  • 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

Sent My Vso A Second Letter Aking If She Sent The Va My Request


I sent my VSO a letter requesting she request my case be moved up because of my bad health. I asked her two months ago to ask the VA if I qualified to have my case advanced under 38 C.F.R. § 20.900 . She never gave me a response, so I do not know if she had done what I requested on my behalf as my VSO for the American Legion.

So, I faxed her again asking if she did what I asked, and what was the response if any.

Here is some of what I sent here (again).

Isent (Faxed) a request to you to send a request to the VA to requestmy case be moved up, because I believe I qualify for my case to bemoved up, due to serious health issues. My disease is an Auto-Immunedisease (Necrotizing Pancreatitis, with complications (PancreaticPsuedocysts, Splenic Vein Thrombosis, and many more serious healthissues.).

I am asking if I fall under 38C.F.R. § 20.900


MY random thoughts while lying here sick pissed off...

I just don't understand why communication is so bad with so many offices, with anyone having to do with the VA...

a simple yes or no is better than nothing.. I relalize I am among many thousands of Veterans asking for help... but a simple answer,, is that too much to ask...

I relalize that some people are sicker than others, but I doubt that most are not as in as bad of condition... maybe a lot are, but percantage wise, No.

If these condtions don't qualify me just say so... stop jerking me off.. Who is watching the VA???

I asked her two months ago

I'm going to be straight forward and suggest you change POA to some other VA advocate. Two months without even a phone call tells me her priorities doesn't include you!

I would suggest that you contact and ask VA directly, depending where your claim is could cause further delays in a decision. By contacting VA directly, VA should be able to give you a quicker response if you qualify for an advancement on the docket and then you will have to wait for a decision.

    • 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...
