    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

Im the soldier who got hurt @ 17, while on active duty active and spent 2 yrs in the hospital after almost losing my leg. I followed thier advice about having a traumatic service connected injury and after 33 yrs of being unemployable getting nowhere, and surviving on a 60% rating. I found HADIT. I followed thier advice for about a yr now and low and behold from 60%service connected to an increase of 70% for PTSD, several increases of 10% for secondarys and permanant and total disablity inclusive of IU for a 100% rating!!! I can't tell you how Gtateful I am, only to say that may god always bless all of you for your continued, unrelentless efforts to see that every veteran, combat and otherwise recieve All the benifits they may be entitled to.! I also recieved retro in excess of 25.000 and can finally help my family and live financially secure. Again god bless you ALL and i hope to one day to give back a lil support or advice to my fellow soldiers in arms weather on Hadit or a VA hospital or another homeless and forgotten VETERAN!

That is wonderful.

Now, before you sit around the house and get depressed (it happens, quite a bit, to those who have spent a long time "fighting the good fight" and suddenly they find themselves with nothing to do and nothing to look forward to) get yourself down to your local VA Medical Center and walk up to the "Volunteer Desk" and report for duty!

You will be twice blessed, trust me.

rikkor,

YIPPEE and Congrats, your stress should be reduced a bit by this.

I want you to keep in mind that the 25K in retro, will really go fast,

spend it WISELY as it doesn't come along often.

Spoil yourself and family a little but try not to go hog wild.

If you can keep you a nice little cushion out of it

that no one else even knows about, maybe just 3 or 4 K.

If you are able - try not to do alot of things that raises your monthly over head

to where you start feeling financially strapped each month.

I have seen quite a few vets that went from about 50 percent

to 100 percent and within a fairly short period of time their retro money

was gone and they had already started living from check to check, sometimes

not even having grocery money for their last week of the month.

This is mainly due to getting a jump in finances and not prioritizing the money right

and not running their households on a budget.

I really don't understand when this happens, even Suze Orman and Donald Trump

run their households on a budget ~ just much bigger than ours.

If you do these things you will have even more of a feeling of security.

Watch out for "friends and relatives" that may come crawling out of the woodwork

and need a secret surgery, but don't have the cash ~ lol.

I'm not trying to boss you around here, it's YOUR money and you may already

know very well how to handle it.

I'm just pointing out what you can do to keep that secure feeling.

jmho,

carlie

    • 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...
