    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 think TDIU for sure.

wait... we have a dom in my area at the Bath VAMC. Those PTs often but not always deal with the Buffalo VARO.

I had been dealing with Buffalo RO for the last 2 decades or more...

I think this should be an award of TDIU, but I have no faith in their ability to read at this RO.

Then again you might be dealing with a different RO.

Dont forget, regardless of where the claim is, they have to follow remands to the letter.

If they dont you can complain via IRIS.

I think you should be optimistic however because the evidence is strong there for TDIU.,in my opinion.

medical C&P.txtHi everyone,
Its been since 2000 that i have been back and forth with VA claims, conditions have worsen and i have been back and forth with VA with contentions in ref: to increase, reopen, new and unemployability, I have not worked for 29 months i am a single parent and need help. I have applied with SSDI(pending) i have a claim for increase on several contentions (C&P) completed and is in prep for notification. I was denied 2x for sleep apnea and it's in appeals but waiting for increase claim to go first.. why? o well. IN all i have asked for what i have should have long ago.. i tried to fight my conditions w/ out working.. becoming homeless as single parent and on.. i am reaching out to you all to give me a birds eye on if you think i stand a chance for increase from my 50% per C&P data. I am sure the IU will not fly considering what the DR. Wrote at the end, even though i have so many contentions that the Dr. indicates prevent me from employment or impact it. Please take a gander and post what you think.
