    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

What Is Your Opinion?

Question

I received this response from IRIS when I inquired about the status of my claim. The rating decision was completed before I mailed in my medical records to fully document and support my claims. Will my claim be negatively impacted since they did not wait for my records? (I told them they were on the way) What is a reasonable amount of time for me to get "the letter"? Thanks for any help you can throw my way. --Tim

In regards to whether or not your claim had been seen by the Rating Board, yes your claim has been through the rating board. Your rating decision was completed on February 9, 2009.

In regards as to whether or not your claim has been through the post determination team, no your claim is still being authorized and adjudicated (this is where we make sure all the laws and regulations have been met). Once adjudication is completed your claim will then go to the post determination team for the final action.

In regards to what percentage may be assigned to you, we will not know the final decision until after adjudication has been completed and your notification letter is complete.

Your claim should be authorized soon at which time you will receive a notification letter explaining the decisions made and the action being taken once you are finalized.

I personally had my letter and money in 2 months on 2 claims, I am not holding my breath on this one.

Normally the last step in the process (crossing the t's and dotting the i's) takes anywhere from 7 - 10 days. However, with the backlog (it affects the entire process) to could take 10-18 days - give or take a couple of days. Good luck with outcome

    • 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...
