Ending your claim with this?

Question

  • Moderator

After you prepare your claim and send in all your evidence  cross your T's and I's  All in your favor I wonder if this would help or hurt the claim  to put a sweet taste to it or some call it kissing *SS

Mr or Ms Rater I do realize you have a hard job to to do making these decisions everyday sitting there and reading about our stories and our experience while in the military , I realize you have a very stressful job but please don't let it get to ya,  think of as SSDD   (same shit different day) just remember I love you guys with all my heart and hopefully your days will go  a lot smoother.

Have a Nice Day 

My Best Regards 

Mr Veteran

With what we've been put through, it couldn't hurt

Interesting, for those who read the claim and all the documents submitted I would say it might impact 25% of the cases (pure guess).

Unfortunately, the sad reality is the majority don't even read everything we submit. If they did there would be a lot less appeals.

But it would never hurt, I kiss @ss whenever I have a call with them on a HLR. It helped two out of the three times.

Im sure it depends on the person who is the decision maker for your claim.  Frankly, if I was the decision maker, I would base it on the evidence, not on your "nice letter".  

For some, it may even backfire..

Send em cookies, instead..lol.

Be polite, be courteous, show respect for the examiner and process but don't get diarrhea of the mouth. Stick to your job which is to let the examiner know how serious your symptoms are. Period. That's it. And never argue with the jerk. He/she doesn't make the rating decision. You want them to check off the boxes so the Rater will see it in writing. That's how it works.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    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.

    Examples:

    • 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.

    Note:

    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.
