  • 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

I Am Not Incompetent. How Do I Convince The Va?

Recommended Posts

asknod you say you have used firearms in anger many times and you and you were actually kicked out of the military, and yet you are interested in "old guns that go rat-a-tat-tat."

That's pretty xxxxxxx hypocritical. Maybe you should evaluate your own situation before you shit your opinion onto the internet.

to original question of fiduciary - if someone is helping you with your bills even just keeping you organized can be flag for them to set up a fiduciary, it happened to me and i got bergmann and moore vetlawyers.com to handle it.

on the anger issue and guns, i know i may get blasted by folks, but if you are anger is such that you cannot control it and since you got fired from 2 jobs for assault, it seems like it is. then no personally i don't think you should have guns and the va will probably feel the same way. like asknod said each veteran is different but given the severity of your symptoms - well if you could control your anger then it wouldn't be a problem, but that does not seem to be the case.

i'm loath to strip any person of their right to have a weapon, but when they have a history of violence and have trouble controlling that anger - then it's really for their safety and the safety of others around them and i have to put safety first, i do not want anyone to have easy access to a gun if they have feelings/thoughts of suicide or homicide - rights or not

Thanks for answering the original question. Any information helps.

I don't understand why you could possibly presume to assess my competency off two sentences. You have no clear understanding of my ability to control myself, but you feel some need to comment on my right to bear arms.

How about you provide general information on what I can expect from the VA and you trust that I can assess myself better than a stranger who only knows two very condensed sentences about me.

I don't need to be insulted when I am asking for information.

proudveteran - i'm not trying to insult you. what you can expect from the va is to look at your current situation financially whether you get help with it or not and your current symptoms and how well managed they are, they will then based on your history and what you tell them decide whether they recommend a fiduciary, if they decide you need a fiduciary. chances are they will also want you not to have guns. you can appeal the fiduciary decision but make sure you do it right away you don't want to much time to go by between getting the letter and disagreeing with it.

    • 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...
