    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.
     
     
    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 Disability Commission's Report


Recommended Posts

According to the Charter of the President's VA Disability Commission, their Report was due over 3 months ago. First Meeting was May 9-10, 2005. Has anyone heard what their recommendations were? Last I heard, they were waiting for some reason until after the Election to release the Report?

SEC. 1503. REPORT.

Not <<NOTE: Deadline.>> later than 15 months after the date on which

the commission first meets, the commission shall submit to the President

and Congress a report on the study. The report shall include the

following:

(1) The findings and conclusions of the commission,

including its findings and conclusions with respect to the

matters referred to in section 1502©.

(2) The recommendations of the commission for revising the

benefits provided by the United States to veterans and their

survivors for disability and death attributable to military

service.

(3) Other information and recommendations with respect to

such benefits as the commission considers appropriate.

The due date was extended until sometime in 2007. Although they will not admit it, it was because of the elections. Who wants a report right before the elections that they intend on using to reduce benefits in the veterans system?
