When To File For Iu

Question

Hello world. I have seval issues but this is the one I have a issue with. Earlier this year I filed for benifits and a increase. I recived on them all. From 10% to 20% on lower back and 0% to 30% for PTSD. I appealed the PTSD bit cause I didn't know who to trust in the beginng of all this. And alot have cone out in getting the help that I need. But here it is. I havent worked in years and was told I cant apply for IU intill my rateing is 60% or higher. I have no problems with that but have issues with it.

Is it posable to file depending on the out come of the appeal?

One of the first mistakes people make when they do their C&P exam is hold back or go to far. An example would be if you hurt your back and they ask you to bend down as far as you can, but your in pain from the start, moving at all is bad. The more you give them, the less you'll get. Also, people move to quickly. To move five inches should ave taken ONE minute. You can call me on a this saturday from 1200 EDST to 1900 EDST @ 703-598-5710. I can go over so much with you. I look forward to hearing from you.

You can file for TDIU now. The sooner you file the better. If you can't work due solely to your SC conditions you should get IU. By waiting to file you are giving up potential money.

If you haven't been able to work because of your service connected ptsd and lower back,you need to get a statment form your psychiartist of psychologist and other medical provider stating that you are unable to work because of your service connected disabilites. Your disabilities need to be stated in detail and resubmit to va because if you are unable to work because of your service connected disabilities.you could be rated at 100%.

    • 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...
