    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?”

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    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

Ebenefits is like a box of chocolates, you don't know what you will get until you open it upbiggrin.png Seriouly, sometimes I believe this system was created to give the VA a tool for their entertainment. JMHO

The VA also had my DD214, but what I did was send them a copy of my manifest and orders going and coming from Vietnam. I had a picture that said welcome to Vietnam, and I was under the sign. It is really sad that we have to go to these extremes, but we have to do what we have to do.

I just hope that this is finally over. Ebenefits still shows prep for notification. i am very nervous due to the process going so fast. I hope i dont get denied even though I have numerous medical records from the military complaining about my injuries.

Well gentlemen,

When you end up appealing your incorrect or lowball decision, eBenefits won't be so traumatic for you. It gives you absolutely no information about what is going on with a DRO process (no incremental steps to watch). It will simply tell you that it is pending with your local RO, and if your LOCAL RO is really good, they will have it indicate it is pending with the BVA and you should call them!

Best regards,

Any chance it is a partial award? You will get at SOC unless it is a 100% award of what you requested, and they will always tell you appeal is possible, even on letters!

Continue to persevere!

Yes sir it may be. i just talked with my wife about this. i was sad, she was happy. i have bilateral knee, bilateral shoulder and lung condition. It could be that they do not total 100%. i cannot get epeggy on the line (too many call?) and i cannot tell from ebennies.

did you provide medical evidence linking your current condition to the medical records in the military complaining of your injuries?

no sir. I simply used all of my medical records from the military (huuuuge folder) I went in for shoulder pain and my PCP advised to pursue a claim. I have been getting VA treatment since 5-5-2011.

when did you seperate from service?

June 16th 1995. I had been in and out of the VA for depression for a while before I stopped taking my meds that were really messing with mymind. I normally hurt around the winter but the past 2 years have been daily. So I finally claimed it. I had two documented vehicle rollover acidents.

did your pcp offfer a link between your current condition and your in service injuries? if not, and you haven;t been treated continually since service I see a denial in your future. sorry. look up IMO on this site.

i appreciate the advice so much that i am enrolling in our health benefits right now. I have seen people get their claim partially approved even though it has been a long time since their ETS. It was due to them being young and the older they got the worse the injury was. Thanks for your advice though.
