    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

What Should I Do Now That I Am Closed


SpcDearman

Question

i am in a closed status as of yesterday. I am happy/sad/nervous. i see no AB8 letter to generate (it may be to early) and epeggy has not been able to supply any information at all concerning my denial/award. Is it too early to ask for copies of my medical records and all c & p 's performed? Should I just sit and wait patiently? For some reason (RDAWG) i do believe that I have been denied. I have not had treatment on my shoulders in 14 years but as soon as my claim started treatment did begin and is still ongoing. Should I worry about this?

in ebeneys, under "Apply for Benefits" click the "Benefits Explorer" link. If you are rated it will show your current rating. It may not be there yet as it was closed just yesterday.

I gave my honest opinion on your chances because I did the same thing on the claim for my back. I injured it in service (documented about 20 times), self treated for about 10 years until it was too bad, went to the dr and was treated for about 2 years, then I filed thinking the VA would connect the dots. They did not. I was denied in about 4 months. I found Hadit, read what it takes to get service connected, got an IMO from Dr. Bash, submitted IMO with a letter asking to withdraw my NOD (DAV rep submitted NOD as Standard operating procedure) and reconsider based on the new evidence. I was granted service connection 60 days later.

Good luck.

rdawg stop talking and depressing me. i am just kidding sir. i really appreciate your help. I know that you are a realist like me and anticipated the VA to lowball me. Somewhere in the process i thought that they would do the right thing. Ok so i requested a copy of my medical records and all fitness reports. Please keep leaving your opinion. is Dr. Bash expensive? i have heard about him quite a bit.

Oh and dont get me started on my back. i did not claim it and hae been diagnosed with Scoliosys. Good thing is that it was documented upon my enlistment. they saw it and entered me anyway. Go figure. And again Rdawg, you comments are greatly appreciated sir. The previous was a failed attempt at humor. i wont quit my day job.

I did this sir and there is nothing as of yet. You are correct. It is too early to tell. Even if I get 10% i will be happy.
