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?”

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
i am still not sure of the answer on this topic, even though i have read various threads, comments on it and would appreciate any advice from anybody who knows the real va answer. my brain is too tired to do much research lately:
i've heard/recall that a disabled veteran can transfer the montgomery gi bill to a qualified dependent if the veteran is rated 100 percent p&t or if rated tdiu. I am currently rated 100 percent schedular for anxiety/depression. va says in the rating decision package that i "may improve". i still wrestle with whether or not i should/could try to go back to school at age 48.
also, i was turned down as unstable to qualify for voc rehab. also i'm researching independent living and am just as confused about that program.
i also qualify for 90 percent of the new post 9/11 gi bill, but was not on active duty 1 aug 09 to qualify for transferability. so that one is out as far as transferability.
my question is would i have to be p&t or tdiu absolutely to transfer the montgomery gi bill to my wife and/or daughter. or are there any provisions for a schedular rated 100 percent to do the same.
also, if i did do independent living would that cancel out my gi bill eligibility as would voc rehab?
