    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?”

    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

Ssoc Extension Of 30 Days

I never asked for an extension on that. Personally, I wouldn't count on them notifying me at all. I kept asking for an extension of time to submit evidence, and they just kept telling me they would take it into consideration -- and notify me - but no one did. (That was on IRIS).

How much longer do you have before your time is up?

I just got mine and it said the same thing. My advocate and I agreed that what they changed was a good rating for me and we are withdrawing our appeal to the BVA.

When you receive your SOC, you have 60 days in which to file your VA Form 9 completing the substantive appeals process. If you filed the F-9 with any new and material evidence, they have to review it, make another decision up or down and then send you a SSOC confirming it is still denied. You are not required to answer a SSOC but if you have more new evidence, you can always submit it to the BVA once the claim is certified and moved to DC. If you wish to answer the SSOC, you have 30 days in which to do so before they begin packing up the file for shipment to DC.

To me, the SSOC is concrete proof that the RO is never going to give you a fair shake or a grant at the eleventh hour. No guarantees at the BVA either but certainly better odds.

Well, I am in a bit of a pickle now. My POA is out of the office until the 30th and my 30 days end on the 25th. I am going to have to go to the VA and see the benefits rep Wednesday to ask for advice (scary). In my SSOC they gave me the rating I feel that I deserved but they only went back until 2011. We filed the NOD in 2009 and the appeal started in 2008. if I file another NOD on the timeline for back pay will it keep them from raising my percentage rating? I could really use the back pay right now but I don't want to be cheated out of that significant amount of money.
