  • 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

Stimulus Payments

Question

I did not recieve my stimulus payment and called the 800 number and reported it. I was told there was a committee that was hadling these claims and my information would be forwarded to them for review. I was called a few days later and told that I was entitled to the payment and a notice was being sent to the Treasury Dept to issue my payment. I am thankful that they realized there was an error and they are trying to fix the error. However, I still have not recieved anything. Is there anyone else out there with a similar situation and have you received your payment yet? I'm trying to get a feel for how long it should take as well as let other Veterans know that the issue is being fixed.

Disabled vets should have recevied their stimulus payment for this year, no later than the end of July. I am however, still waiting for my stimulus payment from last year. LOL.

No check here.

I started to recieve disability in Feb 09. It was retro back to Nov 08. I was told I wasn't eligable for the stimulus because even thou I received disability for Nov and Dec of 08 I wasn't receiving checks for that year. Didn't make a lot of sense but I took their word for it.

I still haven't gotten mine either. I did get the letter a few months ago saying I would get,,, I just didn't get it. I also get SSI. I called back in June,,, they said they sent my SSI to the wrong account. Now,,, I did change accounts back in April and my May SSI went into the wrong account. I was credited for that mistake but was told the stim. credit will hit my account "sometime this year." LOL

I'm still waiting. Guess I'll give them a call Tuesday and ask if they meant Fiscal year or regular year. :D

I have not got mine.  

I think everyone should also contact the wonderful veteran service organizations that agreed to this payment in exchange for laying off pushing politicians to fully fund the Veterans Heath System.  I know I am going to get shot at for making a political comment on here. The truth and a reason why I will refuse to join the VFW and American Legion is that these organizations caved to this offer of stimulus for silence and the Government never even paid.  In order for the VA to pay they have to get the funding from the Treasury Dept. which has not happened FULLY.

This stimulus payment was nothing more than a payoff to keep quite about the despicable act of not fully funding the VA health system that has been going on for decades.

In my humble opinion I think the VA can keep their stimulus payment and fully fund VA heath system.  I guess I am just going miss out on both quality full funded care and stimulus payment.  Looks like a win win for the other guy in my case. 

My disclaimer is that the local chapters of the the organizations I mentioned are full of good people it is the national leadership of the VFW and American Legion that are disgraceful.

    • 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...
