Finally! Ptsd Presumptive Monday


Brother Gate

Question

I heard the news while riding to the VA to see my doctor this morning. I could not believe it. What we have been fighting for will be realized Monday. No more proving; no more stressors; no more triggers; and no more of the same games. Don't know all that is ahead but this I do know; "We have come a long way baby!"

Thanks to all the brothers and sisters for their emails to their congressman and to the legislators and to the VA demanding our rights and benefits for the service we have paid for with blood sweat and tears. This time it is tears of joy. Let us all celebrate. It is just a beginning but this time we win!!!!!

Peace and love,

It may upset some, but I see it as an easy way for people to commit fraud and win benefits they did not earn. I'm sorry, but I don't agree with this ruling.

At this point, it really does not matter what you or I feel. The law is the law. We dealt with a law of inequity for years that was biased to deny the rightful veterans of their benefits. I don't share the burden of those who cheat but only the justified. For all of the veterans who have been denied unjustly, there was no recourse except through the courts. The burden of proof was always beared by the veteran. Now the table is turned. The VA is now faced with the truth of denial. I would be mindful not to throw the baby out with the wash.

Peace and continual love,

Bergie,

I agree with you. I am going through the process now and even though I hope for a positive outcome, I support doing the right thing. We all know there are a ton of people out there who are abusing the system which I believe adversely affects honest veterans with valid claims. Now apparently you can be on Camp Victory sipping a Latte and eating Pizza Hut, then come home and file a claim because you were in a combat zone even though you never left the wire. I think the VA should use their resources and money to improve the process so deserving vets are processed more efficiently.

It saddens me to hear you make that statement Bergie. There are tons of brothers and sisters out there that need the new rule assistance because of their DX's of PTSD but were having problems finding someone 40 years ago to help. Or other things that were there but could not find. Of course there are some who will try and game the system. There always is and always will be. Just look at the Banks, BP, your own Congressmen/women etc etc etc. But the ones that need the help the most now get a fair chance to get what you and others get. Peace at last and the chance to start over with a life without fear and hopelessness that has been eating away at them for over 40 years. I say Bravo for this new ruling. JMHO :lol:

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
