    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

100% Temp Disability Rating



Hey everyone I have a question if you can help it would be greatly appreciated. I was awarded 100% temporary last year July and have a future exam date of August 2019. It states on my VA letter not considered perm due to scheduled future exam for reduction. Does that mean that they are automatically going to reduce my rating no matter what? Or they have to do an evaluation to see if I have gotten better, worse or stayed the same? I am bipolar and suffer with depression, insomnia, as well as hear voices, I take prescribed meds but they don't seem to help at all. I am just curious to see if anyone else have went through being 100% temp to 100% P&T.

Oh I forgot to mention they only have me down for MDD I put in for BPD after I was diagnosed in June of last year which the doc said I should have been diagnosed with along with MDD in the first place. Because I was already at a 100% by the time they seen my claim for BPD they didn't rate it. I have hopes to get better but as of now it seems I'm on another downwards spiral. Look forward to seeing all responses.

The 5 year reevaluation for reduction is not unusual for a temporary rating. It does not mean you will be reduced. You will only be reduced if there is significant improvement of your service connected condition(s). One suggestion is to maintain a continuity of appointments and treatment for your service connected conditions. A lot of vets are rated 100% temp before receiving 100% P & T.

Good luck to you.

I was awarded 100% Temporary, just last year and I was not due for a Review on those conditions until Feb 2016. Well when I submitted my recent FDC in Nov 14, I think the VA thought that I was rocking the boat, and all of a sudden in Feb 2015, the VA requested a Review for most of my SC %s. Well those exams were hard core, especially the PTSD Review which lasted over 2 hours. Well it looks like it will back fire in the VA's face, because it looks like most %s will continue, and a few might even get Increased. What I am trying to say, is that, just continue your Medical Care and you will be fine. When the time comes up to be Reviewed, then you will just go in there and be honest with the C&P Review Docs. You will be fine bud. Good luck and God Bless!!!

The VA may be acting kinda like the old IRS was. Decades ago, my grandmother passed, and my father was the sole survivor. One of the assets

involved was stock ownership of a privately held company, amounting to about 10%. (No market for the stock, and it was actually worth whatever someone was willing to pay for it.

A fight ensued with the IRS as to the actual value. Eventually, the stock was finally sold back to the company for considerably less than the IRS thought it was worth.

As a result, the IRS audited my fathers returns for five years in a row. Each time, it ended up that a refund was due.
