  • 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

Retroactive Back Pay.

Question

My claim is scheduled to close tomorrow for my backpay.

Does anyone know if it does close how long till the backpay hits the bank?

Also does information only get updated on our claims whenever the site is down?

Hard to know, my VARO at Denver has taken 7 months and counting.  They've had so many pathetic excuses as the why they won't do their job, I've considered suing just to get them to follow the decision.

I have a suit going at the U S District Court for the District of Wyoming that includes Denver VARO that you could petition to Join if you wish.  It would help get it to Class Action and considered.  I'm attaching the files in reverse date order.  It is almost impossible to find an attorney.  I haven't.  But you might if you use the case that I'm attaching to show you can get by the administrative deceptions and delay.

If you can find an attorney they can represent me also.  I have a Wyoming attorney who will stand in if they are not admitted to the Wyoming Bar.  If you can't find an attorney post here.  I'll post my email and help you ghost write a Pro Se claim.  You have to start with filing an SF-95.  I can walk you through the process.

Berta found the Laskowski case (which I misspelled in my last brief) but is useful.

I hope the 1800 number is wrong. Told me that they can take up to a year before the claim is closed.

I have a back pay of around 61k coming to me.

I am not retired military but I am 100% service connected.

 

 

I have a question also bout what I should do when I get my back pay.

Do you think it would be more beneficial to me if I opened a secured credit card of 10k?
I have a very poor credit score at the moment for the time I left service till the day I got va was about 2 years.

Be sure to follow up if it takes more than 2 months.  Someone had entered another person's BVA Decision in my file instead of mine.  Our first names were the same.  Mine granted TDIU and his BVA decision was a denial.

I had to appeal to the 10th.  Have two positive orders to the VA and U S ATTY from the 10th.  Working hard on my Pro Se Brief.  Will keep you all posted.

    • 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...
