    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

Had C@p Exam This Afternoon

Guest jstacy


I had the exam this afternoon, Examiner was waiting for me and We spent about an hour. Very plesant. He had already studied all of the records as I took some of my copies with me. He examined me, took BP reading, It was 172/112. He said that was enough. He ask questions and very candidly said the RO should have rated it back in 1997 when they received the SMR.

He looked at Heart cath info and said the measurement of the ejection fraction from a heart cath outweighs one from a stress test since it is an actual measaurement.

As far as he was concerned, I should have been rated on the evidence already submitted.

Now for the VA mathmeticians, What does the following equal.

Don't you already receive 100% Service connection. How can you go more than that?

I see retr-pay back to 1994 for you, which should be quite a bit of money for you.

Shouldn't it be?

This would definitely be Cue as we discussed last night.

I will leave this one for the math experts for the benefit amt.

Glad to hear of the good news. Wish that your blood pressure was lower, it is a tad on the high side, actually it is more than a little high on the tad side!!.

Will your private physician be increasing or changing your blood pressure meds? He may need too.

I am so sorry to hear that the meds are not working for your blood pressure.

Yes, your finally awaited 100% is coming with your long awaited retro-pay. You have definitley proved your cue claim.

God Bless,

Please get your BP down. Did you not take your meds before the exam or do you have anxiety that makes BP go up?

ALso I think that you need to be very careful cause asking for TDIU at this moment may cause you to lose back pay.

Hang in there. Remember you can appeal any award or decison made.
