    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

I.u Claim Status



Spoke to VA today and was told my claim has been decided and is going to the rater. This is an I.U claim, what does rating have to do with it? I thought they either yes or no I.U. Anybody have any experience with this? Already S.C'd at 80% including heart at 60% so what is this "going to the rater" have to do with I.U??????

I think they will establish an effective date for the IU. Someone has to make a rating decision granting IU or denying it and give you the reasons.

Dont mean to whip this to death but......

I'm trying to read into what i was told by phone and email , that a decision has been made on this IU claim, whether this means the decision was positive.

If the decision on an IU claim is denial, what would be the purpose of sending a denied claim to a rater?

Just trying to stoke some hope here, that being that decision made/sent to rater=s claim approved but detail like starting date has to be determined.

Am I reading too much into the info? :blink:

When I was a service officers one of the tricks we used to get answers before we received a letter, was to call the va and ask when you would receive the first check. If the claim was won the answer was usually the following month, if not the clerk would indicate they had not information at the time... try it .. just act as if you know the claim was won when you call.....
