    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

C&p For All Ratings



I have a DRO appeal in, now pending 2plus years for increase PTSD now rated at 30%, and IU. I had a C&P for increase - PTSD, in

July 2012. My question is, should'nt I have had a C&P for IU also, meaning all my SC disabilities ? I'm currently rated :

60 Skin


10 Left Ankle

10 Tinitus

00 Both Ears

I might add that I was awarded SSD for a combination of PTSD (SC) and Back (NSC)...

Can they make a decision without given me a C&P for the rest of my disabilities ?,

especially if they have gotten worse....

Your IU looks good to me if you are not working. If you have enough evidence in your c-file and your history of appointments and treatment they may not need to see you.

I have had 2 C&P's this year and was never informed or invited to either one.

2 years is mighty long for a PTSD decision. Do you use Ebenifits? sorry, bad joke. Slowlane

Did you file for IU? If so, I would think they can grant is without a C&P if the C&P examiner put down "more likely than not" or "at least like;u as not" that you cannot work. See if you can look at your C&P and check for those words. Your VSO can go to the patient advocate at the VAMC and ask him to look for those words. At least, they did for me.

If you have worked in the recent past and generated a 1099, that will not be helpful

"I have a DRO appeal in, now pending 2plus years for increase PTSD"

I know there are a lot of differing opinions but this is why I tried my best to get to BVA asap and declined DRO.

Thanks for the reply,

Yes I did file for IU...My Appeal is for increase of PTSD and IU, but that's just it ...They only gave me a C&P for increase PTSD.

An IU C&P should be given for every service connected disability you have. They suppose to re-examine you to see if any of your conditions

have gotten worse, better, or remains the same. I'm just afraid they may make a decision without giving me a C&P for IU, when I

know some of my conditions have gotten worse. I don't think it would be fair if I received a denial, without them examinig me and having to go to the BVA. I've already waited over 2 years for this DRO Appeal.

In the C&P for PTSD increase, the examiner did state that she feels my symptoms have increased in severity but does'nt give

her opinion on my being able to work or not....Would the DRO consider this C&P suffice for both PTSD and IU ?
