    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

Va Fiduciary Mess


Berta

Question

VA Fiduciary program. A request.....

To follow up on the Dec 19th SVR show with Notable Veterans Lawyer, Doug Rosinski, this is a link to his Sept 2012 testimony to the H VAC -Sub Comm D & M regarding the VA fiduciary Mess:

http://veterans.hous...y/doug-rosinski

I posted this here about 1 year ago,it bears seeing the video again:

:http://www.wtsp.com/...vers-up-mistake

And here is the latest Justice Dept release :

http://www.chron.com...ing-3838605.php

(email release VAOIG)

Although many fiduciary arrangements are not problematic, the reality is the VA has immense control over the established compensation benefits paid to any veteran the VA has declared 'incompetent'.

It is no secret that a few years ago the news started to break,that VA had given convicted felons the right to be fiduciary agents for veterans. VA had failed to perform even the most simple background check on them.

The lack of substantial oversight in the VA fiduciary program has turned many veterans and their spouses into complete victims,unable to spend or make decisions over a rightful compensation benefit,that belongs to the 'incompetent' veteran,and not to the VA.

The link to contacting your state's Senators is here:

They need input from YOU.

One of my Senators, Chuck Schumer has stated his position thus:

http://www.troyrecor...0f159608787.txt

If you take the time to contact your Senators about HR 5948, The Veterans Fiduciary Reform Act of 2012, and tell them why they must pass this bill, you could be making a difference to the lives of many veterans, and any vet,at some point, could find themselves in a fiduciary situation,if VA deems them incompetent, ….....so do this for yourself and your dependents as well.

We should all act NOW.

The House passed HR 5948, but the Senate most probably won't unless they hear from you!

Your Senators are a few mere clicks away:
