    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

Ptsd 70% <Paying 100% Unemployable

Question

Hello my sisters and brothers,

I have a question I know for sure one of you will have the answer to.First was given an sc for ptsd at 70% paying 100%IU.

I was told to put in for 100% pt which I did to get a date started on this claim. I received a notice that it was concidered a non-claim because

I was aready drawing 100% Unimployability. also sent paper work showing that I have been trying to get work since Dec 2008, through the texas state

work force comissions veterans program.And of course they have all my records that state that my condition is stagnate and my meds have been increased

througt out my my treatment. My question is- what do I have to do to get these people to declare me 100% permanent and total??? Its been 4 years now of trying

to get better or find a job on these meds that make it impossible to do any work at all.I'm going broke trying to keep up with my wifes medical bills,It would

be nice if I could enroll her into chapter 35,it would help out with our medical bills greatly> THANK YOU BANDIDO BILL

You can be TDIU P&T. All that will change is you will be entitled to extra benefits like ChampVA for family, and other stuff you don't get now

I feel ,when a vet gets TDIU,and some retro, they might want to consider getting an IMO from a Voc Rehab specialist with that retro for the purposes of supporting a P & T claim.

Some disabilities could be difficult to warrant a P & T status but the benefits of P & T are enormous-if an IMO would help.

I have never had a single problem with CHAMPVA and I used Chapter 35 as well.

I have not been medicated for many months now but as I recall CHAMPVA paid 75 % of my meds and will pay that for most brand name meds as well as generics.

I went on the DASH diet and don't need BP meds anymore but I certainly can imagine how this benefit could save money for your wife's health care.

Did the award letter state why they did not find you P & T?

    • 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...

    • Thanks Berta for your help. I did receive my 100% today for my IU claim on 6/20/2018. It only took 64 days to complete and it is p&t. Thanks for your words of wisdom.
