyone,

Today I learned my claim file has gone back to the rating board from Post Determination. Why would this happen and do you think this is to my advantage or disadvantage?

In addition, I learned that my c-file is in Puerto Rico instead of my VARO, which is in Winston Salem, N.C. According to the V.A. Rep. my file was chosen randomly and sent there because of Winston Salem's backlog of claims. I wonder if this is a blessing or not? Interestinggggg!

The last time, I spoke with a V.A. Rep. he said I had just left third base on my way home. I guess, I'm back on 3rd base, nevertheless it won't be as long as it has been (I don't think).

Have a great evening!

It will only take a couple of days. They may have rated something under the wrong rating code or missed an issue. It will go back if the rater forgot to sign it. They have to send them back for misspelled words. They usually correct them right away and send them back to Post Determination. The end is near :D .

Kw34 you are funny! So what are you really saying about the Winston Salem VARO?

Sharon and Carlie, I look at it as money in the bank whenever it gets here.I have SSA in place along with state disability comp. I'm just happy I finally took the time and had the guts to file. Sometimes , things seem more difficult than they actually are. I wish I had filed a lot sooner.

A couple days sounds great and three months is still okay. If I had to speculate, I would say I will hear something in three weeks. Are there anymore speculations out there?
