    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.
     
     
    Examples:
     
    • 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

0% + 0% = ?

Question

I know I heard somewhere that two 0% rated conditions equate to 10%. Is this true? Also, what about situations where there are even more multiple 0% rated conditions.....like 3 or 4 of them?

Just a thought.

Mark

Sorry bud, I have close to 10 0%s, and they don't add up to nothing, atleast I have not read anywhere in my 4 claim packets that they were anything other than 0s. Remember that if those SC conditions get worse, you can always submit for an increase.

You can be denied and still received SC at 0%....but its a good start so all is not lost!

keep the date/letter if you were 0% SC

(Keep in safe place)

Did they say you were denied for increase but still remain 0% SC for the disability you was seeking increase?

§3.324 Multiple noncompensable service-connected disabilities.

Whenever a veteran is suffering from two or more separate permanent service-connected disabilities of such character as clearly to interfere with normal employability, even though none of the disabilities may be of compensable degree under the 1945 Schedule for Rating Disabilities the rating agency is authorized to apply a 10-percent rating, but not in combination with any other rating.

[40 FR 56435, Dec. 3, 1975]

What is most importance to keep in mind with this reg is that - if there is already compensable SC in place -

then the 10% for two or more SC'd at zero rating, does not apply.

Mark,

Since you already hold a compensable level of SC - the reg for multiple SC'd at zero %

does not apply in your situation.
