    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?”

Question

I submitted three claims on May 10, 2012 to Phila Va. I had three c&ps on June 4, 2012 at Lebanon Va Med center. When I finally got on e-benifits around Aug 4, 2012 I was listed as preparation for decision, It sat there untill Sept. 19, 2012, that was a day or two ago. Wednesday morning e-bennys said my claims have gone to pending decision appoval. I thought hot dog man these claims of mine are on the space shuttle. Wednseday evening they went to preparation for notification and I thought wow this is awlsome. Now here is a kicker, this morning e-bennys tells me my claims went way back to review of evidence. Now that was bad for my deppresion and I know a lot of us have gone thru this. So I went to the horse track and won fifty bucks or so. I got home and got back on e-beifits and I was still at reveiw of evidence and it did not surprise me. I don't know why but I hit the letter box and downloaded to see if I changed from $435.00. And it sure did. It said gross benefit amount $1,201.00 net amout paid June 1, 2012. I didn't get any money yet but I went from 30% to 60% and a K rate. I'm sorry this is so long but I want people to know surprises can come at any time! Good luck all
