2900-An54 And The Cra

Question

Just got a call from my Congresswoman about an email I sent to her in regards to 2900-AN54 and the CRA. She assured me that there is no way congress will go for a resolution to disapprove the final rule. I asked about when she thought the VA would start payments on this and she said the end of October. She seemed very confident that is a done deal. She has always been a very active veteran advocate in congress and I think her info is reliable.

On page 3 of this document and I quote.........

"However, VA now knows that based on the publication date of the final rulemaking the timing will not allow payments to begin prior to FY 2011. As a result, VA expects FY 2010 and FY 2011 costs will both now occur in FY 2011. These costs include retroactive benefit costs in the first year and increased benefit costs for veterans currently on the rolls."

Does that mean we will see no money until 2011 sometime?????

FY 2011 actually starts Oct. 1st., 2010. The 60 day delay on payments will end on or about Oct. 30, 2010 and payments should start on or shortly after Oct. 31, 2010. We should be hearing about success stories and payments being made in early Nov., 2010.

ranger43 it seems there is a lot of confusion about the 60 day delay and the Congressional Review Act. Sen, Webb's amendment only prevents funding the final rule for 60 calendar days from the effective date of the rule. The effective date of the rule is Aug. 31, 2010 and 60 days from that date is Oct. 30, 2010. On Oct. 31 the funding will be available to the VA for payment of claims. The CRA allows for 60 session days or legislative days, which ever is longer, to overturn the rule by a Joint Resolution of Disapproval. It is highly unlikely a Joint Resolution of Disapproval will happen on this issue. Some believe that Congress wants to have a vote against a joint resolution before the elections to get on record that they are in favor the rule. This would have to happen by Oct. 31. Although it is not on the calendar yet, some Reps. brought up the issue on Tuesday in open speeches that the rule needs to go forward. Sort of opening the door to put it on the calendar and voted on before they go out of session.

    • 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...
