    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

Evidence Requested Is Past Due



On my ongoing claim for increase in compensation, ebenefits shows the "evidence requested from others" as past due. The evidence requested shows it was sent to a VA medical facility, and was due yesterday, Sept 3rd.

Will their failure to apparently submit evidence to their own agency slow my claim down??? I have been battling this for a long time, and am fed up with how long this has taken. I was told at my 2nd C&P exam, again, that they had everything needed and there was no need to submit anything else (I brought it all along with me just in case).

I have submitted gobs of evidence and had two separate C&P exams for the same thing, and both exams say the same thing.

I'm sorry you're fed-up but, hey, that's life w/the VA. The missing records could slow it down some more. Remember the C&P exams aren't all they use. Ya know, maybe the adjudicator just needed to clear his/her desk and the quickest way was to request info "again." Remember it's an office type that makes the decision, not the C&P examiner. They get "their" evaluations on how fast they move paper from one pile to the next, not the quality of their work. jmo

I got the same message too regarding a claim.

I just ignored it.

I have learned nothing happens fast and all you can do is perfect your claim and tie up loose ends.

More than likely the evidence they requested has already been received and they have not updated Ebenefits.

Georgia is right on this one. My last claim which was done in Apr 14, said evidence past due. The RO had received everything but Ebennies was not up to date. Then a few weeks later my claim was finalized and I was increased from 80 to 100%. Nothing to worry about bud. Just try to breath and don't worry about it.
