    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

Iu Deferred For 1 Day


Hey guys Im really confused at this. first time I ever went in front of the board. C+P exam scheduled 3 hours lasted 4.5 with Doc saying it was the longest C+P he had ever done. As I was leaving he handed me some ptsd groups papers and told about different locations to go to group.

C+P was in March I got it in May. The question I have is my paperwork said I was rated at 80% IU was deferred. The very next day I get a letter from the VA stating "We are working on your claim for IU" I figured I guess they are starting it for me. I went to the DAV to find out what was going on He told me that they probably already considered me IU but that form needs filled out to put in the file. I told them I was afraid to send it in that I would have to go thru everything again exams boards and so on. If I had to go thru it again I wouldnt file. Im afraid they will say they made a mistake and take it from me. My DAV rep said that it could happen but he had only seen one case in over 10 yrs. I asked about the exam and he said considering I just took it that t was likely they wouldnt schedule another. He pulled my C+P exam and the Doctor stated not working do to disability since 2003. He does not see me going back to work or getting better. The DAV told me he couldnt it say if I would get it or not but they cant say it because someone would sue them for not getting it. He did state though "When/err if you get this com back and talk to me we would discuss all the benefits" He also told me to file for social security I know its not a given to get one and get the other but he said with a DR report that I have and its wording sure would be alot easier. He also stated that claims take 6 months minimum but he said due to the wordng on my report and the recentness of everything look about three months. he said at 70% the reality is many are not going to work the higher it goes the fewer work

What do you think or how long? Oh yeah I am rated for PTSD and it was my first time in front of a board.

Its usually 60 to 90 days after C&P. Looks like you got a good Doc but still you should go to the Release of Information and ask for a copy.

    • 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...
