Feeling screwed



I was denied for my fully developed PTSD claim as being not service related. I went to the DAV to file my appeal but they suggested I get treatment and counseling first to establish a paper trail and to get evidence of service connection. After about 6 months of treatment I went to file my appeal. They said to do the reconsideration based on new evidence ( treatment notes and a letter from my VA therapist plus copies of my Purple Heart award) and file a NOD at the same time. In mid March a representative of the VA called and said that reconsideration can go through but i have to drop the nod. I dropped it and I've had a new c&p exam on April 8 and it's still in the gathering evidence phase. My appeal time is over may 25th. After doing more research on my own I discovered that a reconsideration doesn't exist in the VA and I'm pissed at myself for listening to the DAV. Will This be considered a new claim or will my original date of 2-24-15 still be there? I'm also thinking I should file my NOD to preserve my original date but not sure what this will do to my reconsideration. Any advice would be helpful.

Can you put your denial on here?  ''WHAT WE DECIDED'' cover all your private info   name and SS #

If we can see what they based your denial on we all can help you better

 & you having your records of award of your PH & records of your deployment to fallujah how can they say your claim is not Service Related...That's Ridiculous.

I'm at work right now and will try to do it when I get home. From memory it stated that there wasn't enough evidence in my records and the case was decided 2 days after my first c&p for PTSD.

If you have most of your SMR'S and your PH award  COMBAT BADGE having those  it is not required you prove your stressor's  just a Dr stating you have PTSD from past military service...TYhe VA MH PTSD Diagnose is good.

The C&P EXAM should have all this when you went to it  and if VA Had the exam report in just 2 days I'd say something is up with that.   even if it was done at your VA  iT TAKES THE EXAMINER LONGER THAN THAT TO WRITE UP HIS /HER REPORT. AND READ ALL YOUR RECORDS

Yes when you get time please post your denial.

It was done by qtc and I had my exam on May 23 and a decision on May 25. The examiner said that she didn't have my records and I then had to have the VA resend my letter because it got lost in the mail. That wasted almost 2 months. Will filing the NOD screw up the process more?  The latest c&p was at the va center I go to therapy at and they had all my records (according to them). They also had access to over 9 months of therapy notes as well

Call your RO let them know the C&P Exam you had on MAY 23 The examiner didn't have your records.

but you should have already file the NOD? f you did  you just have until next month on the 23rd  your NOD runs out of time...so do this ASAP

what letter are you meaning the VA SENT AND WAS LOST IN THE MAIL?

If you have no proof  then VA Considers it never happen.

they get veterans with this lost in the mail BS

Always get the green card....for your proof.

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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 from your claim?” etc.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

    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
