  • 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

Question

Been gone for awhile, been going thru some pretty intense therapy. I have a question for everyone. I have a NOD in and an application for TDIU. I am currently at 50 % SC. My VSO and therapist thought 70 % was a no brainer after a well written c & p exam.

My question is this , called my Vso to see where my claim was at in the system. It showed everthing as being recieved that they requested. It showed that the DRO sent it over to TDIU dept . Is it just wishful thinking on my part that in order for TDIU to be granted i would need atleast a rating of 70 %. Would that possibly mean that the DRO Awarded the 70 % and then sent it over for TDIU consideration. Thanks for the replies.

It sounds good to me-I didn't know they had a TDIU department but if the DRO granted 70% than that would trigger them to work the TDIU application.

A vet can apply for TDIU regardless of their SC rating.

And it can be awarded -based on the medical evidence.

The 70% triggers the VA to consider TDIU even if the vet has not formally applied.

Have you applied for SSA disability too?

Have you been to Voc Rehad to see a counselor yet? That would be a step that I would pursue IMO! It worked for me for TDIU!

Berta ,

I have not applied for SSA yet , i will real soon. Kind of have alot on my plate right now. Thanks for your reply.

Bravo6,

I had my VOC REHAB appt about 3 weeks ago. The counselor told me it was not a good idea at this time to pursue as it may screw up my TDIU claim. Also said i would need in writing from my DR that i was stable ( on meds and anger under control ) and still not drinking in order for them to start me in program. I tend to be a little confrontational.

    • 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...
