  • 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

Authorized At Amc

Question

I was informed by the 800 number people that my favorable BVA decision has been authorized this month (12th). Also, I received a letter from the DAV informing me that they reviewed the AMC decision and that I would be receiving an award letter.

Question: Does anyone have any experience with this. After authorization, how long should I expect to wait for the "official" award letter from the AMC? 1 month, 2 months, somewhere in between?

Appreciate any help you can provide.

I don't think anyone here has a crystal ball inside of the VA Gardener!!! I wish we did!! But I think the best answer you will get is it should not be very long at all now!! Congrats

It still may have to be sent back to your home RO. Why not ask the 800 number or your DAV

Thanks for the quick responses!

I called the 800 number and was told it was authorized on July 12. Also talked with the local DAV (after receiving a letter from the DAV in Washington in June) and was told probably should receive the retro at the end of this month (keeping fingers crossed). I also believe that the award letter will come directly from the AMC and not the home RO (my RO said they were not involved with this claim).

I just wanted to see if anyone had any personal experience and could give me a timeline of what they experienced after being told their claim was authorized at the AMC.

Thanks for the congrats Chu Lai69.

Gardner,this is my my experience with The BVA.I help this veteran get service connected for ptsd,after he had been denied two times,it was send to the BVA in Washington DC and approved September 2005.BVA dont rate,and it was send back to the regional office for a rating and it was December 2005 when when award letter was received,but this a regional office that have a lot of backlogged claims,so it all depends how backlogged the claims is at your regional office,so dont worry (RIGHT) lay back and relax,you will get it. Hope this helps!

    • 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...
