    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

Based upon my experience several years ago, - - - -

An NOD was submitted and asked for a DeNovo.

The De Novo was "completed about thirty days after receipt of the NOD & request.

Rubber Stamp, anyone?

When ebenefits was down for maintenance on Sunday on 9/23/2012, mine went from Gathering of Evidence to Preparation for Notification. I found out on Monday that ebenefits made a mistake with a lot of peoples claims. I would be cautiously optimistic......

Hopefull it is true for yoursake diceman E benefits is really acting haywire it showed my claim for dependents ready for notification since monday no change in status so I suspect a flaw in the system hopefully for both our sakes it is true

If your NOD is showing up in claims status, they are not processing it as a NOD.

I NOD will show up in Appeals, and they will forever tell you it is pending with the BVA even if they haven't certified it!

Hope this isn't bad news for you.

hi all to 71m10 this was a nod for a dro review not a nod to the bva as of yet thank you for your reply. thank you all for the replys i am so confused i checked ebenefits tonight and my claim went back to the decision phase and this is what it said, Change of Status: We determined that your claim needed additional review. If additional evidence is needed from you, you will receive a letter from us explaining what is needed. i just dont no if this is good or bad i just want to give up at this point

Hang in there my freind. Your dro or claim has not been in the system that long. Many have been waiting for years. I filed a claim in 2003 and still haven't got it closed. I been thru bva thru a remand and now they say it is at the dro. So hang in there It could be a while or it could be tomorrow. I filed 3 claims in may this year and just go rated last week and my claims jumped back and forth on E-bennys. I was lucky mine went thru that fast.
