    employment 2.jpeg

    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

Updating Your C And P Exam

Question

http://www1.va.gov/vhapublications/ViewPub....asp?pub_ID=311

i am sorry, i can't select all, copy, paste pdf documents. but for anyone that is going for a decision, you should read this. it allows the c and p to be repeated, provided the c and p is obsolete.

this applies in my case. big time. there have been two additional emgs, six additional neuro appointments. and a totally different diagnosis.

if someone could be so kind and get the url copy and pasted into this post it may be helpful.

Hey, that's good because after my C&P exam I had another test done that showed a condition they did not detect. I might just shoot this off to them at my VAMC which is where the C&P took place.

A few notes on this directive:

1. The original author (doctor, FNP, PA, etc.) of the C&P has to authorize the changes. If the original author gave you a unfavorable C&P, chances are they may not amend the report at a later date. I don't know what happens if the original author has moved on and is no longer at the VHA or contracted facility.

2. This directive is set to expire in five months.

3. This is a biggie; if you have new evidence added to a old C&P, then that will blow your earliest effective date of claim. The VA can and most likely will award based on the new evidence, and therefore will use the date of receipt of new evidence as the date of the award. They will argue that the previous evidence did not merit the award. Given this, it is my opinion that it would be better to let a current claim or appeal play out in entirety, then file for a increase based upon the new evidence. If you add something to the pot late in the game, you are just giving them ammunition to screw with you.

rental,

VA is trying to get out of paying me an earlier effective date

based on a newer C&P that finally resulted in a SC grant.

What VA hasn't realized yet and admitted to is that this

newer C&P is not actually new - but cumulative evidence.

A different C&P examiner stated the same thing as the C&P

examiner did in 1978, the decision maker just happened to

actually read and weigh it this time.

Hotcoffee2, go to your control panel, add/remove programs. Remove adobe. then go to the adobe site and download the latest version.

Then run the program.

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
