    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

Have to agree with U on this one. When I first started trying to get comped.( Only took me 9 years lol) I had an SO that would look at all the Diseases related to Viet Nam & file a claim for them kmowing I didn't have them.

I was new to this & figured she knew what she was doing. Apparently not or maybe this is a ploy by the RO'S/VA to keep the system backlogged & have Vets just give up because of all the paper work. The unknowing when U will hear from them.The C & P's & all the Denials along the way to trying to get comped.

I had not found HADIT yet & if I hadn't doubt if I would have ever gotten comped.

I have learned that the VA has Lawyers & denying a single Vet is a piece of cake & chances are he may just give up or miss a dead line returning a form where the VA returns them when they want.

I ( By myself) went all the way to the CAVC & ( Having faith in the VA) was denied all the way.

OK...... Then I find Hadit & figure out I can use a Lawyer & hire Clark Evans & he got me comped no problem.

That's why the VA is scared of Lawyer's as the Lawyer U hire knows all the rules ( If U get a good one) & the VA can't screw over them as they can one Vet out of all the Vets applying for Disability

My life is screwed up in many ways that no amount of compensation can ever make better but I joined in 1964.

I wonder how I would feel if I had been DRAFTED & came back messed up & the VA say's "Take a Hike" nothing wrong with U.....GARY

I am glad to hear you found hadit and Clark. Clark gave me a lot of good advice just by posting on hadit. It took 8.5 years to get a proper rating on a slam dunk case without actually hiring an attorney.

On your BVA decisions/Remands is your docket number. Just go to the BVA portion of the VA website and enter it in and the year the decision was made. The decision should come up. Could you either post your docket number or a direct link to the decision, I'd like to take a look at it.
