Unemployability?

Question

Hey people, Im new here. I was wondering as to the possibility of total unplayability. I am only 10% for my knees now and Im trying to get PTSD SC. But I have a history of DOZENS of jobs when I got out out the military. I just looked at my Social Security job record: I had 60 jobs from 1992 through 2007, thats an average of 4 jobs a year. So what do I do or need to do???

You need to get a psychiatrist to say you have PTSD and that you are unemployable. You need a verifiable stressor as well. I would say to get into treatment for PTSD first thing.

We , in order to assist you in your beneficial quest would need more history. Inservice stressors? Buddy's who can testify to these stressors as witnesses. Family problems? Marriage/marriages. Seen by mental health professionals in service and post these years? Awards inservice ie CIB, CAR, Bronze star"v", etc? Psychologists and psychiatrics seen? Medication taken for depression, mental health disorders? Anxiety diagnoses? Legal, financial, personal, criminal problems during these years.

What claims have you put in for? When?

Fill us in and we will offer suggestions here from all the great vets/vets families involved in the claims processes.

I know it is alot to answer to but any/all you can share will be of benefit to you and your endeavors. :D

    • 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...
