  • 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

Submitting NOD/New Material Evidence

Question

Good morning. I am submitting my NOD this week for denied contentions (denied April 14th) that fall under the CFR as presumptive conditions that were denied (cancer, kidney stones and arthritis).

The reason for denial was "there is no evidence that the condition occurred in service or during the presumptive period after service". I had received a letter in September ( I believe it was for a 5103 response) stating the documents we have received and in the listed documents was "DD 214 dated 15 January 2015". So I figured I was covered under the presumptives and that they got it from the ARPC.Well they did not. In fact when I separated from active duty, even though I completed the DD 214 worksheet and submitted it and it was never done.

The ARPC will have the new DD 214 completed tomorrow. I am submitting the DD 214 with my NOD as new evidence and for the contentions and I am attaching a letter explaining why I am appealing the decision referencing the DD 214 shows that these conditions are covered under the presumptive guidelines in the CFR.

 

I am also going to request a DRO review (de novo?). Am I on the right track with this NOD? Also I am not in favor of a reconsideration due to the fact that there is a high probability of losing my EED.

Thank you all for your help.

    • 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...
