    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

Claim Has Been Rated But Did Not Have C&p Exam

Question

Hello im new to this post and have a question about my claim. I am currently 50% for mental disability and have put in a new claim for ptsd, anxiety, and unemployability. It has been a year since i filed and I called the va and they said a decision was made a week ago and was waiting for review. My question is can they rate a ptsd claim without sending you to another C&P examination? If I dont have a c&p exam how can they know what or how to rate my claim. If anyone has any advice or answers I would appreciate it. thanks

Welcome aboard Tanya- they only rate one mental disability-

They could rate say PTSD with depression or Anxiety with agoraphopbia but still the VA will only rate the main mental disability and will not give additional comp for additional diagnoses.

This is why I assume they didnt give you a C & P-but hard to say-

Did they send you a VCAA letter telling you exactly what evidence you need for TDIU?

I think this was a claim for higher rating and not a new claim?

Meaning that your present 50% mental disability has gotten worse due to other factors and has caused unemployability?

Has any doctor stated that your 50% SC has caused you to be unemployable?

Do you get SSDI solely for the mental condition that VA rated at 50%?

well if you do not put in new evedeince then they will use the old stuff...by the way va will only rate one mental condition the highest one....so you can have 20 mental diagnose but they will only give you the highest rating ...

Two ways a rating team can adjudicate your claim,- 1st, is if the evidence is very strong and compelling they may rate your claim without the C&P exam. However, that is very rare- but it does happen. The 2nd, They see no change is your condition based upon the evidence submitted and your rating stays the same. If you are seeking IU, then you will most likely always have an exam if your is considered "plausible"- meaning that the R/O cannot find the smallest of reason to deny the claim up front without exam.

REPLY: Good morning all! I am new to this posting board so, should I say what others may refer to as "a dumb thing" please accept my apologies. Me: Currently 30% ~ Reads Anxiety Disorder with PTSD. Have No recollection of a C & P whatsoever. First meeting was with a VA Psycharist(sp) Doctor? My impression of this was for them to either accept or reject the claim. Second meeting with the VA was with an MD in application for my VA GOV HEALTH card. In my view, the 30% has proved a disappointment. Did she rate me off my DD-214?

    • 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...
