    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?”
     
    Note:
     
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.

    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

Question

Using the Benefits Delivery at Discharge (BDD), to file my VA claim on 2 Jan 13 for an Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (2010), Obstructive sleep apnea with CAP, Diabetes mellitus type II., Nonischemic dilated cardiomyopathy with history of congestive heart failure. All the mentioned issues were taken directly from my last MEB paper, but I was returned to duty. I am retiring from the Air Force after 25 years, now the waiting game begins. This site is a wealth of information. Thanks.

if you haven't submitted your claim yet, DO NOT DO A BDD CLAIM! these claims are taking up to 29 months. It's not to late, do a Fully Developed Claim, enclose a copy of all medical documentation to include any med board documents, sleep study results. If you have other medical documentation from a civillian doc, include that as well. Also include VA FM 21-526ez (FDC), VA FM-21-686c (dependency), ensure that you include a copy of your marriage certificate and each of your childrens birth certificate; VA FM 21-4138, on this form tell the VA that you are submitting a FDC and all supporting documents are included. An FDC claim is taking about 90 days, (30 days longer if you are retiring), send to the VARO in the state that you will reside in.
