  • 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

Expedited Claim Docs

Question

i got the brown envelope today saying that they are expediting my claim as requested. i was so excited! then, i read down further and notice they r asking for a bunch of info that was already sent in. makes me feel as if i am just being dismissed in a way. is this standard procedure? did they NOT look at my packet i sent in?? for instance, here is one of the things they say they need:

* we need evidence showing that the following condition existed from military service to the present time: ptsd due to sexual abuse.

ok, i sent in the ER visit for the rape kit, the results of the rape kit, the mhc visit due to the mst....how much more evidence do they need????? all was while on active duty.

its frustrating. what am i supposed to do? send in exactly the same docs i sent with the packet?

Not to worry :D . The information they asked your for is required by LAW. Even if they have the information, in case of an appeal, they have to show that they asked you for it. Put the smile back on your face. Send them a statement that you have no further information and continue to process your claim.

If you know that they already have the info tell them that you want them to finish with the information that they have.

You got a boiler plate letter that they send to everyone.

Good Luck

Sorry to hear that!

Always send your information to the VA via "CERTIFIED MAIL", request a signature, MAKE COPIES & track it.

This makes them responsible once they sign for it.

Most importantly state in your cover letter that you've made copies of the information.

It's sometimes best to mail more than one copy to the VA.

If you've covered all bases then they probably have it and it's not in the system.

Good Luck :D

    • 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...
