    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?”

    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

Sorry.  Most of us have been on the hamster wheel.  I think Im still dizzy from going round and round, time after time, delays, denials, more delays, more denials, and more lowballs.  Then you fight em again for the effective date, which is often wrong.

VA is not punished in any way for delaying claims for years.  You don't get interest on your retro pay, so why should VA try to get it right the first time.  To top it off if VA denies and delays long enough you may die.  Even if your spouse gets DIC that is much less than 100% for your dead self.  VA treats us just like sh*t .  I hope that does not offend but it is true.  We are the slaves and they are the masters.  Even if we win our claims what price have we paid in time and suffering?

CCK has filed suit agains the VA for delays. You should see the letter they got back in response. It threw some folks not under the bus but right through the side if it.
