    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

Decision & Claiams File Dispatch



After waiting 3 years in appeal, I finally had my C&Ps on Dec 4 and Dec 10 (neuropathy and PTSD).

Today I noticed on EBenefits that my appeal shows: Decision & Claims File Dispatch: This indicates that BVA mailed the decision to you (and your representative, if any) and transferred your case to another location. I spoke with BVA and they indicated my file had been sent back to the RO for the "authorization stage". I never got a letter from BVA.

I know all of this is a process where patience is required but just interested of anyone's experience with this stage in the process. semper fi phil (email me if you like at plhusmc@gmail.com)

Do you have a vet rep? If so, have you called him/her?

DO you know when the BVA decision was made?

"I spoke with BVA and they indicated my file had been sent back to the RO for the "authorization stage"."

At least they didnt say "Remand" and it appears that BVA might have made an award.

It is so hard to speculate these days however.

Did you claim the neuropathy as secondary to an established SC disability?

I went back to your older posts and it does seem to indicate this would be an award for PTSD as well as the PN.

The C & P you had posted here for the PN states:


Service Connected Diabetes."

Are you an incountry Vietnam veteran?

If so I assume the DMII is due to AO.

I think the general consensus here was that the PTSD C & P yoou had posted would be in the 10-30% rating range and you can always appeal that if you feel it is way to low.

THanks Berta for your well reasoned response. I was in country just in time for the TET in 1968 and left Feb 1969. I appreciate the VA and grateful for the service I get from them but I'm just a little suspicious as to whether the C&P folks really have the Vets interest at heart.
