    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

Partial Success



When on ebenefits and its showing 80% on my award.. I was at 70%. The file is still showing gathering of evidence though and they set me up for a C&P in the next 2 weeks. I had a 0 percentage for shoulder and they gave me 20% effective 9/2014..when I filed the claim.. I did that thing where i requested they make a decision on the claim.. Because I have never received compensation for this will they go back prior to 9/2014?

I believe the effective date for an increased rating is the date the claim was filed for the increase which in your case would be 09/2014. JMO

Congratulations and good luck.

Congrats on the win bud, and great news to hear that the new Decide Claim function on Ebenefits actually works. Georgia is right on bud, the increase is only paid beginning the following month of award, no retro.

I may not even get back pay for the time I applied because the claim is still open.. They have to evaluate other things I requested. They granted me 20% more but the others are still pending.. So will I get the back pay for 80% now or do I have to wait till the claim is closed? Anybody have experience with this situation?

yes, just had a claim in which they made two partials and then the final award and all three times i was back paid to the claim date. Took over three week period to finalize. You'll should get retro in the bank within three to five days.

Congrats man on the win!!!
