  • 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

Nod Question

Question

Over the weekend I received an unofficial letter from the DAV stating that I was rated 30% for PTSD. Everything else was denied. If, I wanted to do a NOD on the things that were denied and amend others what affect would this have on my PTSD rating? Would the VA hold up the entire claim until it was all settled?

Congratulations on getting the 30%, because it's a start! :rolleyes:

Once you get your letter from the VA, then they 'will' 'may' 'should' 'possibly' have reasons listed for why they have denied other parts of your claim.

Pete53 asks a good question, because if you are unable to work or having problems at work, then there are other options that need to be followed up on also.

You should wait for the official letter before doing anything. You have a yr to file your NOD. Your letter will give "reasons and bases" for their decisions. From that you can decide what you need. During your claims process you should've received a VCAA letter explaining what you need to prove your claim(s). The NOD should have no affect/effect on your 30% rating. If you feel your PTSD should be rated higher you should appeal that, also. The VA will not hold up your claim until all is settled.

Thanks for all the replies and advise. Yes, I do work as I like to eat and sleep in a bed :rolleyes: However, I am well medicated and that gets me through the day.

Check the retro when you get it-and by all means- as others said here- NOD it.

Once you get the actual award you will have a good idea what they used as evidence and then how to shape your NOD.

    • 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...
