    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

I Year And 1 Day


Sgt eve

Question

Today has been 1 year and 1 day since my claim was received at VA. My file finally went to the rating board (again) on Oct 5th. It really makes me disgusted the Vets get treated like cattle. They'll brand us when they feel like it. :) I called the 800# today and "it still is at the rating board and call back end of November"! Last time I called they told me to call this week, now end of November. What is the probelm down there? I know there are a lot of claims but I work in a very high demand/high stress and most of all short employees but we get the job done and in a very timely matter, even if we wrok some overtime. IT'S OUR JOB, WHAT WE GET PAID TO DO! I went to my thearipst today and she officially said again that I suffer from PTSD. I guess I'll wait till this claim is complete then put new claim in for PTSD.

Eve, you are correct. Do not file a new claim now for it will definatly effect the other claim at the rating board. Maybe even add a year or more.

You'll never see a VA employee missing their "break time" in the name of work.

If they miss their break than they get mad,call the union and the union comes in they have a series of meetings thus taking more time away from Veterans claims.
