When a Veteran starts considering whether or not to file a VA Disability Claim, there are a lot of questions that he or she tends to ask. Over the last 10 years, the following are the 14 most common basic questions I am asked about when it comes to filing Veterans Affairs Disability Claims.

  4. Preparation For Decision

    My lawyer took 20% of my award. Better 80% of an award than nothing.
  5. The "winner winner chicken dinner nexus will have: 1. It will state that the Veterans records (medical) have been reviewed. 2. It will state that the nexus is "at least as likely as not" format. It will fail if it says" maybe, could be, or other "speculative" statements. 3. If its an IMO/IME, then include the doctors CV, that is, his traiing and expertise in this field. A Phd from a doctor in Social work, wont help you with your nexus. 4. He needs to state his medical rationale as to why he offered said professional opinion. Something like, "The AMA issued a statement in 2015 that linked Raynauds and exposure to cold" for example.
  6. Submit the records. Its a mistake to think that some VA employee has your back and will obtain the applicable records for you. Take charge of your own claim and ensure that its done and dont count on an unknown GS5 employee, who may not even show up that day, to validate your claim. Many a Vet on here has counted on VA to get their records for them, and many have been disappointed.

    When VA requests your records, make no mistake, they are looking for an "excuse to deny". As an example, for many benefits you have to have the requiste period of service, such as war time service for pensions. They also want to check for things like bad discharges which may make you ineligible. You see this a lot if you have multiple periods of service..maybe you served in the Army from 80-82, then the air force from 87-90. The VA likes to deny if you have a bad discharge...even when you also have a good discharge.
  8. Dean, about a year ago I had contact with a Hadit member, young San Diego Cop - USMC Air Wing Firefighter Vet that had MM DX. He'd been Denied SC, filed DRO Review Requesting Hardship Advancement immediately. Within about 2 mos he was Awarded 100% P & T. His E-mail no longer works, so I believe he passed.

    Also, if you take care of your wife, you are entitled to additional VA monies. I am 80% and I get an additional $122 a month. It's called Spousal Aid and Attendance. Not to be confused with the disabled Veteran's Aid and Attendance. You really need someone to look after your wife while you go to the VA and get the ball rolling. Do you have a County Veterans Service Officer (CVSO)'s in your state? That's were I would start. The VA will do nothing for you by themselves. You have to do it all, and hopefully with some help. And its going to take time. A simple claim may take as little a 3 months, whereas a complex case can take years if not many years. My simple claims average 8-12 months. Are you in the VA system and do you get compensation currently. Hamslice

    The difference between "substantial gainful employment" and income is important. You can have plenty of income from investments, stocks, bitcoin, etc, as you are not "working" to "earn" that income. SGE is defined as earning over the poverty level which depends on your number of dependents, but is around 11,000 per year.
