  • 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

Question

i just recieved my c&p results im 70% mdd with secondary ptsd, 20% lowerback, 20% left shoulder. I also have bi-lateral hip arthritis which was caused in service but they deny it. I spent 2 months in the va hospital under the dual diagnoisis program which they kept me an extra month. Before the 2 months there I have been recieving out patient care for over five years. My regular therapist and doctor requested me to up my percent. While in treatment the counslers put me in for unemployability before I did my exams. I did recieve a unemployabilty paper in my decision package dont know if that matters. My gaf score is 40. I also did neuro testing which i was diagnoided with mild cognitive disorder nos, closed head injury. I thought after you had the rating to meet the criteria for iu you automatically recieved it. Iam happy I visited this site now I have a little more heads up of what I have to do. I have delivered pizzas for the most my time out of service, which I cant do it any longer I cant I told the counslers I would put a bullette in my head before I ever do that job again. So I do look for work but I cant find a damn thing I can do. I've went to college 3 seperate times but didnt make it due to concentration problems. I have no where to go. I need to be able to live without worrying without feeling guilty for how my life has turned out after my disability happened. I guess if the veterans could find me a job I could do and was gainful and give my quality of life back somewhat. Granted no one cant stop pain and most everyone in here knows that, and that will always be with most of us, we should still be able to live a life with some promise. I'm not going to count my chickens before their hatched all i can do is hope for the best. In final do I have to go through a c&p exam again.

When i filed for IU i had to go for a C&P for everything i had a SC for. I went to 5 C&Ps.I had just recieved 90% PTSD and 20% for hearing loss in feb 09,But still had to go for other C&Ps all over again 2 weeks ago.I went to a medical dr. for 3 of them.IT took two hours. I went for PTSD exam again and a hearing exam.now i am waiting for the results with my fingers crossed.Good luck with your claim.THE veterans on here are great. they can walk you though it like they did me.

I was at 70% and filed out the TDIU papers and did go for another C&P.

It was very easy after having so many C&P's. I was worried about nothing. That is what I do best.

Anyways, I was immediately raised to TDIU from 2005- 2008 and the 100% P&T from that C&P in

August .

The VA can award TDIU based on the evidence of record but they usually like to have a fairly current C&P report to support their decision.

    • 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...
