    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

Ptsd And Ebenefits


Hollis

Question

I have been watching ebenefits for a long time on my claims. It state, need more evidents from me. Well I called the 1-800 and spoke to a nice lady. I ask her what else could they need, they have my DD214 showing I was on the ground in Viet Nam, and all the medals and awards I got. They also know my MOS and a copy of the eval from the MH facility from the VA in Columbus GA. Her reply was "I DON'T KNOW" and that is just a standard reply while waiting on a decision. She also said it would be about 8 months. I reminder it is showing up to 02/2013. Heck who knows what going on in the VA.

Hollis - 02/2013 is the next date your claim is scheduled to be looked at. At that time they may decide if they have all the evidence, may request more, may make a decision . . . who knows! Sorry it takes so long but "it is what it is" and that's just life. Your decision is coming, eventually. I know this doesn't help but hang in there. jmo

Dont let "Peggy" blow you off. They will often try just that. VA is trained if they dont know the answer they are to "baffle us with BS". Many times that works...we have to Holler "BS".

Send an IRIS email with your "question"....... it sounds like a legit one to me. Something like:

IRIS:

Ebenefits shows my claim is being held up due to non receipt of evidence. Could you please tell me the evidence that is holding this up?

Signed...Ima Veteran.

Time after time I have seen this with VA. If you ask three VA people something you will get 3 vastly different answers. Just keep going till you get the answer you want to hear. You have to keep reminding yourself the VA has inept management.

Just a note is that Ebenefits showed that they needed more evidence from me for the last 2 claims I had up until the day it was decided.If you have given them all the evidence they have requested and all that you have I wouldn't worry about this too much.I think that this is a canned posting that they put up on all claims....good luck....Grid
