  • 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

Rating Experts Opinion....how Does Bipolar Effect Ptsd Claim


Recommended Posts

“Are they trying to find loopholes to
screw me “

Possibly......that is the normal; MOS
for VA sometimes.....BUT …

“i have ssdi FOR PTSD and my
inability to work from this. “ If this is solely for the PTSD (and
no other MH conditions) this is an independent medical opinion that
the VA MUST consider to rate you as TDIU.

Have you applied for TDIU? We have the
form and a forum here on TDIU (paid at the 100% rate)

What is the last thing you heard from
VA regarding the claim?

Do you have a vet rep helping you?

You said you didnt claim bi

This is the stuff VA should focus on:

“My c & p reads in pertinent ares
as such:

Were there hospitizations for mental
Three stays for ptsd. “

With the SSDI award (do they know of
that yet) and the C & P exam I really dont foresee any progblems
with the TDIU claim but then again the VA throws us lots of landmines

That is what hadit is for.....you
yourself have already realized that and that is a good thing!!!!

Welcome aboard here and thank you for
your service!

I think you will be OK on this claim but

"Doesnt the va request the info pertaining to my ssdi from ssa."

Yeah, if you signed an authorization form for them to do that. I think it is form 21-22...maybe your VSO should make sure they got those records.

You wouldn't believe the rigamorale the VA caused when my husband got SSDI for PTSD.

I actually had to call the SSA office in Baltimore and then kick some VA ass. He died a few months later and could have been alive to see his 100% if the VA had not screwed up so much. They posthumously awarded him 100% P & T for PTSD 3 years after his death. There is plenty wrong with that picture.

I am assuming however that the SSDI award will help you....like if it is all for PTSD.

"I really dont remember what i stated as my disability for ssdi but i know i was inpatient for ptsd at the time" Makes sense it would be solely for PTSD.

But hard to be completely sure on that......

I think you will be OK because PTSD is Axis one and your C&P looks good to me. These conditions bleed into each other. To separate depression, anxiety disorder, sleep disorder and PTSD is just not possible unless their is a physical reason in the brain.

    • 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...
