    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

Question

Hello everyone!!! I first want to say thank you. This site is a wonderful place of information and support!!! My husband is 36 y/o PTSD veteran, He was granted 100% temp 6 years ago. Since then he has continued treatment, RX, and therapy. Today is a good day!! We filed for P&T in January. Today we got the decision and it is 100% P&T!!!! WOW!!! Competency is not in question!!! I am so excited that I wanted to share this wonderful news. DAV sent an application for CHAMPVA and VA sent a pamphlet for education info!!! Very suprised at the rating after reading the QTC report!!! Dr. reported everything was normal and appropriate!!! No eye contact made by patient GAF of 46. But we have alot of reports from DR's over the last 6 years that VA decided that even though the QTC exam did not support 100 p&T the other evidence (including ssdi disability for ptsd only) that more weight was given for the 100 P&T rating!!! All I can say is A BIG SIGH! WHOO!

That is GREAT!

It appears that the VA actually considered the overwhelming evidence FOR, instead of latching onto the ONE dubious piece of evidence against..........congratulations to the VA.........maybe they are beginning to grow up and act like responsible adults.

No eye contact and a GAF of 46 is significant. I am very pleased with your win.

i can feel your relief in your post. this is great news for you and your family. PTSD is enough to deal with, without worrying how you are going to get by financially. so glad hadit.com could be of help, the members here are really great, without them, well there would be no hadit.com to speak of, just me talking to myself :)

make sure to check out your state benefits often there is a real estate or rent tax credit for 100% permanent and total disabled veterans, some states have great benefits, others just a few, but do check it out, it's worth the time. check here http://www.hadit.com/forums/index.php?/forum/64-veterans-benefits-state-federal/ and make sure you take care of yourself, being a spouse/partner of a PTSD sufferer can be stressful. Keep encouraging him and get stress relief when you need it, thank you taking care of your veteran.

stick around if you can and lend a hand, research for veterans here or just lend a supportive comment. but most important take care of you and yours first and always.

Thanks to everyone!!! AND YES IT IS A BIG SIGH OF RELIEF!!! Now I just need to try and get hubby to understand that this is a good thing. I am still baffled at VA' s decision!!! I thougt for sure we would have to file a NOD for this but I guess good things can happen to good people!!! My husband now calls me the BULLDOG!! HA HA I think its kinda funny!! But dang it I am sick and tired of reading and hearing these horrible stories about how vets are treated!!! I don't think anyone would ever wish to have the problems and hurddles they have now caused by the VA! REALLY< let's get a grip and do the right thing VA!!! One thing that had helped is I have saved every piece of paper ever written by military pre discharge to every paper post military!! I am not saying that everthing is peachy keen now but I will say that this hurddle is over for now!!! We will jump the next one when we get to it. With my husband being so young I am sure there will be another exam around the corner somewhere but for now we will JUST BREATHE FOR A CHANGE (or at least I will try), he is still on pins and needles!!! I will do what ever is necessary to help him and my family to not be ran over by the VA. I want us to be able to enjoy our girls and help them as well!! THANK YOU FOR THiS SITE AND THE WONDERFUL PEOPLE WHO MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR US TO VENT AND ASK QUESTION THAT WE WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO FIND ANYWHERE ELSE!!! THANKS HADIT!!

    • 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...
