  • 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

Awaiting Rating Decision

Question

I went to the RO today to get a claim update for my PTSD and right knee increase. The lady turned the screen around to me so I could see and the huge words "Awaiting Rating Decision" jumped out at me. I haven't even had a C&P for my claim of PTSD yet.

I guess they don't need one. I do have a PTSD diagnosis and I signed a release for them to get my Vet Center notes.

I think I may have to NOD a low-ball rating. We'll see. :)

they do NOT normally rate a claim for PTSD until after the stressors have been verifed and a C&P exam are done, it has been done before without them but that is not the NORMAL procedure I would not get my "hopes" up on getting a rating until I see the paperwork you could just be setting yourself for a great big fall when dealing with the VARO expect nothing and then you won't get disappointed if you get a grant then you can celebrate I wouldn't do it ahead of time the depression that comes with a denial is tremendous just remember to appeal appeal and appeal until you get the award you think is the right one do not just give up and quit because they either say no or lowball the award

Great...... I have a appeal for PTSD in the works, I went to a IMO MHP and visited the MHP 8 times got a diagnosis, of PTSD with a 40 GAF. I have had a C&P last year for the original denial. a year ago. Is it standard procedure to have another C&P exam even though you have a diagnosis from a Mental Health Professional ?

Any chance 2-6 , 50-50 or they will schedule another PTSD C&P ?

I am in the waiting mode.......

Well, I saw for myself on the screen that it said "Awaiting Rating Decision". Just last week it was in the development stages.

I don't think I'm setting myself up for a fall. Thats why I said I may have to NOD a low rating. I'm expecting it. :)

I have been appealing VA decisions since 1995 so I know how they can be.

Oh yeah. My stressor is a CAR along with a few other stressors.

    • 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...
