    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

No one can tell you how long but the disprders you mention can make you eligible for TDIU.

I would talk to VSO about speeding them up as that is a long time for a review

pete you are absolutely right, it is along time and yet the vso states; to wait until september and they will address it with a writ? Will that not slow the whole process? Having been diagnosed and on meds also in individual therapy for two years now seems increditable that a C&P has not been accomplished yet, sounds lilke a set up for a lengthy remand.

Sometimes I wonder if the va claim process has any merit to it at all, mark

Question,

1. How long approx. does it take to get a dro interview, once you have submitted your nod?

I would speculate to say about 12-24 months of waiting to get a DRO DeNovo Review

and 12-36 months of waiting to get a DRO Hearing. There aren't many RO's

that come to mind that would be much quicker. Please remember though this is only my opinion,

2. Is severe chronic ptsd, and severe recurrent mdd disorders qualify for tdui?

That will depend on what your doc's state in writing and how the decision maker

decides to weigh the evidence.

3. Being unemployed, with applications in for ssdi enough to qualify for tdui?

Not necessarily.

4. What is P&T, and with ptsd, mdd, gad, and a gaf of 40, sufficient enough to raise eyebrows?

P&T = Permanent and Total.

No it won't raise any eyebrows but it might get some SC'd compensation.

jmho,

carlie

    • 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...
