    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:

    • 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

I believe that you have 1 year to apply for 10,000 insurance from your most recent connection. At 100% you can have the premium waved. You can apply for an additon 30,000 if you like, but there will be a premium that you have to pay.

To find out for sure Visit Hadit/SVR archives and listen to one of the shows with Barry Haydt. Barry will answer any questions that you may have. His phone number is in the archive program.

At P and T (within a year) you should be able to get "waiver of premiums" due to total disability. You have to apply for it through VA insurance.

You will only get that for your first 10,000 of SDVI life insurance.

You probably should find out if you can re instate the old policy and get the premiums waived, (best) or get a new policy and get the premiums waived.

Its better to do the "old" policy if you can because, whole life insurance builds up dividends AND it is possible you could be refunded some or part of the premiums you paid that were eligible for "waiver of premium".

This will likely depend on your effective date, as well as the date you "dropped" the insurance.

If you had the "old" policy a while, and if it was also whole life, it will build up dividends which could be used to pay premiums.

You will have to check with VA life insurance..either call them or send them an email.

Stretch, also gave you good advice seeking someone knowledgeable in insurance.
