    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

Request New C&p With Nod



I just got my decision for an increase. Went to 30% from 10%. Four other contentions rated SC with 0%. All for various skin cancers

They over looked VA doctors notes about cancers still in treatment and pending more surgery.

I would like to request a C&P to use as evidence with my NOD. is this permissible?

Could be wrong but don't remember reading about any Vet requesting a C&P. C&P's are ordered by VARO Rating Dept. I think your in for a possible NOD DRO Review or Hearing as long as you get the "New & Material Evidence" to back up the SC % you believe you should be rated at. What evidence do you currently have that was not available to the VA Rater at the time of the original decision? What and why do you think the awarded SC% is wrong? In your Award letter the Rater explained why you were rated at 0% and not a higher rating, right. What was mentioned in regards to being necessary for a higher rating and are you sure you have those requirements covered?

On the advice of the DAV guy I wrote the RO and asked for reconsideration on new evidence.

I would immediately file the NOD and get a step closer to sending the case to the BVA.

In my opinion a reconsideration can be a good maneuver; however they can ignore the reconsideration request and let your one year appeal period lapse.

There are several good articles on HADIT regarding NOD's and getting cases certified to the BVA .

Im becoming convinced the BVA is the preferred route especially if the NOD wont be heard for more than 2+ years and a eventual denial.

With the backlog, appeals are not a priority and I think regional offices might be rushing through NOD's.

I hope not, but my intuition tells me otherwise.
