    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

Ro Vscm Sent Me A Status Of Dependents


BoonDoc

Question

I have told you all that I sent in my NOD concerning IU last month. I asked for a "De Novo Review" and gave new information as to why their denial reasons are wrong.

I got a letter today from the VSCM at my RO (same lady who sent me my DRO letter last week) asking me to update my dependent status. I've never had the VA send me one of these, and it has kinda struck me by surprise. When my son, who is in Iraq, turned 18 the VA sent me a letter telling me that in 3 months he would be turning 18, and payments would be ending on his birthday month. I never had to fill out anything, they had it in their computer system.

It says that if I dodn't complete it and send it in within 60 days I will loose dependent pay for my wife and 2 kids at home.

I wonder if this has anything to do with my appeal, or is just a random update of my records.

Have any of you been getting letters like this after you filed an appeal, or anyother time?

I think it would be just a record update since you are 100% already. More VA paperwork, but do as they want and make copies and send CMRRR(certified mail).

JR Reihs,

I'm not 100% yet, I'm in the appeals process now. I applied for IU, and was denied, but I sent in clear information that should clear up the issue in my favor.

I called in to the 800# and verified my dependents, and I copied it and will send it in certified mail, so they can't cut me off payment for my dependents.

Thanks for the input!

Yep- it is standard procudre to check once in a while on dependents, and even marital status etc---

I got a VA letter-after being widowed for almost 12 years-asking me if I had remarried.

I just had to check the box that said no and send it back to them.

I sure hope that's it!

Either way I didn't want to wait and forget about it, so I completed it and sent it back registered priority mail yesterday.
