  • 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

Anybody use Chris Attig's material?

Question

Just wondering if any of you have used Chris Attig's material.  I subscribed to his emails, and I see the material on his website.  I'm so very tempted to become a paying subscriber, to get access to his material.  Anybody have success, and how much success did you have, using his materials? Thanks,

Andyman

I bought his stuff, when I first started looking at VA disability again in September/October of last year.  It certainly is well put together and really focuses on the mechanics of doing things correctly.  I certainly could have found the stuff around the web overtime and have since then.  However, if you want to get primed quickly and have it conveniently all in one place, there is value there.

That being said processing VA claims takes months.  For me, I'd say it was worth the value.  However, I could easily see how someone would feel like they could just get that for free.

I'd summarize resources in this way:

1. Chris Attigs stuff -- for Newbees and the uninitiated.
2. Asknod's book -- for those with a bit of experience and understanding of the VA process.
3. Haditcom -- for everyone, but you have to do some reading and be committed to dig for information.  The more you read the better you'll get, it will grow with you all the time.

If you were only going to get one paid resource or were iffy, I'd start with item 2 personally.

I popped for a couple of Chris's e-manuals back in 11?12, after following his website since 10 or so. Great VA Claims/Appeal insight.

I particularly found his advice on using the "Sworn Affidavit as apposed to the VA Stmt In Support of Claim," very useful. The DRO at my 2014 Hearing seemed very impressed with is usage.

Vets with NOD's will find that VA Lawyer "Free Consults" (I had 3 of them, 2 x phone 1 face to face), don't come with discussions and Forms for a DIY Appeal. Intellectual Product = $$, right. With Chris Attig, you get a bit of a Free non-personal Legal Consult, then pay a fair price for the DIY What and How To's.

Excellent question.  While I can see how it may benefit, Im not completely convince hadit members can not get similar stuff here.  Maybe we could hear from Chris the stuff he has on the pay part that isnt here.  And, hadit members could correct him if the same info was found here.  I hope he knows that many of us are living on little or nothing and some of us are going to the library just to get online.  Some hadit posters indicated they are homeless.   Personally, I have been on hadit about 9 years.  I may not have lost my home if I would have known about hadit first.

Gastone:  What was useful about it?   By "Sworn" , do you mean you actually had your Affidavit notarized?

 The material suggest that a sworn statement is better than a simple letter. He advises that a sworn statement saying, " I swear under penalty of perjury" is very strong. He does not require having the statement notarized

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
