  • 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

From Post Determination, Back To Rating Office


Hello everyone,

Today I learned my claim file has gone back to the rating board from Post Determination. Why would this happen and do you think this is to my advantage or disadvantage?

In addition, I learned that my c-file is in Puerto Rico instead of my VARO, which is in Winston Salem, N.C. According to the V.A. Rep. my file was chosen randomly and sent there because of Winston Salem's backlog of claims. I wonder if this is a blessing or not? Interestinggggg!

The last time, I spoke with a V.A. Rep. he said I had just left third base on my way home. I guess, I'm back on 3rd base, nevertheless it won't be as long as it has been (I don't think).

Have a great evening!

It will only take a couple of days. They may have rated something under the wrong rating code or missed an issue. It will go back if the rater forgot to sign it. They have to send them back for misspelled words. They usually correct them right away and send them back to Post Determination. The end is near :D .

Kw34 you are funny! So what are you really saying about the Winston Salem VARO?

Sharon and Carlie, I look at it as money in the bank whenever it gets here.I have SSA in place along with state disability comp. I'm just happy I finally took the time and had the guts to file. Sometimes , things seem more difficult than they actually are. I wish I had filed a lot sooner.

A couple days sounds great and three months is still okay. If I had to speculate, I would say I will hear something in three weeks. Are there anymore speculations out there?

    • 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...
