  • 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

What Forms Are Needed

Question

I am getting ready to file for TDIU and wanted to make sure I have everything done prior to filing. Can someone please tell me what forms are needed. I have the 4192, and 8940, completed and ready. Are there any other forms needed.

Thank you,

Bergie

Do you get SSDI? I added the SSDI decision and last employer release statement (VA used last date at *work for IU start date). I also submitted a handful of pages clearly showing in-service diagnosis, current VAMC diagnosis's, SC disability ratings - all to make processing easier for the raters. About six months later I had c&p exams.

Best to ya,

*non-gainful employment but VA saw it as 'proof of some ability to work'.ha.

Cowgirl,

I do not get SSDI, currently I am on workers comp for past 15 months. I had to have my shoulder reconstructed, and now getting physical therapy. I was hoping to get IU when the work comp ends, but we'll see what happens. I've had 3 jobs since returning from Iraq, 2 ended in termination. The current job I've had fairly regular verbal confrontations since I started working there in 2006, been told I'm to confrontational. I've also had 1 physical altercation at my current job that resulted in a written repremand placed in my employee file. The only reason I think I have not been fired is because it is a state civil service job and I'm career conditional. So they would have a hard time trying to fire me.

Bergie,

I think the 15 months of workers comp will be fodder for the

VA to deny IU.

Carlie,

You know I value your opinion, but do you think that If they deny the IU will they consider an increase for my Sc conditions. Or will I have to file for the increase seperately. Because I've read that some vets here have had their SC conditions increased when they filed for IU.

Thank you,

Bergie

    • 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...

    • Thanks Berta for your help. I did receive my 100% today for my IU claim on 6/20/2018. It only took 64 days to complete and it is p&t. Thanks for your words of wisdom.
