    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

Ch. 35 with 70% TDUI P&T?



Hello all, 

I was recently granted P&T status for my 70% PTSD SC disability. Based on my research, it appears that regardless if you’re 100% scheduler or 100% TDIU, the benefits are the same. 

My question revolves around Ch. 35 benefits for my children when they reach the age of 18. Mainly talking about college here. None of the kids are of that age yet, but will be in a few years. Would I qualify for Ch. 35 benefits for kids and spouse at 70% P&T? I’ve been 100% IU since 2010, but was only recently granted P&T status a few days ago. 

Just not entirely sure how everything works, or if my dependents/spouse are even eligible to receive these Ch. 35 benefits. 

Edit: Just to clarify, I don’t think TDIU was rated P&T, just the PTSD rating. Guessing that Ch.35 doesn’t take effect until you’re rated P&T for TDIU or reach 100% via schedule....bummer.

The spouse and children might well be eligible for CHAMPVA, which is handled independently from the RO s.

I have CHAMPVA and have never paid for any medical bills, tests, check ups, at all, except for  prescribed orthonics which neither Medicare nor any other insurance company will pay for. And for eyeglass frames are not covered..

It is the kicker to my Medicare.
