    Have Questions? Get Answers.

    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.
    • 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

Just Called The 800 Number And?

Guest jstacy


I talked to the nicest person I have ever talked to at the VARO.

The person said the award was completed and I should be getting a letter within the next 2 weeks. I didnt want to go into too many details but I beleve there was a hint in there somewhere, Someone correct me if I am wrong as it may be just anxiety mixed with a dose of wishful thanking.

What do you mean about "a hint in there"?

Sounds to me like you just won the lottery.

I'd be checking my bank balance.....................daily.

They actually said "award" ?

I would be in a state of VA induced paranoia and would call back and get a second opinion and even a third.

Wouldn't this be wonderful?

I would be cautiously optimisitic.

The magic word used to be "authorization" but I found that word can mean you are in the crapper too-

Now I think the magic word is " at Finance".

But saying to expect an "award" is just incredible!

Let's hope this is true.Check your mailbox and your checking account until the letter comes.

I have always gotten award letters many days after they sent the money.

I truly hope this is an AWARD and that you hear something real soon. Maybe also try the IRIS question through the email and see what the email word on your claim is.

I know it's hard to celebrate to much until you have the letter in your hand or money in the bank. But it sounds good to me. B)

yup sounds good but like everything with the VA it ain't real until you get the letter, then usually you have the money within 5-10 days but I have seen to many people count on having won their claim (like me) only to see the letter come saying denied or something else to that effect....don't count chickens yet I would hate to see your feelings get hurt

Thanks Pete. If It had not been for T Bird, Berta, Yourself, John , Allan, and a host of others here, I would still be stuck in the limbo stage.
