    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?”

    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

Hi, I called the 800# and was told my file was ready to be assigned to a ratings specialist this week, I have called several times in the last several months and when the person at the 800# tells me this, the person is very upbeat , happy and says in effect, this is a great thing. Conversely, the CDVA rep tells me it will be months, months I tell you before any outcome. Additionally, the CDVA rep says it taked five years for an appeal...odd, I did not mention an appeal. It seems everyone has a different take on the situation. Any opinions on who the best source of disinformation is? Thank you.

Niether, Hadit is the best sourse for info. B)

Your file being at the rater, or assigned to a rater doesn't mean the rater is working on it. It means it is in a stack with the rest of the claims that need rated. When the rater get's to it they will decide if all the evidence necissary is in the file. If it's not they will send it back to the development team for further development. Then back the the rater stack.

So you can see, yes it could take quite some time before an actuall rating. The process is slow. I know that's not what your really wanting to hear. The actuall time it take depends on the region. Some are busier than others.

I doubt the Veterans rep has even looked into it and is blowing smoke.

Send an IRIS response and ask where it is at the rating board. They should tell you it as ready to rate of being rated.

Dont trust a VSR with this.
