    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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?”

    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

Be sure and go to the C&P. Ask the examiner to help you get P&T. Do you get SSD? If so take proof of it to examiner.

Good Luck

This exact same thing happened to me a couple of years ago. Try to be relax, I think it is pretty routine. Tell them that you PTSD is still a major problem in your life. Tell them about your worse days.

Note that you will still have an opportunity to file a NOD if the VA decides to change your rating. I would not worry much about it.

You will be there for a re-evaluation of PTSD, so Stay focused on your PTSD, I wouldn't go into your non SC disabilities unless asked.

If by some rare chance the VA were to reduce you to less than 100% make known to the examiner that you are unable to work at this time. You should be considered for IU even if you were reduced from 100%. Until you get P&T you are going to get these calls. This is why I say that if you get IU or 100% you should appeal any denial of chapter 35.

iron,

Your profile shows Sarasota, Florida.

Do you know that in Fl. a vet that is SC'd at 100% P&T

pays ZERO dollars for property taxes on one home they own or are purchasing ?

That means you can own a 5 million dollar home with zero property

taxes to be paid.

Of course I am not suggesting the purchase of a 5 million dollar home,

just pointing out the great benefit for you.

There are several more state benefits available to you.

Check them all out.

Congrats,

carlie
