    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?”

    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

I just wanted to say that this option worked wonderfully for me.After several attempts to get my PTSD claim approved I changed tactics. I filled out the Fully Developed Claim paperwork, attached over a years worth of Mental Health notes from my VA Psychiatrist showing she had diagnosed me with PTSD/MDD and showing my meds and my attendance at the PTSD group at my clinic.Also included a buddy statement written by my sister about the changes in me and my personality from before the Gulf War and to present.I submitted this all together (certified,return reciept) and in less than 4 months I had C&P exam with a VA contract Psych and a decision awarding me 70% for PTSD with MDD.IT WORKS, just make sure that you have all of your supporting paperwork including........And this was done through the Waco RO which seems to be very slow claims.......Good luck to everyone.....Grid

I fully agree..FDC does work and more Vets should investigate how to use them and why. I just did my FDC in the middle of Oct. and yes, I mailed it Certified and on the 19th, I revd. confirmation that the VA had gotten it. Although, it is still NOT posted on E-Benefits and when I call Peggy this AM, she said that they have 21 days to put the info on E-Bennies. That I did not know. I thought it was closer to ten days. However, I like the FDC and how YOU can control everything and not have to depend on others.

Good Topic.
