  • 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

Ihd & Nehmer

Question

I have always had my file and reviews handled at the Oakland VA Regional office. I just received a letter from the VA San Diego Regional office that they will be providing a special review in accordance with Nehmer VA.

Any idea what they would move my file from my main Regional office? Just curious.

Thanks

As I understand it, there were Nehmer centers chosen to help out the regional VA offices. Nehmer cases have to have a special rating review too, I think. Nothing to worry about. You will be hearing something soon, I'm sure.

Good luck.

Sounds like you were a Nehmer class or found to be a Nehmer class claim (previously denied for IHD). I have a friend who filed a year ago and their claim went from Texas to Seattle, Washington. My claim went from Texas to Minnesota, but as yet my claim has not been recognized as Nehmer. Nehmer claims are to have specialized reviews and adjudication. It is possible that the claims will be sent out of state or to a more specialized department. More agent orange,IHD,and Nehmer info can be found here at hadit. Others here will be able to answer and have more details. The Nehmer guidelines were helpful to me.

These responses are correct.

Due to the Nehmer Court Order the VA can be sanctioned for any major errors in the adjudication of the Nehmer claims.They are specialized teams who are trying to decide these claims correctly.

My AO claim originated at Buffalo VARO in Auig 2010 and then was sent to Nehmer Division at Philadelphia VARO.

I was told it has been ready to rate since April 2011 but have received no further word from them except request for a probate court document (I am an AO widow and they need proof of any AO widow's legal estate standing)

Also I received a few months ago, a letter confirming I am in the Nehmer Class Action.

Only AO claims that involved a past denial for what is now one of the 3 new presumptives are Nehmer claims.

NVLSP ( the lawyers who won the Nehmer Class Action) want to hear from any vet or widow who had a past AO claim denied and have filed again under the new presumptives.

Their contact info is in our AO forum.

They are pro bono lawyers and will review any AO Nehmer decisions for accuracy if the vet or widow has contacted them and filled out their questionnaire.

    • 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...
