    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

Not bad news completely, the Remanded conditions, usually require the VA RO to look over the conditions and medical evidence, and either decide the claim or require you to go to new C&Ps. Just wait it out and see what happens. Good luck and God Bless!!! keep us posted

Thank you but before I continue let me say it is a Honor to be on board with some of the most Greatest Advocates of my time ,they Remanded the following Right Knee 1995,Left Knee 1999, Right Thumb 1999, TDIU Deferred until exams. As you can see I never gave up on these cause I know I have them dead to right and SSI Judge said that I am Unemployable since 1993 because of my Knees and right thumb/hand that was injured in Army/Service in 1983.

T: Are your claims alive from 1995? Your SC 50% would rule out a Scheduler IU Claim but there is always the Non-Scheduler but that has to be decided by the VA Comp Department Director. Do some research regarding SSI Vs VA ratings. The bid difference is SSI is all or nothing where as the VA has Stage ratings. The SSI award can help but doesn't mean your VA IU is a lock. You have to be able to prove you can't earn in excess of $12,400 (65) or $11,400 (66) individual earned income. These figures are what the VA raters look at. Unless your unable to do even Sedentary work verified by Medical and Employment Specialists, you could have a problem.

Did you use any type of Representation on your claims? Have you ever availed yourself of a couple FREE Legal consults with VA Accredited Appeals Lawyers? Your possible Retro has to be sky high after all these years. Free VSO assistance is good but there has to be a reason that your claims have gone on this long. Might be time to reconsider the 20% of Retro Lawyer fee to finally get this successfully awarded and put to bed.
