    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

Yes apply for TDIU and Social Security as soon as you can. I am sure someone will link the forms for you.

Good Luck

yep, very possible...Should apply now since you meet the percentages. Should have gotten an inferred claim for IU.

erico541. the form you need is 21-4192 and this is available on the computer. In item 13a say you can't work due to your service connected disabilities. You may want to get someone to help fill this out for you but be sure it says in item 13a service connected disibilities is the reason you can't work. I wish you the best of luck and you wish me the same as I filed my claim 4 weeks ago. Now we wait.

Sorry trailblazer,

http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-4192-ARE.pdf

This is not the correct form for filing a claim for TDIU the form number is VA 21-8940

http://www.vba.va.gov/pubs/forms/VBA-21-8940-ARE.pdf

I am not sure where you got this form but if you read it, it states that it is for VA and the employer to fill out, so I am guessing it is for when a person is working or recently fired or quit because of service connected disabilities and not for the veteran to fill out. a veteran can take it to his employer or old employer to fill out and then send it to VA but the veteran will still have to fill out and file the VA 21-8940. VA may even send a copy to an employer or prior employer if a veteran files for IU but VA 21-4192 is not for the veteran to fill out themselves.

    • 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...
