  • 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

Tdiu Claim At Rating Board

Question

I have been calling the 800 number and my service rep and they both tell me that my claim for TDIU is at the Rating board. I have heard that if your claim is at the rating board thats usually good news?? Means they have something to rate? Does this mean that my TDIU has been awarded?

iron,

Sounds like your claim has been moving around, but at this time

all I would count on is waiting some more.

My claim has been at the board since the 6th if that gives you any idea of how long the wait can take.

I have waited almost 2 months for a rating board to make a decision. They could decide they need more evidence, and send you back for another C&P. To answer your question, yes, it's a good thing it's there, hopefully everything is there that they need. No, it does not mean you will get an approved rating. They're just making the decision if you are disabled, and what rating to give you. (0-100%, or in your case, TDIU or no TDIU) Stay positive about it, but at the same time be prepared for surprises too. Good Luck!

Well, It looks like I will get a decision today! I called the 800 number and she said they have enough information to make a decision and its being reviewed right now. OMG i am soooooo nervous!!! Im expecting the worst! Whatever happens I would like to thank everyone that has helped me in this matter here from Hadit!

Ironsoldier, I don't want to spoil your joy, but it may still be a while yet. Unless the person told you that a decision was being made today (and I don't think they would have that information), it can still be weeks before they actually complete the process.

I'm sorry, but I don't want you to be hanging in a state of suspense for days and days... it's exhausting. I've been through this with decision in the past, and am waiting on a TDIU decision right now. I applied the last week of August 2010, and the 1-800 lady told me the same thing you heard... that everything is ready for a decision and I'll be receiving a letter in the mail.

I'm not going to be holding my breath, because it could be well into next month or even after New Year's. I'm also not counting on good news, but I'm hoping!!

That's how you have to handle waiting for the VA: hope for Sooner, but expect Later.

    • 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...
