  • 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

Best Online School For Veteran's

Question

What schools have you attended online with Voc Rehab that are Veteran Friendly? I was recently approved for Voc Rehab and am researching what online schools are best.

I have attended university of phoenix and western governers university in the past with GI Bill, found both OK but am looking for some other input.

Thank you

You can go to a book store and get a book that describes all the universites and colleges that offer distance learning. Many very well known schools offer distance learning even in subjects like computer science and other science things where you can make some money.

American Military University-

I was their second civilian enrollment under Chap 35 in 2003 but they are active mil and veteran friendly and most of their students are vets or in the Military.(as well as their faculty. I only had 2 civilian professors there.)

They are familiar with VA educational benefits and have a wide range of degree courses.

They transferred most of my credits from a traditional college into my degree program.

I agree with everyone below and find them to be great for vets. I wish I did more research, but I am attending Capella and love it. I have no problems getting items needed and things are running smoothly. I feel it is a personal preferance and what you would like to study to make a determing factor. Best of luck...

My daughter attends American Military University and is doing quite well. She is about half way through for her MBA. Great GPA too. The classes are very hard and do require a lot of time to study, but when she is done with this, she will go for her Doctorate too. All under my Chapter 35, thank heavens. She previous had her BA prior to my 100% PT award.

She also does the work program with Dept of Vets Affairs, and is paid there for this at minimum wage rate.

Please be careful on what you do choose. I saw a program on PBS about some veterans and some of the most advertised colleges were just "recruiting" veteran students. One student had TBI and all were left pretty much in debt, without a degree. Transfer of credits were an issue also. One link might be:

Good luck and you are doing the right thing to check them out.

    • 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...
