    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

Hiring Benefits For 30% + Dav

Recommended Posts

Thanks to all for this great forum,

I have a SCD (30 Yrs.), will soon have total knee replacement surgery..... Am wondering what I can do afterwards as far as preferential treatment towards employment with the Fed G'ment or State G'ment or any additional help that I may be entitled to..Do any private nationwide companies, etc., offer preferential hiring for 30% + Disabled Veterans... I am 52 yrs old. I need help!!! I know that after the surgery I'll be entitled to 30 to 60% disabilty from the VA, but I still need something or I'll lose my house, which is not great and I'm upside down on... The job I now work is not going to wait on me to recuperate and get up to full or even half speed..............

Thank You So Much,

Shillnav - Steve

Most govt agencies won't even touch you until you have recuperated from whatever surgery you are having done I spent 2 decades at the Postal Service and they were even getting rough on SC vets when I left in 2000 good luck but most companies don't offer 10 point veterans any preference except state and federal jobs

The Fed Lists all Job Openings at USAJobs.gov. You can put resumes, fill out apps, leave on file for positions of interest for all agencies and they will contact you when there is an announcement made. Avet gets a 5 point preference and a disabled vet 10 points. Find the Code Ex: 510 Auditor, Location TX, look for open announcements you qualify for if any. If not look at requirements and leave interest for them to call you when opening comes up.

But Fed jobs are becoming far and few due to all these budget problems. Anotheer month or so IRS will be hiring Temps for coming filing season. Period of training, then processing, and preparing, filing reurns for 6 months to 9 months.

As far as disability Fed has I believe has Law and hires handicapped and alters office locations to accomidate disabled. So do some very major Nat'l companies. Saw just last week some announcements forget where I have amnesia but retired 27 yrs IRS 100%.

Check with your VAMC on the job issue.........also you will get 100% for several months due to the knee replacement.

You could also look into Voc Rehab.

If the knee is service connected you will get 100% for 12 months. Unless there are problems afterwards your rating will be 30%. I had my first of three total replacements in 1998 and just got bumped up to 60%. The service connected knee has been operated on nine times. I said all that to say this. Before you leave the hospital try and get a copy of the Dr's procedure with dates and etc. That should be all you would need in filing for convelesant.

The faster you file the quicker the money comes. Good Luck!

    • 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...
