    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

Question

I'm a late life dad with >30% SC. I get a additional amount for a child. Now that he is 18 and enrolled in Community College I wonder if I will get a reduction in compensation. He is working part time and waiting now for the spring term to begin. I am anticipating the letter telling me of my reduction in comp $$. Am I correct?

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Yes, it ceases on his 18th birthday. If they over pay you they will want to recover that money also.

That's not correct. Since he's going to college you can be paid until a dependent is 23.

Pete,

It's all coming back to me now. They added same amount wife drew for each child over 18 still in school. When I got Chapter 35 they had a choice Dad keep getting $ 140 (or whatever) or each of them getting a check in excess of $800 a month. That was easy to figure out. Thanks Pete, after reading you reply I remembered how all that worked. Man it's bad to be nearly sixty, have PTSD & only part of your mind works.

Thanks for correcting me. Can you also clarify the issue of dependent receiving Chapter 35 benefit and dependency status, for me? Does veteran lose dependent pay if dependent is receiving Chapter 35 money and if so why? Thanks.

Sure, when you are 100% either by IU and P&T or 100% schedular your dependent can apply for chapter 35 benefits which is presently $827 per month for full time student. The 827.00 is sent directly to the dependent and this is when you will not receive any money for that dependent in your disability pay.
