    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.
     
     
    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

Had cp exam in Feb. 2012 and did not get any answers yet,how much longer should I wait before I go and see the DAV rep?

I had two exams conducted in October of 2011 and still haven't heard their decision. Both reports were favorable. According to the VA the reports are waiting for the RO's review...it's freaking ridiculous but all we can do is be patient I guess...

That sounds like a long time for an initial claim.

Have you tried calling Case Management?

Hope you get an answer soon.

Was there a possible inferred case of TDIU? A year to wait after a C&P exam is a long time. Usually, the decision comes soon after the C&P.

Hey guys do u think I can get some information from the 202# in reference to my appeal that is still sitting at the L.A. varo? My appeal has been sitting at varo since 2007 with no activity since. Or is the 202# just for claims and not appeals? Thanks in advance for the info.

I even had some c&p exams done 14 months ago that I haven't heard back from yet. What's really frustrating is that the exams were favorable but they have been sitting at someones desk and not been reviewed yet.

i am in the same boat. Been waiting for an appeal(NOD) for 3 years. I believe I have another 3 to go.

By then, I will probably be 6 foot down!

I think it is for a claim or appeal over 18 months old.

Wow I got thru on my first attempt at the 202#. They were a lil rude at first but it got better as the call went along. smile.png

I can't believe i went from not having any information since 2007 to finding out that my appeal is in the decision phase. The L.A. varo is also supposed to call me within the next couple of days and give me an update. Outstanding. I wish I would have known about that number sooner. Highly recommend calling that number if you have an old clam or appeal.

Nice smile.png Hopefully we will here some good news...

I had my appeal certified 12/2010. Called today and was told the same thing. We'll see what happens...

Well it looks like things could be getting a little interesting soon with my appeal. It was supposed to get certified and sent to bva since 2007 but today I found out that the ro issued a ssoc yesterday after ordering a couple of c&p exams last year. I filed my claim in 2004 and has been under appeal since. I hope this is good news for a change....crossing fingers, toes.....
