    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

Scotter04

Scotter04,

Periodically check your "Benefit Summary Letter" under "Downloadable VA Letters" on Ebenefits. Usually any change in rating status shows up on the Benefit Summary Letter before the veteran receives the BBE or official notification from the VA. Once your status on ebenefits changes to "preparation for notification," I would start checking the "Benefit Summary Letter" daily. I would also start checking your direct deposit account for your retro at this point. I think you will receive a decision in a matter of weeks rather than months. JMO.

Glad to see your claim is moving bud, and good advice given by Georgia. My claim just went to Prep for Decision last week too. We should both know something in 4-6wks give or take. Good luck

Thanks guys, I also am a learner and wish I found this AWESOME site a long long time ago. I am learning something new each time I'm on here from everyone. I also know that I will need this site for years to come. Now to just sit back and check ebennies, yeah right. It will be a bit nerve racking. Good luck to you all, in your fight.

Scotter04,

Don't let it you get you down. I started off with a 10% award. Once you get your denial on the SA, post the info so Hadit members can offer suggestions to help you with an appeal.
