    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

C And P For Ptsd/mst



Had my CnP last week. My doc was a retired AF psy doc. 77 year old and he asked a lot of questions and pretty much grilled me! It lasted about 90min. He was very blunt but at the end of the exam told me that if they deny me it won't be because of him. He stated the VA is going to have a hard time with the evidence which there is none, but that he would do up a detailed letter along with my CNP exam and help me out. Praying it won't get denied...

My C+P doc recommended 100% for PTSD due to MST. But I just read a post where a vet was recommended 100% but VARO knocked it down to 50%. What % of the time does VARO go with C+P results?

I was at the VA. I'm sure everything is electronic now. It's a waiting game again . Anxious about getting the C+P done now anxious about final decision.

If I were you I would be happy but also get a copy of his exam. If it was done at a VARO you can usually get the write up within a few days.

Same here...glad the C&P is over with. Mine was pretty tough. I've heard of fellow vets exams lasting only minutes. Mine was 1.5 hours. Well now it's up to the VA. Hope you win Mike. Let me know when your status changes. Mine is still at the gathering evidence phase.

Hi mine went from pending notification to gathering evidence but I've learned from hadit that this is a good sign that they're reviewing my C&P results. No call from VA on potential fiduciary home visit yet.
