    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

I am still having problems.on ebenefits .

On Sat I got a blackberry email message from the Director of my VARO telling me that my claims were denied and that she wants to 'discuss' the denials with me by phone on Monday., because she was out of the office.

I sent a copy of her email to Ms Hickey.

I dont need anyone to 'explain' their decision.

I have not received any decision in the mail yet.

My VARO in over 20 years had NEVER sent me a proper initial decision.I won them all ,so I am not discouraged.

And as someone said here "Haste Makes Waste" with some of these decisions that are coming from input to and from Ms. Hickey, from claimants.

When my RO called me last week asking me to send back the 5103 letter I had just received, I had the impression they had already made the decision.

I wanted to fill out the Survey thing that popped up at ebenefits and tell them, as a new user., I already have determined that ebenefits sucks.

The survey said it would appear after I finished on ebenefits but never appeared for me to fill out.

Has anyone here filled out that survey?

Did it disappear when you wanted to fill it out?

BVA surveys never disappear. I always rate the BVA site as high as I can,when I get their survey pop ups..

I have learned as much from BVA decisions, whether denials, awards or remands,

as I have from reading the actual regulations, because BVA decisions show how the regs are implemented.on each decision they make.

Unlike our VAROs, their legal teams read Everything in our C files and all of our evidence.

But ...question....

Does the Letters thing in ebenefits hold a copy of their decisions?

I get a temoralily out of service error message on anything I try to open there.

Ms Berta

I never have sighed up for ebenefit's for the same reason and problems you are experiencing ... I always just used snail mail with all sign return receipts & phone calls but seems a lot of veterans are having success emailing or calling the New VA Secretary Bob or Ms Hickely

I never had anything good to say about E-Ben, always seemed like a waste of time, never any up to-date info. i apologize to E-Ben effective immediately. Went on last week, can't believe all the New and Improved info available. Award Letters etc. Besides using VONAP to file claims, E-Ben has a great deal to offer all Vets. Maybe the VA is actually trying to help, I think so.
