    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 P&t But With Future Exam Scheduled

Question

Hi all,

Right before christmas my husband and I went to get our ID cards from Fort Jackson in Columbia, SC. It was an interesting event in that the letter the va sent me to obtain the id cards wasn't good enough. It said I was 90%, which I am, and it didn't list that I was entitled to commissary priviledges. the lady there told me that the letter had to say certain things and she gave me a copy of the letter the varo in columbia had just, that day, faxed over so they would know what it would look like. Apparently they had changed the form of the letter after I had received mine. The funny thing is, my letter and the knew form letter said exactly the same thing, word for word, except just in a different format. I pointed this out to the lady, but she said it had to be that form. She told me I had to go over to the varo and get them to do up another letter for me, or I could call and see if they would fax it to us. I opted to call, so they put me at a desk and I called the 1800#. The person there was very helpful and she said she gets calls like that all the time and she would type up a letter and fax it and stay on the line to make sure it was good enough. I told her they needed a certain form letter and asked if that was the one she was going to send over. She said she had one that she liked to use for that purpose. I said, whatever, fax it and if it is not good enough, you'll just have to do it over. So, she faxed it and she put on there that I was 100% P&T and that I had commissary priviledges. Now, this letter was totally different than the letter the va gave me. Actually it was the same form letter they send you when they approve your claim and give you the % you got. Well, so much for it needing to be the exact form, because the lady at fort jackson said "this is what we need." I didn't even bother to ask her why she told me it had to be the exact form letter the lady from the varo had faxed over just that morning. Whew!! Well, we got our ID cards, and this leads me to what my question is really about. Our card expires in Oct because I am scheduled for an exam then. This was not on any of the letters the VA sent me. When the lady at the 800# typed up the letter she had the appointment on there. So, I'm wondering why they gave me P&T, but scheduled me for an exam. Could it be because I'm only 90% on the schedule?

    • 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...
