    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

Special Correspondence

Question

I checked E Benefits today and it is saying my claim is complete. Date closed 12-21-2012.

Under Updates it says "Appeal is possible. Decision notification sent".

I never received a C&P that was directed by the BVA over a year ago. I hope this doesn't mean another denial. That would really piss me off after working on this claim almost 7 years.

Anyone know what this might mean.

On 11-14-2012 it says type of claim "Special Correspondence". Whatever that means.

Status has changed. New evidence received.

Another thing that is bothering me is I went from "Claim Received" directly to "Complete" in a little over a month. It skipped all the other phases. This does not look good to me at all. And like I said earlier.They did not schedule a C&P exam. I don't get it.

Could this be a quick denial? And after I sent in a ton of new evidence.

Guess I am being a little paranoid. Probably won't get anything until after Christmas.

bm,

The BVA may have granted something as SC'd and then this

goes back to your VARO and they determine currently level

of evaluation percentage and effective date/s.

Just a guess in a positive light.

At least, this is what I hope is happening for you.

Carlie,

Thanks for your input. I hope your right. I just can't believe they would deny me without a C&P exam.

I'll keep my fingers crossed and wait on pins and needles for the letter.

Another thing I want to add. My claim and appeal has been at the Oakland RO for almost 7 years and it was finally transferred to a satellite RO closer to my city. Seems to be moving a lot quicker ever since they moved my claims to this new RO. I hope this is good news for me.....finally.

On E Benefits under "Complete" it says the VA is sending a decision to you by US mail.

Complete Date - 12/21/2012

Phase Start date - 12/21/2012. What does the Phase Start date mean?

"Estimated Phase Complete date" . At this time your RO is unable to provide an estimated completion date for this type of claim.

And shouldn't I have received an AB8 letter if I was approved?

I know, don't rely on anything that E Benefits says.

"Appeal is possible. Decision notification sent".

Is a "cut and paste". There was a decision made. (maybe, since E-benefits is not usually accurate or timely.)

Until you have the notification letter in your hand, a check, or occasionally money in the bank,

there is no way to tell.

Chuck is right.

" Appeal is possible" can regard a denial as well as an award letter.
