    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?”

  • 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

A Few Vgli Questions


Nathan104

Question

I did a search but couldnt find exactly what I need.

I JUST found out about VGLI. It says that they send forms in order for you to transition from SGLI to VGLI, this is a LIE. I never got anything from them. If I had, I would have signed up within the 120 day window to switch no questions asked. Fortunately, Im still within the one year window but I now have to send in the proof of good health and answer the health questionaire about my conditions and VA ratings.

Does anyone know how easily they reject people? Im rated at 50%, with 20% being for hypertension, had two sugeries in the last year (knee,lumbar spine), have several other rated conditions including insomnia, IBS, acid reflux,back,knee,etc. Im afraid I will be rejected. Is there any way to tell them I was not notified like I was supposed to have been or does that just not matter?

Also, a small question about the sign up form itself.

One of the questions is

"If you have not been able to work since leaving the service, is this due to disability incurred while in the service?" I put yes.

Then it asks,

"Military Disability Rating ________ (NOT your VA compensation rating)

Ok, Im just trying to understand the above. I am rated at 50% by the VA. I was rated at 10% by the Army when they discharged me due to disability. This confuses me because it doesnt say (NOT your VA DISABILITY rating), it says compensation rating. So, what the heck should I put here? 10% or 50%?

Also dont hesitate to go to the Inquery page and under insurance, ask them any question you dont understand.
