    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

FDC Decisions seem to be taking 4 to 6 mos, Reg A$$ Claims, depending on number of issues and complexity, can take over a year.

What type of claim did you file? How about posting a redacted copy of your C & P DBQ (s?), help us get a grip on your situation.

Given that only about 15% of first time claimants are awarded benefits, you need to understand there is a high degree of probability that you will have to appeal.  

Currently, VARO claims take about a year (sometimes a little less), and appeals to the BVA are about 5 years.  

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  Of course, you can talk to your VSO who may tell you 125 days.   He probably also would have told you Shinseki will elimate Veteran homelessness by 2012, and may sell you ocean front property in Kansas, too.  

With all that said, you could be one of the lucky ones who get benefits in weeks.  Its very rare, tho.

When you go on your MHV, go to BLUE Button. Do you know approximately when your C & P Exam was held, it was at your VMC, right?

1.  If so, click on the "Customized" for your download.

2. Then put in the approximate Dates of your Exam, allowing about 2 weeks after the Exam Date.

3. check the box for Treatment Notes (Clinician Treatment Notes).

4. Don't check any other Boxes, additional info will just get in your way.

5. Hit the Submit Button. If your C & P Exam was held at your VMC since about 01/2013, your C & P DBQ should be in your Treatment Notes.

In the event that you still don't see it, visit your VMC Medical Record Office, they'll hook you up. Ask the window clerk for just the copy of the  C & P DBQ. While your there, ask for your complete VMC Med Record on CD, always helpful for future reference.

SEEMS LIKE NOW A DAYS..... YOUR TIME STARTS WHEN YOU SUBMIT... THAT BEING SAID,,, 2 MONTHS TILL YOU GET A CP EXAM... AFTER CP EXAM ITS 3 WEEKS TILL THEY VA GET RESULTS AND WRITE UP A STUPID LETTER... GRANTING SMALL OR DENIAL. SO AFTER CP ID SAY ITS ABOUT 6 WEEKS. IVE HAD MINE WITHIN 2 WEEKS AFTER CP EXAM.

    • 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...
