    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?”

  • 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

Case Closed



On Ebenifits.gov, it states my case was closed yesterday, 3 Jan 2011. How long afterwards should I expect something in the mail or a direct deposit on my claim? I retired in Sep, 2010 and that is when my case was opened.

Posting any specific timeframe would be nothing more than a guess, speculation.

Hopefully it will not be too long for you.

If you have a VSO, I would call them in a week or so.

My guess would be you should hear something within about 90 days.

You can also keep an eye out on your bank account.

Many times the $ hits the bank before an official notification arrives.

"Case Closed" on ebenefits site does not mean a lot. Sure, you can check your bank account and wait for a letter, but my ebenefits site has said my claim was "closed" for months and still nothing. Of course, as already said, neither IRIS nor the 800 number are all that reliable of information either, so the VA wonders why so many angry Vets when we cant even get accurate information.

Ebenefits is pretty much in "beta" which basically means it is in the testing phase, so the info there is sketchy and incomplete.

Others have asked about ebenefits reporting "case closed" and there has been mixed results.

There are a few things you can try:

1. You can go to your VA hospital and do a means test and ask them to check on your rating. They may hear before you get the letter.

2. If you are in voc rehab, your voc rehab counselor can sometimes find out before you get the letter.

3. Some VSO's have online access to your account and can tell you early.
