  • 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

C & P Exam

Question

I found this board a couple of weeks ago and have been reading posts and learning. I would not have known I could get a copy of my C & P if not for this board, so thanks to everyone. I was in service in 1971 & 72. I was discharged for anxiety and panic attacks. I started soc. sec. for this about 5 years ago. My question is I just got a copy of my C & P today and it says "I do not believe his psychiatric disability pre-existed his military service. It is as least as likely as not that it is related to an incident or incidents of service.

Is this good.

Thanks

Welcome to Hadit. I am service connected for Panic Disorder and was awarded SSD for panic in 1991. Because the attacks were documented in my Service Medical Records I eventually got service connection at 100% P&T.

A good medical opinion that opines that you had panic disorder while you served should do the trick.

Good Luck

I was medically discharged for this, but denied disability in 1975 because they tried to say it was pre-existing. Never had C & P until now, because in 1975 when they set me up for an evaluation I panicked and didn't go.

The opinion you got was a good one but I am concerned about the 1975 decision. You may possibly have a CUE claim from 75. Do you still have that decision?

It wont be easy but you may be entitled to a crapload of retro, Are you an in country RVN vet?

I just didn't go for the c & p in 1975. They said because I didn't show up I was denied and they said they sent me a denial letter, but I don't remember getting one and there was no other correspondance from them. When I was in Washington DC for my BVA hearing my lawyer addressed that to the judge and said we would pursue this after a decision was made on my case.

Thanks

Yes get a decision first and than go for CUE. Looks like you have a good lawyer.

    • 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...
