    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

bigjim, for an estimate let's say $2,500.00 x 9=$22,500.00. My pay now with one dependant and a "K" award is $2,699.00 a month. It depends a lot on your effective date of 100%. When my retro check came it was over $40,000.00. Important point, TAX FREE.

I wish you the same or more for your claim. Take care. Terry Sturgis

check that retro carefully-

they hardly ever break it down unless you ask-

I wrote to them some time back that it appeared they forgot about 300-400 in my DIC and about 11 thou in my other DIC offset refund-due to a CUE I had that the RC awarded.

Within 3-4 weeks I got checks for both errors they made - they almost snookered me-

These types of questions -sent to them-not in the form of a NOD- go directly to Finance and they work faster than the claims dept.

And, it is also funny that when they DO make a mistake in the Vets' favor..........that they catch it right away and are all over the Vet like stink on poo-poo.
