    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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

Ebenefits: "appeal Is Possible"?



Does anyone know what "Appeal is Possible" means, besides the fact that they're saying an appeal is possible? Lol. This is from eBenefits. I keep seeing this message, but the dates keep getting pushed back, so my letters have not arrived, so I keep waiting. "Decision Notification Sent" has said that for a a couple of months. I'm just curious if this means my NOD is going to a BVA now? When I click on View Board of Veteran's Appeals status, it just shows what it always had, that it was "current" and still at the local VA office. The 2 dates on 9/12/12 are for an NOD & Dependency claim. The other date 9/1/11 was when I retired & they deferred a B/P claim on my initial claim letter. Isn't an appeal always possible before it goes to the BVA? Mine is/was just in the NOD phase currently. Thanks for any help!

An appeal is always "possible" for awards as well as denials.

Hard to read anything more into that VA statement in your e benefits account.

A pure "remand" is not appealable until it goes through the system, that is, it is "remanded" to the lower agency and that agency makes a decision.

If your decision is partially denied, partially remanded, you can still appeal the denied issues.

A remand is not appealable as it is not final, and you have to have a decision to appeal.

Seems like they are stating an appeal is possible, due to the fact of the decision that is to be made...however as we know an appeal is always possible but granting is another decision,

and you can appeal that decision with a NOD and state what you want...but you may never get what you want but do not give up...keep trying!!
