    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

Help To Locate Percentage

Question

Hello to all of my brothers and sister vets. Can anyone assist me with locating percentages for my husband disabilities. He is on his 20th year in the Army and in 2 years he will be retiring. For the past five years or more he has been going to the doctors with several complaints in order for his medical conditions to be documented. He has an erray of medical condition's, just recently recieved a c-pap machine for sleep apnea. He also has hypertension (taking 3 B/P medicines). The list of all of his medical conditions is the following.

Sleep Apnea (c-pap machine), Knee (both arthritis), Migraines (on meds for this), shoulder(arthritis), elbow (arthritis), wrist (carpal tunnel), ankle (arthritis), vocal cords (damage scarring), acid reflex, lower and upper back pain (arthritis, requiring injections), high blood pressure (three types of meds for this), hypothryroidism (on medication), flat feet, PTSD (mild, talking to shrink), Anxiety (attacls almost every day), gastro for loose stools (upper and lower GI), hearing (mild)

Where can I go inorder to find out the ratings for these conditions? Does anyone here have these conditions and if so....How much has the VA given you? Thank you all in advance.

You can research here. http://www.access.gpo.gov/nara/cfr/waisidx_08/38cfr4_08.html

These are the rating criteria. It's best for you to go through these codes and see what applies to your husband then for us to give generic answers. Your doing the right thing to start researching now.

Thank him for his service for us.

We will be happy to answer any specific questions you may have.

Hello Carlie. I am a disabled veteran who is currently 50% SC. My husband is currently active duty with 20 years in service. He will be retireing in 2 years and I posted some questions regarding his medical issues that he is being treated for. I wanted to gather as much information as I could so he could see what his disability ratings might be when he gets out. My husband never made it a point to go to sick call through out his military career and now that he is approaching retirement I have made it a priority for him to make sure he addresses all of his medical conditions before he gets out of the military. Thank God he is listening to me.

The Schedule of Ratings topic here should help you get some idea of what VA may or may not rate - it is hard to determine what they will do.

Also hard to know what his retirement discharge physical in 2 years will show.

He should look into CRPD and CRSC as well as VA compensation when he retires.

I really apreciate all of the help and advice that you share with the hadit.com forum. You are an angel sent from GOD. Can you please tell me what exactly is CRPD and CRSC. Also someone told me that it would be best for him to be medically retired verses just to retire. Is this true? One of his Doctors felt that he should retire medically because of all his ailments and the severity of his sleep apnea and uncontrolled high blood pressure.My husband of course objects to his primary care doctors reccommendations. The most important part for my husband is being their for his troops and to be medically discharge represents weakness and he shll have no part in that decision. I personally love this man so much and all I want is the best for him. But someone just so happened to tell me that and I just wanted to know f it were true or not to be medically discharged or just to retire regularly. Once again "THANK YOU" for your advice and your time.

    • 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...
