    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?”

    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

December 7th and when i called the 800 number today I was told my case

was rated the 21st.

My Questions is?

What happens after rating and how soon do they mail me the results

and how soon do they disburse funds.

The women said they mail out notiification soon but do they

answer this fast out of rating department

She said she couldt give me the rating information since it was

just rated over the phone. I had to be notificed by mail to recieve it.

Is this true or when can I call to get it.

They cannot tell you your rating over the phone. You are going to have to wait for the mail. Your claim is currently in the authorization stage. The national average for that process is 10-40 days. It seems like your claim went by pretty quick. I filed my claim 6 months ago and had my C&P in August. Just be patient abd wait on the mail or pay attention to your bank account if you have direct deposit.

This is GREAT!!!!!

Does the VA know of the Direct Deposit as well as SSA?

I have direct deposit with VA and my retro offset check earlier this year, in a letter from VA, was to be transmitted to my regular bank.

However a few days later I found the check under a pile of snow in my mailbox as the mailbox door had blown open.

Hope your retro comes sooner and maybe it will arrive even before the official award letter.
