  • 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

How Would I Search For A Specific Cue Case!

Question

I am trying to find out some information on past cases where the VA took away someone's 10% compensation or any percentage for that matter. It would be very helpful to find cases such as mine where the VA did the same thing to other veterans. The Navy discharged me with a heart condition and the VA gave me 10% for over 1 year and then took it away because I was working full time. I still have the heart condition and it is worse now than back then.They even wrote that the heart condition is still there and took it away any way. I don't know if this could be a CUE. I want to research this to see if I might have a chance for filing a CUE. I'm just not sure how to search for specific cases. Any help would be VERY helpful.

Thanks in advance, Brian

Good Morning Brian, I had a couple of 10 percenters reduced to 0, over the years. The malaria disability had an automatic reduction to 0 after a year because I didn't have a reoccurrence. Another 10% sc disability cleared up and though it's still on the books, it's now rated 0. This was a long time ago. Where is the CUE? Good luck.

bm,

Believe me this is not WHY VA reduced you 10 percent to zero percent.

You need to read your reduction letter.

Also,

VA has to notify a claimant prior to reduction with a proposal to reduce.

Did VA always have your correct address to notify you ?

Any chance they scheduled you for a re-examination that you did

not attend ?

You can search BVA decisions here:

Hope this helps a vet.

Brian, was it a severance or a reduction? How long have you been service connected? What type of heart disease ( Exactly)?

Did they come out and say that since you are working that the reduction is warranted?

Would you mind showing me the Documents?

I need to know these things for I am Sc for heart disease and I have extensive CUE experience.

jbasser, They reduced me from 10% to 0% back in 1967. I have been SC since 1966. I had a heart attack on Jan 25, 2006 and have been diagnosed with CAD. See my other post for reasons for the reduction. I'd love to show you the documents. Not sure how to scan th this Hadit site.

Thanks, Brian

    • 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...
