  • 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

The new 'streamlined' VA double talk didnt include their reasons and bases.

I guess thatis OK for a CRDP situation but I think you need to go over the CRDP CRSC info ere at hadit under a search.

DFAS does CRDP automatically.

Does any of the withholding of the VA comp for 2 months, then change to March 1, 2013 make any sense to you ?

Did you get a deposit from the VA on MArch 1st or did you get only the DFAS retiree payment?

What is your service connected rating?

Have you appealed that rating?

Are you employed or do you feel your SCs have rendered you unemployable?

Did VA expand on an additional age as to what this means?

Have you appealed that rating?

NO, JUST AWARDED

Are you employed or do you feel your SCs have rendered you unemployable?

NO, FULLTIME EMPLOYEE

Did VA expand on an additional age as to what this means?

I think you need an explanation regarding how the VA came up with their numbers etc. This is the way the VA used to do their decisions back in 60's and early 70's. Just a page or two with no reasoning or explanation of evidence or basis of how they got to the compensation level or date. What about appeal rights etc? I know you just got this and are happy to get it, but you probably have a high enough rating for TDIU if that is that applies.

I have more pages detailing the particular afflications and the amount, 50% sleep apnea and 30% PTSD, with a combined of 70%. I was trying to figure out exactly how much I was going to get each month.

Thanks

    • 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...
