How Do They Notify Me Next?

Question

Hi all,

Filed my paperwork July 1, got my C & P exam Sept 1. I know, and the examiner confirmed that I will get service connected disability for my prostate cancer residuals.

When they have finally figured out the amount, how am I finally notified? Does it just show up in my bank account one day? Or do I get a packet of paper that explains the compensation amount, and then wait another couple months?

Appreciate any info from anyone who has successfully been through the entire process.

It depends sometimes the money hits the bank before you get the award letter, that has happened to me once, the most recent time it was the other way; I received the award letter explaining benefits and the money came about a week later. Good luck and congrats.

You will know when you walk outside one morning and a big armored cash truck is parked in the driveway. If the trucks empty that's bad news.

You will receive a letter along with a rating decision. With the new system that the VA uses you may get your money (if direct deposit) before your letter arrives via the US Postal Service.

Hi all,

Congratulations on a speedy claims process, Boro. You have been through a lot, and I'm glad that you caught that AO presumptive illness in time. As you may know, the examiner sends your C&P exam to your VA regional office for a rater to review your file and award you the service connected disability. I see where you report that you are SC 30% already. Is that a direct deposit? I'm just guessing here, with the way things are going in the system, I would hope that you receive your award letter within 90 days. When you receive your award letter then the increase in comp will go to you the same way your existing 30% SC comp. does now.

Have you received your award letter from the VA yet?

It could show up in your checking account before you even get the letter-

I am assuming (and might be an A_S) that you are AO incountry Vietnam Vet and have prostate cancer residuals due to AO exposure?

WOW- your claim is moving fast.Then again it should be a fast decision if you are AO vet.

    • 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...
