    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

C & P Exam

Question

I received a letter from the VA (Houston) that states they want to schedule a C&P exam to see what my current physical health is, but they also want to do another exam for my PTSD (currently 30%). I can understand the physical part which is related to my agent orange issues, but did I piss someone off at the VA to get reexamined for the PTSD?

Just tell the Doc you are from Bloody Harlan.

Just joking. It probally isnt a big deal, they may just want to see if your condition has changed.

How long ago were you rated reviews are nothing new every few years is normal unless a veteran has been rated at 100% P&T then they only do reviews when they ask for another claim and then everything comes back into play I have heard some say that they have been called in just before they reach the 10 year mark

even SSD does reviews on people that are disabled if it's something they think might get better then they review every 3 years and those with severe disabilities get reviewed every 7 years I was found disabled by SSD for my cardiac problems in early 2003 I just did my review 2 months ago all by mail worked for me all they asked is where I have been seen and for what by which doctors all I told them I was worse and had also been diagnosed with PTSD since I had become by my CAD.....

they wrote back and told me that if I returned to work notify them otherwise they will contact me again sometime in the future which I hope is about 2017 if I am still alive which will make me 62 then that should probably be my last review if I live that long because when I turn 65 or 67 they will change my status from SSD to SSA and that should stop any future reviews.....

with the VA no rating is GUARANTEED until a veteran has held it for 20 years.....

Many are not aware but any time you ask for a change you are reviewed by the VARO. Rarely do they change anything. SS reviews are a little different and eventually they send you a form with 5 or 6 boxes which if you check no changes you will get a letter and say your review is over.

The norm for the VA; I was awarded 70% PTSD and 10% + 10% for hearing and tinnitus, the review concluded I was having employment issues since I held positions at over 15 different companies in a 3 year period and was terminated from all 15 for aggressive behaviour or challenging authority. Consequently they sent a form along with the original award letter requesting me to apply for 100% PTSD due to unemployablity issues. Now I'm waiting for the C&P notification after applying for the 100% but that is ok because I'm just as aggressive, just as depressed, have major anxiety and hypervigilence, probably more so then before! Don't sweat it, just go in and tell the truth as it really happened just like the first time and remember when the examiner asks "how are you doing today"? If you have PTSD the correct response should be " Well if I'm here I can't be doing very well now can I"!! Good luck Brother!

    • 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...
