    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?”

On the actual RATING DECISION page dated November 8,2006. One paragraph says this,

"Your overall or combined rating is 60%. We do not add the individual percentages of each condition to determine your combined rating. We use a combined rating table that considers the effect from the most serious to the least serious conditions."

On the rating decision page it states the introduction..... then under Decision paragraph it states

1. Service connection for generalized anxiety disorder with depressive disorder granted with the evaluation of 30 percent effective October 1,2005.

Then 4 more conditions are granted for 10% each and then 1 condition claimed is granted for 0%.

Does this mean they just said, yeah your hurt but no we aren't compensating you?

Then in the beginning of the packet I received today it says, "WHAT DID WE DECIDE: We detrermined that the following condition(s) were related to your military service, so service connection has been granted." Then in names off conditions and the percent % assigned. 30%, 10%, 10% 10% 10% Then the effective dates for all of them are OCT 5, 2006

Not really sure what you are asking but here goes.... You asked:

"Does this mean they just said, yeah your hurt but no we aren't compensating you?"

No you will be paid for 60% unless you received a severence pay for the service when you got out. In this case the VA will notify you and tell you how much you have to pay back before you will start getting compensation.

hope this answers your question.
