  • 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

C&p Exams

Question

I received two letters for C&P exams on two different dates. It doesn't state what they are for. One is on the floor that I go to for my PTSD meds so I would figure thats what one is for. The other could be for one of two other claims that I sent in. How will I know what this if for, can I call up and check. Both exams say to bring all your meds with you. Its all the computer at the VA which meds I take, no big deal. I would not like to walk into an interview and be blindsided and not know whats going on.

I called the 1-800 number and they told me the wrong reason for the exam. I then called the comp&pen office at my regional office and they told me what it was REALLY for. Not sure if the person on other end of 1-800 was ignorant or they did it on purpose. I would just call your local office where your comp&pen is to get the correct answer.

Call the C&P Office at your VAMC - they will tell you whether it is mental, general etc.... and the doc's name. At least they do at my VAMC

Also, the last name of the doctor is usually on your appointment letter. You can go on the VA website and see the list of doctors for your area and their specialty. Here is the site for the san diego area. Not sure where your at.

I guess you can just replace the city where you're at in place of san diego.

    • 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...
