    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

After A Decision For Tdui


I was wondering as in my previous topic post am awaiting a decision for tdui after being invited to file

I recieved retro pay for the periods of Oct 2001 - current but I had decisions rendered back in 1997

that rated me less than 10% and am wondering how to file a claim claiming the same condition for

Chronic Actinomycosis as underwent exactly the same treatments and conditions that have today.

If the VA admitting the CUE for the current retro how easy is it to get them to go back to 1996?

Also hope that I havent offended anyone on the board via my technical advice just wanted to

help and use what is left of my art in computers to help all and any by way of advice.

Thanks in advance

As for the first part of your post, I have no idea... sorry.

As for the second part of your post, you are like me and are willing to give advice based upon having had a successful career in the Information Technology field. I, too, hope that no one takes offense to advice freely given when asked. The advantage of asking a technical question to a board, is that the odds go up that someone else has had to deal with the problem before, and you won't have to recreate the wheel to address the problem.

So, personally, I will continue to answer questions until someone can prove that I am more incompetent than I already feel sometimes. There are some days my forehead hurts from slapping it so much. :D

I know I appreciate those gifted in the computer world. I learn a lot by trial and error and google but in the end I talk to my kids and they help me with the big problems.

One of my biggest problems is my vision is not so good and hard to hook up all the gadgets.

The VA is not easy to get them to pay back in fact they usually try to knock out some of the back pay.

You probably need to give some more info about your back pay issue to earlier year cause they won't go back any further than when you filed your claim.

    • 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...
