    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

Got My Decision Today On My Claim


hello all on this fourm....ive had my highs and lows on this fourm, and just wanted u all to know i got my raiting today when i got home form my girlfriends house. i was surprised that i got it in just over 2 weeks! i got raited at 70% for ptsd and tinnits from combat service as an infantryman in iraq.....i was only really expecting about 30, and was greatly surprised when i opened my "brown evlope". the description is way to long for me to type out. the only thing that stood out and kinda grabed my attention was this:

"Since there is a liklihood of improvement in the condition, the assinged evaluation is not considerd permanent and is subject to a future review examination"

how often do u get these reevaluations?

thanks for all ur help

First of all Congrats we don't see many here who say that they got more than expected. If you are working this is a good rating as you probably can get.

The reevaluations don't come often.

If you cannot work for any reason ask for TDIU which will give you a 100% rating in most cases.

Congratulations on winning your claim!

I also have a 'temporary' rating, but it is not for MH. It said I would be evaluated at a future date, but they didn't list the date! Doh! I put in an IRIS request to find out. Later in the week they responded and said I would be re-examined for the condition approximately 12 months after the effective date on my claim. I don't know if you will be re-examined at the same interval, but you can find out.

Conrats on your quick rating.

Re-evaluations usually happen at 1 - 3 - or 5 years.

    • 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...
