    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

Question About Percentage

Question

Guest HolliGreen

Hi all, does anyone know why a veteran rated at 90% is paid at the 100% rate? Calling the CDVA would be an excercise in futility, same with the VSO. Thank you. H.G.

More information is required to answer your question. Is the 90% rating from one disability? What is the disability? Is the veteran considered unemployable?

Generally if a veteran reaches the 90% level on a schedular rating (by use of VA math the veterans disabilities add up to a TRUE 90% or greater disability not a rounded to 90% rating) the veteran can be moved to the 100% level. It would depend on what the disability/disabilities is/are and what was requested by the veteran or awarded by the VA.

TDIU is the term you are looking for. The Vet is 90% Sc and is paid at the 100 pecent rate based on individual unemployability.

Or as jstacy has just pointed out the vetran can be considered Totally Disabled based on Individual Unemployability (TDIU)

70% mental disorder

10% DMII

10%PN L. foot

10% PN R. foot

10% PN L. hand
