    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

Veterans Penalties V S. Va Amnesty

Question

Privacy and Security Statement

This U.S government system is intended to be used by [authorized VA network users] for viewing and retrieving information only, except a otherwise explicitly authorized. VA information resides on and transmits through computer systems and networks funded by VA. All use is considered to be with an understanding and acceptance that there is no reasonable expectation of privacy for any data or transmissions on Government Intranet or Extranet (non-public) networks or systems. All transactions that occur on this system and all data transmitted through this system are subject to review and action including (but not limited to) monitoring, recording, retrieving, copying, auditing, inspecting, investigating, restricting access, blocking, tracking, disclosing to authorized personnel, or any other authorized actions by all authorized VA and law enforcement personnel. All use of this system constitutes understanding and unconditional acceptance of these terms.

Unauthorized attempts or acts to either (1) access, upload, change, or delete information on this system, (2) modify this system, (3) deny access to this system, or (4) accrue resources for unauthorized use on this system are strictly prohibited. Such attempts or acts are subject to action that may result in criminal, civil, or administrative penalties.

Why is the veteran always subject to criminal, civil, or administrative penalties and VA workers are always given amnesty. I just logged onto ebenefits and I saw this post. VA workers are always given amnesty for destroying, shredding, losing, misleading government officials and anything else they can get away with but they get a slap on the wrist, very few are fired and even less go to jail but veterans must sign forms with a legal statement saying the information is true to the best of their knowledge. These are the same forms that government employees are destroying, shredding, throwing in the trash and they get amnesty and veterans go to jail. If VA forms are legal documents then VA employees should not get amnesty. How hard is it to do the right thing.

Actually, destroying government documents can be a crime. The problem is that government workers have, in general, immunity if the actions are related to the job.

And, who determines this? The government, and those that ordered the document destruction, who else!

For some years, I've felt that a veteran that was unlawfully denied benefits or had them withheld should be able to not only sue, but actually start

a criminal case for misuse of government funds.

I believe that the record "redaction" VA effort just a few years ago was intended to make such actions more difficult to impossible.
