    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

Does the new rule mean that aside from other things, if you are hospitalized and notify the RO, it doesnt make it an inferred claim, and you must fill out a form before they will acknowledge it is a claim? like if you had an emergency surgery like cancer or something, ?

I think you mean this regulation.....I am unaware of any "new" convalesence regulations...anyone else know?


I know that vets in the PTSD 21 day inhouse programs always traditionally had someone at the VAMC handle their temp 100% claims, if they already had an established rating for PTSD under 100%.

I dont know about anyone else not in a structured 21 day program but hospitalized for a SC for 21 days or more, or fitting into the regs above in another way.

like me, I fell ill with kidney cancer and had to get surgery quick, after recovery I filed a claim. It was service connected eventually but they didnt pay me temp 100 percent for the cancer. I would think thats an inferred claim. even though I didnt file a claim until after surgery. (they are trying to screw me on this one as well)

63SIERRA - Were you in a VAMC for your surgery?? If so, it would be considered an informal claim. As to a civilian hospital, I'm not sure but it would be worth looking into. jmo

Do you currently have any VA rating(s)??
