  • 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

C&p Exams

Question

Good morning my fellow Soldiers in Arms.

Before I ask my question I'd like to thank all of you for your continued support, without this forum and your knowledgeable help Id have been lost!

I just recently completed ie. 3/6/10 (3) c&p exams PTSD, xray and ortho.

Id like to know how soon my results/ records will be available to view.

Id like to know where is it that I request these records? Currently@ 60% service connected, the mental health exam went fairly well and I think i will receive 50 or 70% for the PTSD if not low balled.

If you had your C & P exams in the VAMC, you can go to the release of information office and sign a release form and they will mail it to you when it is ready or give it to you if it is completed.

If you had QTC C & P exams then you will have to go to the VARO release of information office and sign the form and they will mail it to you. This may take a lot longer than if you had your C & Ps at the hospital, reason is if you're C & P exams were QTC then the exams must go back/printed at the regional office and attached to your file. If you request a copy of the exams VA will have to reprint it or make copies of the C & P exams and mail them to you. Basically, you sign the form and it goes in a stack of forms request for exams and waits it turn to be printed or copied to be mailed to you.

If I am off someone else will chime in

Hope the best

Normally, if go to the Release of Information Office, they can print off the C&P results once they are entered. In some cases, I call ahead to my VAMC ROI office and they print and insert my records into an envelope, so I just drop in, show ID, and pick them up in person.

Please be aware that the results of the PTSD exam, or any other MH-related records, will most likely need to be approved by someone in the MH clinic, maybe the doctor who performed the exam. Expect that to take anywhere from a day to a couple of weeks. I have found the only way around this is to ask the MH doc to explicitly state this in the records.

    • 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...
