  • 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

I do. I finished Voc Rehab in 1999 with a BA Degree. Re-entered in 2008 to pursue my PhD. More importantly my re-entering Voc Rehab exceeded the 12 year mark of discharge.

That is VERY exciting to know!!!!!!!Sailorman

Congratulations!

I know what it is like to return to college after decades -it is both horrible and WONDERFUL!!!!!!

When I returned tp college and enrolled in AMU -no parking problems and no snow storms to make me late for classes-

I finished my degree on line at AMU.

Then again I found on line college was much harder then traditional-

but that might have been because I was civilian in a military university.

We were mandated to take a technical writing course before we could proceed with our degree program as internet college is primarily 99% written thesis and exams etc etc etc.

One of my first thesis submissions on tactical battle maneuvers in the Vietnam war had my USMC Major prof's name on cover page but one pixel off.

I had not used the centering thing for it in Word. I was tired ,the submission deadline was close, and I figured he would never notice that.

He called me up from Quantico to chastise me on the pixel error.

And then he told me I got an A.

My husband didnt do well in Voc Rehab due to his SC disabilities.He was at Corning college -not internet clases and the college did give him accomodations to his PTSD but when he had major CVA they dropped him from, Voc Rehab.

Is the vocational rehab tied in with your remaining Montgomery G.I. Bill time remaining. That's what the Vocation Rehab. Counselor told me.

good question -I dont know- in some cases the GI Bill can be transferred now to dependents.

The VA web site under Educational Icon or Mil.com could better answer that unless someone here knows.

Voc Rehab and GI bill are vastly different but maybe the Voc Rehab counselor is correct-

Was he/she trying to get you to use your GI bill instead of Voc Rehab?

    • 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...
