  • 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

As long as it doesn't go from an FDC to a Reg A$$ Claim, be patient, one way or the other, a Decision will eventually be made.

I don't see an SC % listed on your profile?

Just be sure that whatever bank account is set up as your VA Direct Deposit account, the notifications are set to Txt & Email you real-time regarding all financial transactions.

I've always got my Retro direct Deposit 2 - 4 weeks before anything showed up on E-Ben. As for the actual Award Letter, anywhere from 2 to 4 mos after the Retro hit.

Have to admit though, this past 01/03/16, E-Ben had a mid 12/2015 Award Listed, Retro Hit a week later. Maybe E-Ben has finally got their act together. A 04/16 EED CUE Review Retro hit 07/16, E-Ben still showed it as an open claim when I received the Award letter end of 08/16. E-Ben was a little slow on that one.

Thanks Gastone, 

my situation is this. I'm currently 70%. 40 for hearing, 30 for shoulder, 10 for  tinnitus and 10 for bhronchitis. 

I submitted a FDC in February for mental condition to include PTSD, (which was submitted with a ton of evidence including a completed  DBQ) a bladder condition (CUE from years back) and secondary shoulder condition. 3 conditions total in this most recent claim.

I have been scheduled for CP for the bladder and shoulder for Jan 4th of 2017.  Nothing scheduled for the mental health claim. It's been at least 3 weeks since my ebenefits stated "prep for notification" and nothing  hit my account and nothing in the mail. Then a few days ago it went back to pending decision. 

So now that you have the details, any thoughts?

The PTSD DBQ, was that the result of an actual VA Forensic C & P Psychiatrist or Psychologist PhD?

A PTSD DBQ completed by any other Private or VA MH Clinician, takes a backseat to the Mandatory VA Forensic PTSD C & P Exam using the DSM V criteria. The Secondary Shoulder & Bladder issues could be resolved without the need for a C & P, providing the necessary Compelling Evidence (Med Recs & DX's) are in the hands of the Rater.

    • 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...
