    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

Question

What does this mean as far as...the AMC goes. I called today and was told that my case was closed a descision was made, and that they were waiting for SSOC. I asked if it meant suplemental statement of the case and was told no, not on this end. The lady was really nice and told me she would call me back later to try and find someone there to help her dig deeper into my case/files/descision and call me back, but I am not holding my breath. All I can think of is they denied my claim again...thanks

I went to check on ebenefits about my appeal status and it says closed 12/31/12.

Yea, thats what I feel. Although I have been denied before and given the reasoning behind the denial, i wonder if they would give reasoning as to why they decide to grant? Wishful thinking though.

I guess it must be heading back to BVA for the final say?? It was remanded to the amc from bva in july, so???

Googled it and came up with some scenarios....Based off of my original claim and what the BVA remanded to the amc: A: Was caused or incurred in service B: was made worse or aggravated by SC ptsd. If either one of these are denied then a SSOC is generated. So, just maybe, the A scenario will be granted and the B scenario was denied, therefore SSOC generated. So, maybe a partial grant could be in order?

ok, so I just looked at Ebenefits again and it changed to RED and administration processing. I called the AMC and was told that my claim was closed on 12/31/12 and it is now at the BVA. I was not given a SSOC.....so what does this mean. My remand said that if my claim continues to get denied that the RO is supposed to supply me with a SSOC and time to respond before it goes back to BVA....any takers????

Just got a call from AMC, and was told that an SSOC was sent out, but never returned back. I call BS!!!!! I have been calling the AMC frequently to get status on my appeal, and nothing was ever mentioned about an SSOC being sent to me. Only that a rater was looking at my appeal!! The lady also said she saw nothing on her screen that indicated a SSOC was ever sent to me. Can O" Worms here. She told me that she would get with a supervisor there and find out what was going on, even though it was sent back to BVA 12-31-12, (without my rebuttal to SSOC,if it was needed). It appears that this appeal is going to get even more f'ed up because I have no idea as to what was on the SSOC or if there were anything else needed to resolve my appeal. It looks like my only hope is that someone at BVA will look through the evidence on record and make a correct fair decision.

What normally does a SSOC have on it?
