    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

File your claim for PTSD. In about 30 days they will develop for information. You can file the claim for all of your issues. You will have time to get your evidence. You need to establish your date of claim.

I'm confused. If you received a letter requesting more information...then you have already filed a claim.....yes? If so, then I would be sure to heed the suspense date on that letter first and foremost.

As purple had stated, if you received a letter asking for more information that means you have already filed a claim or claims. VA is currently processing that or those claims. If you filed for more than one claim VA will try to process them all at the same time. If they can not rate all of them they will rate what they can and defer the other(S). Get all the evidence you can and make a copy of it and send it to VA certified return receipt so someone at the VA will sign for it and you have returned mail receipt to prove they received it. Let them know that your evidence is in your C-File and the VA hospital records. Also if you have seen private doctor (S) let them know by signing the request for release of information form that came in the letter. Also they are looking for what every you file for, try to only send evidence of that or those issues. If you currently don't have a claim in for XXXX don't send them evidence for XXXX, you can file that after this rating. If you choose to file it, it will not change your effective date but the more claims you file at once gives them the more opportunity to deny you and longer to process. In other words only send them what they ask for, If you choose to add more claims that is up to you. Also you can see you doctor about this or these current issues to see if you need any special exams.

I hope this makes sense

Who is the best source for status of your claim

What prevents it from sitting in a in box waiting for someone to do something with it

I have probably overwelmed them with a lot information on several issues

This will slow it down I am sure

    • 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...
