    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.
    • 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

Should I Send In A Response For Support Of Claim?



Hubby's claim is right at end, pending decision approval, and I was told only waiting for manager to sign off, and I have no idea what that means. Of course no one will actually tell us what happended. Claim is for defered tinnitus secondary to hearing loss ( hearing loss rated as 0) meneier's disease secondary to DMII, increase in hearing loss, and VFW added ED. He had C&P in Dec for ED and the very next day decision was made (I don't know if this is good or bad sign) 800 number says everything has been addressed. ED put in May 2012. My question is that since he hasn't sent in the support of claim letter for ED should we wait on it. It will only be statement of hubby and myself. I have been told the reason a claim goes back to gathering information, from being up further on chain, is that any piece of paper the VA receives pushes it into gathering of information. Since it appears to be at end, I don't want to hold up anything. I thought we would wait and see what decision is before adding in lay opinion. It doesn't involve any medical evidence. Hubby hasn't really said to much to docs about the ED. Also for info, we were able to get copy of C & P's at medical records office. Waiting on pins and needles. He is 100%, but he needs new condition, for disabled vets insurance. I of course have been calling 800 number and had gotten a full range of replys, some infer things without saying them, and I don't know if that's worst because I read into things to much. I hope everyone's claims move faster in coming year, good new year for all.

Thanks for advise, much appreciated. I have to call VFW on 26th, VFW said they might see something in computer then. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for SMC K, he gets S now, but the main thing is getting rated for any new condiition, even if it's rated at 0 percent. I know someone asked if they should continue with claims once they are 100%, I will let them know, because that is what we did.

The bottom line is the longer you wait to submit a new claim ( and if the claim is approved), the more compensation you lose out on. VA pays compensation from the time the claim is submitted..... I advocate you put the claim in asap. The va doesn't always hold you a decision on a claim just because it received evidence of a new claim.. even if it does ... wouldn't you rather have all the compensation that is owed to you rather than lose one penny....
