  • 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

Tdiu At Finance

Question

I was informed yesterday that my appeal for TDIU is at finance.

I don't want to get too excited yet because i'm afraid it might get deferred back again but I guess I shouldn't fret too much since it's at finance.

The DAV fellow said that it will have to get two more sigs since the retro is more than 20k. Is this normal procedure?

Also, about how long does it take after claims go to finance? one week? two weeks? more?

Thanks to everyone here. Looks like the waiting is almost over.

I sure hope so jbasser. I couldn't come at a better time. Until last year I have never been in serious debt but this year sunk me. I have over 40k in CC debt due to loss of job and some old health bills before I became service connected.

Thanks for the uplifting post,

Jerr

My VSO is at the RO. I talked with him today and he said he has to sign off on it tomorrow or monday (closed Friday). He said after he signs off on it he will call me with the details. I really hope he calls me tomorrow.

Every day waiting has become like eternity.

Thanks,

Jerr

    • 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...
