    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:

    • 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

"key" For Quick Claims Process?

Guest jangrin


Guest jangrin

I understand that when veterans file thier claim there can be certain circumstances when a hardship request would help the claim be expedited in the processing and rating award (terminal illness) My question is....

Does the VA prioritize a claim based on the type of claim? For example, cancer, amputee, Hearing, chronic fatigue symdrome.Multiple illness/injuries vs a single injury or illness.

It seems that although the Iraqi freedom vets may be getting priority, there must be a certain amount of culling through claims to determine who gets processed quickly and who waits. It is obviously not done by first come first served.

Does anyone really know the "key" for quick claims process?Also can a veteran request his claim be moved to a VaRO with less backlog?

I think it is very likely that they work certain claims earlier than others based on the degree of difficulty. A claim for s/c of lung cancer on a in-country Vietnam vet most definitely would not take as long to complete as most multi-issue claims and the VA gets the same credit for working them. I know they receive additional credit if the claim is 8 issues or more...but a 7 issue claim is worth the same to them as a 1 issue claim. The guy that told me about the prioritizing of the Iraqi/Afghani vets said that the VARO's get a list of who qualifies for this status from up above.

I do know that you may not request that your file be transferred to another office unless you move to that state. You could always establish a post office box in another state and go about it that way I suppose, but unless someone checks the mail you'll miss your C&P exams, due process letters, etc. I think that this would be risky though.
