    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

Your post states ..."husband had several marriages and children some of which were registered as dependents but not paid for..." therefore I wonder this? has he been paying child support for these kids? has he ever received dependent compensation $ ? I am wordering if you could just put in a claim for it .

Does he use a VSO? How many years are you looking at? Do you have any documentation that verifys the VA received the appropriate forms for dependent care compensation monetary benefits?(names/DOB/SS#) How many years are you talking?

(If I were him I would put in a claim for back pay never received for the one's registered, and put in for the one's not registered. I don't think you have anything to lose and could gain for the kids.

Also I have not heard of an audit being done for dependents, but I am sure the VA does audits for alot of things.

I filled later in life and only received dependent care for one child only a few years; she's now in Graduate school, so it's been on us.

Good luck and hopefully others versed in this area will post.

Yes for all children he has paid child support and filed taxes for them before he was made 100%.

He has 5 kids and all but one are registered with VA (or were before they turned 18). The thing is we were looking at all the ratings letters and payment notices and only 2 of the kids were payed for, the VA told us the others weren't paid for because the birth certs weren't "available" at the time of rating. We ordered my husband C-File for dependent information, and it shows birth certificates for all of his children including the one that they never added to the system and the VA date stamp says all certs were received at the same time this file also includes the form to add dependents which has all their names and the Tax statements showing he was paying for all of them. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

The VA had this information and didn't include it in rating, one of his kids was never eligible for the DEA education benefits because they didn't add him to the system, even though they had his birth certificate as evidenced by it being in his c-file. Most kids were still in elementary school when he became disabled, three of them were living with him at the time. he was payed only for two of these.

This is going back starting in 1988 when he became 100%

Especially wondering about this because the son that was not added wants to go to school but can't afford it. It would be nice if we could help him out via the DEA educations benefits he is supposed to be entitled too.

Has anyone else had this problem????

WARNING!!!!! Once you start going through your C-File you start finding all sorts of crazy stuff that needs to be corrected. Make sure you have the state of mind and time to deal with it all!!!! :)

I am not sure if an appeal would be the route or a new claim to try and go back for the funds...not being well versed in dependent claims, it is something I will try and find info about. I am going to try and find info in my VBM, but we will see. Chapter 35 I believe you are talking about for child education.

Berta is one who is versed in this area too, hopefully she will respond, or another with knowlegde in this specific subject matter. If I find anything that may be helpful, I will post.

    • 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...
