    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

I am a 100% disabled Veteran. Service Connected for Cyclical Bi-polar, Major Depressive Disorder w/psychosis.

I am Married and have 2 children ages 3 and 1.

I receive $3007.00 /mo. from the VA

I've been denied twice for SSD benefits.

It took 7 years for me to finally get a 100% rating.

When I finally got it I received 1 years retroactive pay because I had reported a worsening of my symptoms 1 year prior to my last claim at my local VA Clinic. approx. $25,000.00 worth

I get free admission to all State parks.

I get 0 down on home loans with no closing costs to me and a guaranteed low interest rate based on current rates with at least a 620 credit score. (I got 4.5% on a $95,000.00 loan with a 629 Closing on Friday the 15th of July 2011) Whew!

I receive a 100% property tax credit every year. Property Taxes must be escrow-ed and then a tax return must be filed as normal every year to receive the credit. (For me a value of around $3,000.00 a year.)

I and my wife will be able to retire at any Wisconsin Veterans Retirement community when necessary.

My 2 boys will be able to have their Tuition paid for when they go to college. (God forbid any law changes until then)

I squandered my MGIB benefits on an attempt at a degree in Information Technology. :( Nothing left there now.

Vocational Rehab is available but they seem to be sticklers for your career choice. I haven't checked much into it. Also the new 9/11 GI Bill may be worth a gander as well.

I'm learning more as I go. For More info on all benefits Please see....http://dva.state.wi.us/benefits.asp

If you need help buying your first home please feel free to contact me...chad at kennow dot net (<--just trying to avoid spammers) :D

Hope this helped.

    • 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...
