    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

Going To Appeal Ptsd Claim.


usmcman001

Question

I need to know what needs to be done to appeal a decision on PTSD? I think I warrant a higher percentage. I have waited almost the year period which is up on the 10th of this month. What can I do to make sure I keep my date it was put in? Just have it post dated?

It'd be great if you could post the decision, minus your personal info

like name, SSA #, address, etc...

What do the Reasons and Bases Section/s state and

what evidence do you have that supports a higher percentage ?

To keep an effective date you MUST file a NOD within a year of the decision.

I would do it in person at my VARO and get a date stamped copy.

Since today is the 10th, I would either drop off my NOD in person, Tuesday morning, at the VARO, or mail it certified mail return receipt requested/with delivery confirmation. The NOD need not be lengthy and can just be a statement that you disagree w/their decision and why. You can amend it later, if needed. If you go in person "do not" allow them to turn your NOD away saying it's too late. Your date of the 10th probably doesn't allow for the time it took the decision to reach you, nor the fact that today Nov 10, is a Saturday, and should probably be the 13th. Whatever you do don't allow the deadline to pass!!!!

Hello USMCMAN,

You have great advice here ,,,,,remember that your Early Effective date is almost gone. PLEASE do not let your date slip away. I would do as Carlie and PR said and get that to the VA ASAP. PROTECT YOUR TIMELINE. Our members can tell many sad tales as to letting their dates expire and having to reopen a claim, therefore forfeiting your retroactive pay that goes back to your EED. Just like PR said you can add more evidence later after it is posted by the VARO. Also waiting for these decisions requires an attitude of NEVER GIVE UP. God Bless, C.C.
