    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

gbennett,

He is right, no lawyer until you receive a final answer from the BVA. I could not find help anywhere for my claim, until I came across The National Level of the American Legion.

They would be in Washington, D.C. and would welcome your phone call.

If you give them your power of attorney, they can look at your claims.

They are working with me, without my power of attorney, as I didn't come across them until my power of attorney is with the West Va. Dept of Veterans Affairs.

For the most part, I use their name and research everything myself.

Hope this helps,

Josephine

Gordon-

even if you could find a lawyer for 10 bucks, or let's say Congress passes that bil that allows us to get lawyers- it still remains that the VA denied your claim for specific reasons-

It is these reasons that have to be overcome with evidence- if you tell us more as to why they denied your claim-maybe we can offer some help.

Did you get a VCAA Notice that specifically told you what you needed to give them as well as whatever they said in the denial?

Did they fully address all of your evidence? Or are they ignoring it?
