    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

Ils Home Assessment On March 19th

Question

I've read many posts on Independent Living, but what can I expect to gain from it!

Also, I'm currently awaiting TDIU decision from 70%! I've call the 800 number and my claim is still at the rating board awaiting a decision as of March 5th.

I'm confused as to why I am having an home assessment now since I'm only at 70%? After this assessment, will it help my case for TDIU. The rep said that it won't affect my case at the rating board at this time but it will in the future. The last thing I want is to have my case pulled from the rating board....if you understand what I'm saying!

Please help! I'm a very new member (long time reader thou) and would appreciate some in sight into this!

Welcome and nice to hear your 'virtual' voice here at Hadit. I sure wish you the best o'luck with your TDIU request - being St.Paddys day!

As far as Independent living assessment, I cannot speak to that, but am curious all the same. What did you and your counselor target for your interest and needs? housing adaptions? hobbies or social type media (computers, TV)??

Hope you post after the visit so we continue to learn how it goes.

Best to ya,

Cowgirl'with an adopted Irish Happy-tude!

Bravo6 - what do you need from the program ? Get lost and need a GPS ?

Home Computer etc...

Did you request anything through ILP ?

Bronco6 - Don't depend on using the 800 # for any accuracy in checking the

status of your claim and where it's at in the process.

Your claim could easily be at what you were told is the "rating board" and a decision maker

decide something needs more development.

You might be getting closer to a decision - but many suggest to find a hobby.

jmho,

Unlike some of the others we deal with at VA ILS is usually Vet Friendly. They will come out and assess your needs so if I wanted something I would be sure and ask. If you have old equipment needed show it to them.

    • 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...
