  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Computer Generated 60 Day Letter

Question

Have received several of these spit out of the pc letters, however, none received this month. You know the ones, every 60 days, blah, blah...doing all we can to process you claim, etc. and so forth.

I wonder, wonder, wonder if possibly since this months "letter" didn't arrive when scheduled, and DH's TDIU claim will be 60 days and counting on 6/23, if VARO is finally getting around to rating it. It's been there since 4/24/09 per IRIS and 1-800, filed the darn thing last October.

Reluctantly we have had to keep the VSO on board as there is a pending decision at BVA also, the VA did set up a temp file for the TDIU. If I had enough energy to post what VSO said, I would.....lets just say they don't know how to count. Reps says, oh they don't count weekends when counting out the days, they only count business days a claim is in the pot getting stirred. When I was the heavy hearted soul who worked for an attorney who had a contract processing foreclosures on VA home mortgages (in the 80's), they sure counted the weekends for those who were losing their homes. Interesting.....

Thoughts????????

Did your past employers receive their verification forms and return them yet???

here is my thought on it, just a guess, so don't take it as anything...

Those letters are sent whenever your file comes up for air, and the va people see that they are waiting for something.. so they generate a letter.. I would think it is good news that you didn't get one.. maybe it is being worked.

For my IU claim.. I got the "working on it letter".. then the employer forms ( i didn't put down the addresses on my application.. so they sent them to me ).. and a week after that got a call asking for the employers addresses... Once I got the employers to fill out the forms, and dropped them off at the VA it was about a week or so and they granted it..

A claim for TDIU filed October 2008 probably has 6-12 more months before you hear anything, unless it's an original claim from an OIF/OEF vet and remember,

VA has no time limit to respond.

Very rarely go by what the 1-800 # tells you.

Reluctantly we have had to keep the VSO on board as there is a pending decision at BVA

When was the claim certified and transferred to BVA?

Have you received notice from BVA that they have your file

and been assigned and provided a docket #?

also, the VA did set up a temp file for the TDIU.

I feel VARO will not work the claim for TDIU until BVA is finished.

Reps says, oh they don't count weekends when counting out the days, they only count business days a claim is in the pot getting stirred.

I feel VA only counts days when it is less adventageous to the claimant,

but there is a rule for this also, maybe someone will post it for you.

    • 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...
