    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

They will go back to the date you filed the claim if it is award.

When did you file the claim?

Welcome to Had It!

A lot depends on when you filed a claim for Schizophrenic/PTSD. I think you are asking if your claim is automatically made if you are getting treatment for a condition, and the answer would be no. I know some claims are inferred, but I do not know which ones. For my condition, I was initially treated over two years prior to being awarded 10% for it, and that took a RO hearing. But this is just what I experienced.

I filed for an increase in my rating back in 2005 and was just granted

100% P&T retro back to 2005. So yes, I think is when you file for an

increase for worsening of condition and it is finally granted.

I had to go the route of BVA though. Different cases are handled according

to the evidence they have and what they need to make a decision. Can be a long

road depending on the complexity of your case.

crowell98335 - there are only three ways I see you getting backpay to 1990. One is that you have an on going claim still under active continuous prosecution from 1990. Two is that they made a CUE on the denial of that claim that is now final. And lastly that the original claim from 1990 was never decided and therefore still remains an open claim. If it doesn't meet any of those conditions I doubt you'll get any retro money. jmo

To tell you the truth it is still a fog in my head I think it was Feb 9, 1990 was the first time I went to the VA hosp

    • 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...
