    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

Can't say specificly but sometimes a rater will decide more information is needed and send the claim back to the developement team to get it. A proccess that is very hard on veterans that need a decision in a timely manner.

I can't say SS is much better. I had an ALJ hearing yesterday and don't think it went well. Three years and I think I may be denied again. Will have to wait and see, but I thought the evidence was enough to be granted an immediate decision. Myself, my wife and attorney didn't leave with a very good feeling though.

cal,

make sure va gets a copy of your ssd award asap -- ESPECIALLY if disabilities

on ssd award are the same as disabilities claimed or awarded from va.

I would also take a copy of the ssd award to this next c&p you are scheduled for

and leave the copy with the examiner. va can send you to as many c&p's as they want and you sure don't want to miss one. a C&P is a great time to document

medical evidence for your claim - i'd try to just stick with any and ALL disabilities

a vet is claiming for sc - i wouldn't bring up disabilities or illness that do not relate

to my va disabilities.

jmho,

carlie:

If you are getting SSD for something other than your VA claim it will not do you any good to mention it will it?
