    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

1800 Number



Called the 1800 number today (my weekly call) . The gentleman on the phone stated that according to the computer my case was decided today ( I have 2 seperate NODS plus one appeal to the BVA.) My question is how long will it take to hear from the VA after a case is decided? These two cases are going on 2 1/2 years now

Thanks for any info

It all depends. If the decision(s) are denials or if there is less than $25,000.00 retro involved, you should receive the decision within a couple of weeks. If the claim(s) were approved and there is over $25,000.00 retro involved, then your claim must be sent for a third signature, generally by the Veterans Service Center Manager or their assistant. This could take a few more days to complete.

Jim-I sure hope this is good news-----

I am baffled by the 800# sometimes-

Last week they said my claims were still with a rater- but today they said they have been with Regional counsel for over a week-

it takes time for the VARO PC to catch up sometimes-

This is a good sign for me-counsel had the claims 3 weeks ago-but for only one day and now they have it all again-

It is either to confirm a General Counsel Pres Op I sent in support of my CUE for SMC or they are checking the offset they held back when they awarded me DIC.

Then again -hard to figure out-

I wish regional counsel would call me- he is an excellent VA attorney-and we discussed my older FTCA claim some months ago as to the ramifications to my 2003 AO claim.He was very familiar with some of the older claim and knew that it had taken much longer than needed.

They might be looking for some VA documents-

within 3 months of my FTCA claim the VA wanted to settle with me-based on a VA doctor's report he just received that confirmed malpractice.

Funny how that then mysteriously disappeared. They then said there was no record at all of it.I even used FOIA to get a copy of it-no record---- Took 3 more years to reach a FTCA settlement.

(I do have a copy of it now though-it was in my c file!- I am still amazed at what my c file revealed-)
