  • 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

Tdiu Decision In 30 To 60 Days After C&p, Good Or Bad?


After I completed my C&P exam, the NP advised me I would have a decision in 30 to 60 days on TDIU claim. From joining this very informative web, I have found out that an increase may be awarded and the TDIU denied. If so, I will file an NOD. My question: Is that good or bad to receive a statement of that kind from a NP. Was it lip service, or just a way to end an exam on a positive note? I do not know. This is the first C&P exam I ever had that when I walked out of that room I had no idea if it was good or bad. The NP was professional but very secretive. The NP was precise and positive in one area and totally negative in another. I was in a complete fog. On my other C&P exams I knew when I walked out that I had it or not. I am pretty good at figuring people out, but this one has me. Anybody out there had any experience with this? Or, am I in the same place as everyone else.

If this C & P was done at a VAMC did you make a formal request for copy of it with the Records Access officer ,before you left?

"The NP was precise and positive in one area and totally negative in another."

What was the area the NP seemed negative in?

When you got the 70% SC, what did VA say as to why they didn't consider you for TDIU at that time?

I am surprised that a NP, who doesn't work in a VARO, and isnt going to rate the claim, could make a guess on the timeframe of your decision.

I got my exam results with totaled 84 pages. Comments on sedentary were a bit inconclusive in the way it was stated. But the final statement advised that due to my worsening upper PN and carpal tunnel sedentary (even selective) was not possible. The PN I think may have just been ending the whole day (which was actually about 5 hrs) with a positve view. And when I got my 70 % there was no statement in my rating that stated why or why not I was not considered TDIU. The who award was only about 2 pages, and a statement they had revised thier procedures in preparing award letters, but the review was done the same way.

A NP is just guessing about when you will or will not get TDIU. They don't make the rating 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...
