    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

% Of Appeals And Remands Won At Varo Levels



Does anyone know of any statistics showing the % of claims won and overturned that have been remanded back to the VARO, or 5 of appeals won by claimants at BVA level. Just wondering while waiting for my decisions.

If you type this into your computer, it will bring up all the cases at the BVA and you can read as many cases as you like and be sure to type in your disability and 2006.

I have been to the BVa and was remanded to The Appeals Management Center

Knight Ridder did an investigative report some time ago as to remand rates-:


Numerous Remands have been caused by Regional Office failures to send the veteran proper VCAA Notice.

If you go to the BVA web site and search you will see what I mean.

I did some investigation of my own POAs remands because I never received VCAA notice.

In a few months of 2006 most of their remands were due to VCAA violation.

It seems to me and I complained to my POA -that this can beavoided right away by the vet rep questioning the lack of proper notice.

As I understand it, the vet rep gets a copy of the actual VCAA noice sent to the claimant. If it is not legal, they should pounce on this error.

It is against VA case law and regulations to deny a valid claim BEFORE VCAA notice is received by the claimant.

I got a Remand in 51 days due to this error in my claim -I received no support from my POA yet the fast remand shocked them.I had to explain to them the VCAA.

My VAROs remand rate is 41 %.
