    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?”

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Received C & P Appointment



I filed my new claims in the Detroit office just as I did the first ones. I took my C & P in the Detroit office. The letter came today for me to show up at the Saginaw location for these new claims C & P. Has this happened to anyone? I actually live in between them. Also, should I continue to send new evidence to the Detroit office where I filed the claims?

Pretty quick isn`t it....filed in Sept. and c & p in Dec.?

Sometimes that happens if there are 2 VA's within commuting distance. Maybe Detroit was booked full ao the RO asked for Saginaw. There is also a thing called patient sensivity such as being a former employee at the VA. I Live in Lexington Ky and was sent to Louisville for a C@P exam.

Have you had as much trouble as I have with the code 6 sensitive file with most everyone that you speak to not having the security clearance to open your file, thus being in the dark with every question that you ask.

I have found this at the R. O, The BVA and now the same for the AMC. No security clearance.

Thanks bunches!

The Va has been denying either of us to touch the file. My rep in Huntington tried to touch it before it went to the BVA, with no success.

It is discusting every time I call the AMC, no one has clearance to open the file. It was the same way at the BVA.

Why does everyone need a Special Clearance ? Why don't they just lock out my nieces computer and set everyone free.

It is no wonder that my file is in the mess that it is in.

When it was transferred into Huntington, W. Va. I would call the 800 # and get the Counselors at the Roanoke office. I would ask them about my file as they sent me for the first C&P and transferred it to Huntington.

They told me that they didn't have anything to do with the W. Va. claims.

The hospital in Beckley W. Va. gave me the telephone number for Huntington R.O never did know if they even have counselors at that office.

I have no ideal of whom I spoke with, but they sure never knew a thing about my file.

My rep picked it up one day and took it to his office and one of the employees came immediately for it.

If my niece had wanted to add something to my claims file, she would have done it much sooner and I would have benefits and not be in the middle of this huge fight for benefits.
