    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Heads Up Iu Folks

If you are receiving IU and you receive a emplyment verification request form, fill it out and send it certified return recipt, Fed Ex or Ups.

A Buddy of mine supposedly was sent a leltter from the Louisville RO .

He did not receive it and he was contacted by the DAV chewing him out for not sendint it in.

I have two issues here. The RO Sent one in March that he did fill out and send back.so they have the completed form.

Also the DAV rep should have assisted the veteran instead of acting like he is employed by the VA.

Cut to yesterday. They cut his IU and he did not receive his 60 percent either.

What a bunch of crooks.

He is in touch with an attorney.

this mess with IU and the work form has been an annual problem for about 5 years now when the VAROs started focusing on it they let the forms lapse for awhile since each vet has a different month when their IU was approved it doesn't do you any good to send a form in every Jan, but most vets know when their month of grant was made and I would have a stack of those forms ready to go the month prior to the annual date and send it in return receipt requested or if you live close enouh drive the form down to the VARO and get a date stamped copy from a service center rep.

the lawyer is overkill at this point, bottom line is the vet still needs to file the form there has been no change in the vets work ability IU in order to lose it is go back to work or not return the income form annually

I don't see paying a lawyer 20% to file a form the vet can do I would have only got the lawyer involved if the VARO refused to restart the IU compensation after I submitted the document they claim is needed. We all know they play games, and most of us are proactive on this type of stuff because we have seen it to many times in the past 10-40 years this is not new

Hello All,

Jbasser,,,that is why I caution every Veteran on using the DAV. They do act like they work for the VA not the Veteran. I fired them years ago after they screwed my claim up so bad and would not use them if my life depended on it. If I had to use a VSO it would probably be Americian Legion, Vietnam Veterans of American and maybe PVA or VFW in possibly that order. Then I would, without hesitation, get a lawyer after the initial decision comes back. This is just another way the VA can "force out" a Veteran and not take care of this countrys Veterans as promised. Oh yea,,,,,that is 38 CFR 3.103 part d......DUE PROCESS.......at its best.... isn't it? NEVER GIVE UP . God Bless, C.C.

Sorrry to hear this, J. JMHO, Your buddy should send in a Hardship Request, also. After 20 years on IU, they will leave em' alone.
