  • 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

Question....re: Recorded Message


I check our bank account each month to be sure the VA DD was done.

When I have called the 1-800, (it has always, always said "Sorry we don't have your claim

information, please hold on")

On a whim, I phoned today and this time it gave me the last DD amount and the date it was

made. It was the regular amount.

Many of you know we have an ongoing appeal that has been at the AMC. I'm a realistist,

and until the penny is in your pocket, it's just not there. But, I wonder, since I was told

by AMC the other day, that his file was sent upstairs for rating if this is why I'm not getting

the generic message.

Seems like a trivial question in light of it all, and if I were giving the advise, I'd say "Relax, wait

for the envelope to come and then you will know for sure"

What I'm asking our fellow Veterans is if this has ever happened to them before and what was the


Thank you.

It will show your regular amnount. If you are issued a retro check then it usually takes a few days as the recording sometimes changes. My 2nd retro the recording did not change, The last one it did.

We haven't received the written word of a SC yet. It just seemed odd to hear something other than the "Sorry, we can't access your claim info, etc."

Thank you.....

I just posted a congrats to your message on attaining status of SO and here, you post one to me.

We teach best what we most need to learn. Relaxing, Waiting and if it's meant to be, it shall. If not, then we're onto the

next chapter.

Thanks for the post Larry.

    • 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...
