    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

Claim Status Keeps Changing

Question

Hi all,

I have not been around for awhile. I won SC for PAD non-compensable. So I but in a NOD with my ALSO last October to get compensation. I was called for a C&P, ultra sound on my legs, last Friday.

Friday ebenefits showed the claim Prep for Decision and I was requested to fill out VA Form 21-8940 Veterans Application for Increased Compensation Based on Unemployability.

Today benefits, today, is back to GOE. Anyone has some input as to what my be going on and why I was asked to fill out the 21-8940?

Sincerely,

Hugh

That is just how it works bud. I filed my current FDC in Nov 14, it was Prep for Decision from Dec14-Jan15, then it went back to Gather of Evidence and a bunch of C&Ps in Feb 15, then claim went back to Prep for Decision, where it has been for over a month. Just crazy how the VA and Ebenefits works. Good luck and just try to keep sane. God Bless!!!

Well I can't believe what I just saw in ebenefits. I looked at my verification of benefits letter and it was dated today with a 90% combined disability rating. OMG!!!

Hugh,

Since they asked you to fill out the 21-8940, it looks to me like you are being considered for TDIU. Hopefully, your 90% combined rating will be paid at the TDIU 100% rating soon.

Congratulations on the 90% rating and good luck with TDIU.

Thanks GP, the letter indicates 90% with $1991.71 a month. I do not want 100 %.

Hugh,

You must still be working. If you are able to work and have a good job, I understand why you do not want 100% at this time.

Good luck.

GP
