  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    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

Deferred Compensation

Question

My VA Disabilty was just increased from 60% to 80% with Parkinson's Disease deferred, Depression deferred, and Individual Unemployability deferred. I was drawing 30% for Depression, why is it now deferred. I assume Parkinson's Disease has been deferred because of the Senator in VA.

No. Your Parkison's Disease being deferred has nothing to do with the Seantor in Virginia. The new presumptives have to complete all of the administrative requirements before becoming law. The proposed presumptives are now at the OMB (Office of Management And Budget) for a final review. Upon final release from the OMB, the presumptives must undergo a mandatory 60 day review period by Congress.This is a requirement of administrative law. It has nothing to do with the Senator from Virginia or even his admendment to delay. If Congress does not decide to change anything or reject the findings, the presumptives then become law at the end of the 60 day review period. The Senator from Virginia, at this point, cannot stop it.

Expected implementation could be anywhere from mid fall to the end of the year. There is a slim possibility that it could be even earlier. Once the new presumptives become law, then those with one of the new presumptives will be moved from deferred status to actual rating, compensation, etc.

In the past, Congress has never rejected a VA presumptive. Don't expect it to happen here either, despite what the Senator from Virginia may or may not want to do.

    • 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...
