    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

Iu Claim And Ab8



Hello all. I am new to the site and have perused the forums but do not see my specific question. I filed a request for IU in Sep 2013. At that point I was combined 80% SC. Thursday of this past week I received a call out of the blue telling me I had to be present on Friday for a C&P exam. I was surprised at the no notice situation, and because I had a C&P exam in April. At the exam the Dr, told me, and showed me, that he was informing them that I am unemployable due to the severity of my cervical spine issues (SC) resulting in my inability to stand for any period of time and the inability to perform sedentary tasks. When I got home I checked Ebenefits to see if there was any reference to the appt. My status had already gone from gathering of evidence to pending decision approval, Within another hour it had gone to preparation for decision and closed! I checked my AB8 and it showed an increase to 90%. The amount showed the sum for 90% as well. Does this mean that even with C&P evaluator's assessment that I am unemployable in any capacity that they denied the IU request? Any input will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thanks for replying jbasser. I did look at the Benefits letter(AB8) in ebennies. That is where it shows the 90%, and the amounts both show the 90% amount, I think it was $1714.45. Since the dollar amount is for the 90% does that mean they denied the IU? Is that really likely when their examiner is the one that concurred with the unemployability? Regardless of the outcome, I thank you again for your expertise.

Congrats on the 90% bud. Either the VA RO did not agree with the Doc on the IU, or the VA deferred the IU to the future. Really no way of knowing without the Letter from the VA. Good luck

Thank you for all the input. In Ebennies there is no commissary letter, and the "Amount paid" and percentage are the same. I'll just wait for the letter as suggested and hope it was deferred rather than denied.
