Remember, everyone who comes here is a volunteer. At one point, they went to the forums looking for information. They liked it here and decided to stay and help other veterans. They share their personal experience, providing links to the law and reference materials and support because working on your claim can be exhausting and beyond frustrating.

Question

  • Moderator

Hello Hadit members. I have been thinking for quite some time now about finding a process to assist the folks here to understand the claims filing process.

We all are extremely aware that this monster we are dealing with can be highly complex and has even de-railed some claims because of the simple ability to understand the process.

Jerrel Cook and Myself discussed this on numerous occasions and we have come up with a plan.

Starting this Wednesday 12/08/2010, We will begin a 3 part series of SVR shows to discuss the claims process. The First show will be an elementary look into the claims process with general (easy) terminology that most newer folks can understand. The Next two shows will be a bit more complicated as the discussion will move to more complex issues.

I think Hadit has needed an elementary approach for quite some time. Many years ago when I first found Hadit, There were some folks who were so far advanced that they spoke a different language. I was dumbfounded for a long time until I started my own personal claims research.

Please bear with us as we get this one moving in the right direction and the Chat Room will again be open during the SR broadcasts.

If any member has any questions or concerns about this, please feel free to PM me or Jerrel at any time, Well Maybe except for dinner time.

John

That will be great J!

I myself will be grateful since it took a long time figureing out what JMO meant! lol. Kidding aside tho, that would be very beneficial to us. Half the time on the Forem is spent on exactly that! Well, for me anyway. GREAT IDEA!!!

Great idea, John!

I feel for the folks who are not as well equipped for dealing with The Machine.

Many have plenty to deal with already without having to become amateur attorneys.

Anything to simplify things for our fellow vets would be appreciated. :smile:

We have decided to make it a 4 part series and bring in Tbird to let her tell us the Hadit Story for part 1.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    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 to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • 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.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • 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.
        • 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 from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

  • 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
