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

    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

Possibly One Way To Determine If Va Is Processing Your Claim Under Nehmer


BERTA: Per your question: Has anybody had a C & P for the new presumptives?

I had one back in April.

When I filed my claim for CAD(IHD) back in Jan, 2010, the VA Reno,NV RO assigned my claim number that was assigned to me when I had my original AO physical back in the 1980's.

So for those who are wondering if thier claim is going to be processed under "Nehmer"; my opinion is to check your claim number. If your claim number is not your SSN or Service Serial number; then your claim is probably being processed under Nehmer.

Could you clarify. The last correspondence I recieved from VA had a refer to number of 014DS333. Do you know what this number is in reference to?

Your claim number stays the same as long as you have any claims at the VA.

In past before SS numbers were used the VA used a numbering system. Now almost all if not all claims for veterans is tracked by their social security number. If the VA is using any other number then it is likely because you have an early claim that had a number and it will not change.

I have not seen or heard of any special numbering of claim file folders due to any other reason.

That is good news to hear-Tom

As to the 'refer to number of 014DS333.'

This is an identifier for the VARO , and the initials are usually the person's initial's who is handling your claim.

The last three digits usually denote the VARO- mine is 307 Buffalo NY-I dont know what the other numbers mean.

I use the the referral initials after Attention to:

and then Veterans Administration Regional Office, etc etc on the envelope as well as in my letters or submissions-when I send them stuff.

If you don't mind please post if your claim number has changed since your first claim.

No change from it numerically since it was my husband's claim number in 1983 except there is an X before the C

XC denotes the claimant is a survivor of the veteran after the veteran dies and they get 21-534 form.

    • 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...
