    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?”

  • 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

Please Call Your Congress Person


paulcolrain

Question

AFTER AN EMAIL TO ALLISON AND HER TAKING CARE OF MY PLUS SO MANY HERE ISSUES I ASK FOR ALL THE PERSONS ON THIS FORUM TO PLEASE CALL THERE CONGRESS PERSON ON THIS ONE ISSUE::::: PAY IT FORWARD AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for this good, kind and thoughtful note. I genuinely appreciate it. I am looking at the idea of the case managers in the ROs but need more people to do that still. I requested 1700+ people last summer in the choice act but Congress didn’t give it to me. I also know that if we wanted to make sure that every Veteran got through the call centers and that I could also build in experienced staff into the call centers for more difficult issues – it would take another 578 people – which I will say outloud to anyone who will ask.

We need more people to take care of you all the way you need and deserve and frankly the way we can sustain for our hard working employees who are working way too much Overtime.

Get the word out – Congress needs to help us 1700+ 578! That’s a small bill to pay to take care of 22 million living Veterans.

It would be helpful but Service Organizations will fight to keep status quo. Just like they did when we were finally allowed to get lawyers.

They would benefit so much from having some kind of experienced case managers to help Veterans through the process. I remember when I first got out in 1994 going to the local VSO for help in filing my claim and he screwed it up so bad that it took me until 2004 get a rating and I got 2 years back pay. I only got that back then because I switched to an attorney who re-did everything. My attorney now is not even fighting for all I could get so I have taken upon myself to use hadit to help me file my appeal on the one thing I am contesting, which is the retro pay date. There are great people on here who have given me excellent advice.
