    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

Will Someone Help Me With This Question ?


carlie

Question

While a vet has some claim issues currently pending at the BVA Appeal level --

is the VARO allowed to continue to evaluate and provide rating decisions - on other issues that the veteran currently has pending on the VARO level ?

I feel like I should already know the answer but can't remember.

Thanks to all,

carlie

Carlie:

I don't know the answer for sure I know that issues can be deferred but it seems that VA has been pretty consistent of using any excuse to hold or delay.

I have two claims that have been pending since July 05. My formal appeal was not received by my RO until Mar 06. Now they tell me that the reason that my two new claims are almost 18 months old is that I filed an appeal and I must know that I have only one file which has been at the Appeals Management area since Mar 06 so there is no way they have been able to work on my new claims. Looks like although the RO still has the file they are intent on dragging out the decision on the new claims until we get through the BVA with my appeal.

Also I have seen several post on hadit which stated that they have had their video teleconference with BVA. During the meeting they have asked specific questions which were met with "we do not have your file yet therefore I have not reviewed it". Now if this is true is this not a waste of time for everyone involved. Holding a conference without having the file there in front of them is useless for all involved. Well I guess stranger things have happend during the claims processing model for VA.

"we do not have your file yet therefore I have not reviewed it"

I see a procedural error here. All evidence should be at the hearing, which includes your claim file.
