    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

What's This ?


Sgt eve

Question

...... went to the rating board (again) as of October 5th BUT it was "brokered" to another office. An office that isn't as busy as the Houston office. maybe Muskogee. I call the 1-800 number to check on the status and one day the customer service lady will tell me to call at the end of the week, then I'll call at the end of the week and someone else will say give it 30-60 days. But both times I called they both said it was at the "rating board" so I guess that's got to be right, right?? LOL. Also, when they pull up your information when you call does it show the last time you called? Thank so much. Oh BTW 10/25 will be 1 year since I started. :blink:

"when you call does it show the last time you called" No they don't keep a record at all-

If they said it was at the rating board this is a good place for it to be.

Actually, I've called and been told that "well, you just called two days ago". I had talked to someone else. So, yes I do believe they do keep a log of when you've called.

If your file has been brokered to another rating office that is good. Only ready to rate file get brokered.

Time- did the vet rep recognize your voice?

I never had the impression that they log our calls but I can sure tell you that -in the 20 years dealing with this same VARO many of the vet reps know me-

My POA thinks it is because some of them remember I sued the VA. But I just think when you have claims there for years -some of them remember you.

At this point, after 3 1/2 years, I never hesitate to call them at least every 2 weeks as my claim status has changed in the last 2 months so at least I think they are doing something.
