    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?”

And i need to give them a Direct deposit form and to go home and the guy will call me... Well almost one month has gone by and nothing how long does it take till they start to pay you ??

Robert51,

Depending on what area you live in it usually takes about 2 months from when you get your award letter to get the back pay. You usually get the first monthly installment before the back pay. I believe what your son has to sign says that he is now 18 and is no longer qualified to get a percentage of your SSD. It sounds like you filed long before he turned 18. You will be entitled to about 40-45% of your award for your children. So that means say if you get $1000 a month then our child gets about $425-450 until they turn 18. The direct deposit form that they speak of consists of your bank name the routing # and account number for your account. Your bank can give you this form.

Mine went like this.

March 21 - ALJ Hearing - Judge said in hearing he would approve - Stated why is this here should have been approved before this.

May 30 - Letter from ALJ Judge saying "Approved"

3 July - Money in the Bank

5 July - Letter from SSA in Mailbox saying amounts etc.

Filed in Sep 2000, Got money in July 2002. Just went thru paperwork and got approved to stay on Disability (VA P&T No Exam). Gee like I got better and went back to work (I would if I could).

Anyway hang in there! My Son's money took about 10 more days after I got my money.

thats what had me kind of pissed off ... my letter came sept.29 and just last week a guy calls and says he will be coming over to get my son to sign the form and i should receive my first check in another 2 months. and to let him know if i dont have my first check or back pay by end of jan 2007 and i started this stuff in Feb 2004 if i did not have VA what would i live on for 3 years .

Beware that technically the money for children under 18 must be accounted for as it is for them. They actually have an annual form to fill out spelling out how the childrens money is spent on them.

That said the kids cost more to feed clothe ans shelter than you ever get from SSA.

Good point Pete53. I forgot about that form as it only comes once a year. It seem more like a formality to me. As long as you fill it out in its entirety ssa has never bothered me with it. Dale Jr 8
