Harley-1,

Contact USAA insurance and see if they can help you. I had been with Georgia Farm Bureau for over twenty years and they increased my homeowner's insurance by 40% last year and I had never filed a claim with them. I switched my home and my vehicles to USAA and saved almost $1,000.00. USAA is veteran friendly and highly rated by consumer reports.

I live in Florida. Even the government home insurance rips off the homeowners. Our home and flood insurance is a scandal. If we have a hurricane most of the people who have insurance will be waiting a long time to get a dime. Citizens is the name of the state operated insurance and they are broke. My private insurance company is little more than fire insurance. They would go belly up if we had a Katrina.

Must be a state issue........I have had KY Farm Bureau for over tewnty years, this year my rate dropped from almost 1100 to 779 per year. I was skeptical, cuz the new ploicy took me from a 250 deductible to a 1000 as they no longer offer the 250. I went to my agent to make sure my coverage was still the same and it was.....a few weeks later my car insurance was renewed, I had just bought a new truck, and that policy decreased 23 bucks per month for 3 vehicles with full coverage....Go figure.

I have to +1 the USAA. I got tired of continued rate increases with my previous homeowners and my auto. I did a little research and by combining both with USAA I save close to $1000 a year. However I will have to say, the raised my rates this past renewal with no explaination other than "Texas requirements caused the increase. My Homeowner is a shade over $1200 on a home value of $315,000. I do have the 1000 deductable on most things. A couple of areas are only $250. My auto is not any cheaper than my previous insurance company, but that said, I had to sue my own insurance on an accident where I was a pedesterian. I then was rear ended where I slowed for a major fire on the hwy, and the guy behind me never took his foot off the doing 65-70 when he rearended me. (was he texting??). The worse part is I was on a motorcycle. We both had the same insurance company. I have been in a lawsuit with them for over 2 years now. So with the reputation of USAA I don't mind paying the same or a little more to NOT have to deal in court anytime I have a claim, especially when neither was my fault. Insurance is not always about the lowest price.

      While the BVA has some discretion here, often they "chop up claims".  For example, BVA will order SERVICE CONNECTION, and leave it up to the VARO the disability percent and effective date.  

      I hate that its that way.  The board should "render a decision", to include service connection, disability percentage AND effective date, so we dont have to appeal "each" of those issues over then next 15 years on a hamster wheel.  
    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
