  • 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

Assistance With Program

Question

My classes online have begun but I still need materials ordered and I have not gotten any communication with my VRC. I simply can't get a hold of him to order my

books and he already knows that my classes have started but has made no effort to get the books needed or responded to my emails and calls.

I feel like I'am being set up for failure, I haven't even received my stipend from last semester when I was under a different counselor. Is this really how this program operates?

What the hell is going on? My classes have started and I still have no books

If your counselor hasn't responded then try calling his/her sup. Maybe he's been off work sick, or vacation.

Your school- whether online or traditional college should have a VA counselor on site or accessible via email or phone.

In my experience this is the way Voc Rehab should work-it is the school's VA liason and counselor who handles the books and other stuff.

When you say VRC I assume you mean the VA person.

," I haven't even received my stipend from last semester when I was under a different counselor"

Say what????

This is ridiculous.

"Is this really how this program operates?"

Absolutely not.

You need to contact the school's VA counselor as well as their Financial Aid officer.

Thanks for the replys.

Cooter, that's a negative I've spoken to people in the office and they say the counselor has just been sitting in his office ignoring all phone calls. I haven't even been paid my stipend from a previous semester when that counselor quit in the middle of my semester without even informing me!!!!! LEFT ME HANGING!!!!!! NOW I"M LEFT HANGING AGAIN!!! I HATE THESE PEOPLE THEY DONT CARE ABOUT ANYONE! They shouldn't have approved enrollment in classes if they were going to do this to me!

Contact your Congressman and have them pose the question. I bet you will have an answer with 3 days. Try it!

    • 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...
