Letter From Va

Question

What does this means and anyone know how long this can take?

This is in response to your recent inquiry on May 27, 2010, in regards to your status of claim.

Our records indicate that your claim is in the final stages of the claim process. When this stage is completed the next process is to send your claim for final approval for release of award and/or notification letter. We will send you a notification letter explaining the decisions made and the action being taken once it has been finalized.

We are unable to answer any questions about the decisions made on your claim until after you have received the notification letter via U.S. mail. If you have any more questions after you have received the letter, please feel free to contact us.

If you can't work file for IU. You probably have a good claim for depression and chronic pain disorder in there somewhere. With all those problems how are you going to work and who is going to hire you? Unless you can do your own business it is going to be hard to hold down a job. Are you in constant pain? What medications do you take?

Continuing back and leg pain every day, I take about six pills, for blood pressure nothing for pain but vitamin M from the base, I am going to get checked up at VA, even though I have Tri-care. I have complained about this for years, but the Air Force just wanted to keep me flying so no drugs they could not get waivers for, too stupid realize that until I was getting out, and I questioned everything, but taking away your flight pay is a big deal I see it clear now but much too late. I have look up everything they said on internet they can only get worse. What should be my next recourse?

Get a written medical opinion that states that you cannot work, that your disabilities make it impossible for you to attain employment and that these conditions will not be getting any better in the future.

Then file for TDIU (VA form 21-8940). Do it tomorrow.

    • 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...
