    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

Is Their Any Use Filing More Claims


carolina52

Question

I WAS APPROVED AT 10 %, IHD (ON APPEAL NOW FOR 30%). I WAS APPROVED AT 80% FOR PARKINSON'S (ON APPEAL FOR RETROACTIVE PAY, NEHMER) AND APPROVED FOR 100% TDIU. THE PARKINSON'S IS PROGRESSING FAST AND I KNOW I'M GOING TO END UP IN A WHEEL CHAIR OR CONFINED TO BED. I HAVE FOUR SECONDAIRES I COULD FILE ON IHD AND PARKINSON'S, BUT IS THEIR ANY USE TO FILE SINCE I AM AT 100%. CAN YOU GET MORE THAN 100%, IF I CAN I WILL FILE IF IT CAN HELP MY FANTASTIC WIFE.

GOD BLESS

WARREN

Yes if you feel you have valid claims you should file them. I am living proof that you can go from TDIU to 100% to HB to A&A.... and along the way pick up a K award, adapted housing and auto grants,and no one said it could be done.. My VA Check is $3878 monthly...

I posted this on another blog but think it was an old one so I am posting here. I have severe COPD (BULLOS EMPHSEMA). I HAVE A FEV1 OF 32% and have been out of work since feb 2012. My doctor says its very rare for someone of my age(43) to have it from smoking alone. I quit smoking in 2006 and was doing fine until oct of 2011. After finding my dicharge paper work that I kept all the years I discoverd that on my exit exam xray it plainly said I had bullos changes but nobody told me. The doctor that did my c/p exam checked the box that said that It was more than likely that not service connected. he use the rAtional of the xray during the exit exam IN APRIL OF 92. Does it sound like I will get 100% because my doctor says Im totaly disablrd and I have applied for ss disabilty as well?
