    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

Hello all!

I am in prep for decision now, but have heard from the MST coordinator from St. Petersburg VARO where my claim is, and she said unofficial.......probably 100% P&T! I still am grateful for anything at this point.  she said if they do 70%, all I do is turn around and NOD if for 100%, but she said everything is lined up in my favor for 100% P&T.........I feel blessed whatever the outcome, but I will let you all know when it comes in.  She said to wait about 30 days and then call her personally, but she thinks it will come through in a week or so! fingers crossed!

Based off your MST/PTSD  C&P you should get 100% for that... & along with your other disability's  and if you can't work b/c of this S.C. Disability's they may refer you to IU with P&T  which is a nice rating  but don't let them do that to ya   You Deserve the scheduler 100% kiddo!

However prepare yourself for anything!

I don't trust these people from R.O.They will say what we want to hear (but they work for the VA) and were all happy and then VA Low Balls us.

Just be strong and be  prepared & if your case its all favorable and its what you want then You can dance a jig.

Let us know!  be sure and check out the 100% P&T benefits that you will get   The Property Tax Exemption is especially NICE

Chapter 35 for you your hubby and your kids.

Take you and your Family on a Nice Vacation and enjoy your life.

I wish you the Best

In case you don't know this/??  

My advise to you is  stay in treatment for your PTSD ( seeing VA therapist) for at least two years after your award,b/c the VA keeps a ''check-up'' on us that has been recently Awarded PTSD  Claim. 

If they do a medical audit so-to -speak and see that your not in treatment  this will put them on Alert and try to propose a reduction in your ratings  that you shown improvement  even with the P&T so watch that.

After 2 years they pretty much leave us alone  5 Years your safer  and 10 years even more safer 20 years your safe  they can't reduce you or send you to a C&P  Only under special circumstances can they reduse  you or they can prove Freud as been committed.

Ain't I full of good news   eh!

    • 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...
