    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

Question

Hello Everyone:

I'm so tired of waiting on my rating but I wanted to know if anyone has dealt with the RO in Huntington, WV. I looked up their average claims approvals, disapprovals, etc and they were better than most RO but I don't know.

Anyone know's?

You can access this VARos Morning Reports at

And the Knight Ridder reports are a little outdated but still very good stats- probably worse by now:

Michelle,

Have you received any correspondence from the Huntington R.O.

When you were transferred to Huntington, did you already have a C&P examination and ready to rate?

I had a More Likely than Not C&P, but was send before a Board within 5 months of that C&P at the request of the Huntington R.O. with no rhythm or reason.

They didn't allow the first doctor to be present on the board and refused to allow anyone to be present during that C&P.

To beat it all, Mr. Brimmer at the Huntington Office told me that I was going down for follow-up treatment.

I received a letter from the Medical Center- Reminder of your clinic appointment.

The C&P turned out to be a joke, all lies.

I am now at the AMC for them to figure out the mess.

Wish you better luck than me.

Just watch out for a Mr. Brimmer and Carl Ray.

Josephine
