  • 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

NOD with only 8 pages attached- has anyone succeeded???


So once I understood what my lawyer friend said to look for on the evidence used in my case...I cut my documents from 63 pages to 8 attached. I don't disagree with the compensation I disagree with the recouping of SSB based on dates that don't match...my NOD! In the 8 pages attached I only focused on the dates that I have a service-connected disability and prove why the VA should not be recouping the SSB...I am getting the hang of less is more!

Well, yes.  Can you cut the 8 pages down to 2 pages?  Remember, your "case" needs to be simple enough for a sixth grader to understand.

The Award Letter Date is?

You indicate you don't disagree with the Decision itself, just a problem with  SSB Dates that don't match your Evidence, right?

Give some consideration to "Requesting an Official Review for CUE" regarding the Date's issue.

If you don't get the Dates issue resolved in less than 4 mos, file the NOD. What type of NOD were you considering, DRO or BVA? DRO Reviews 12+ mos for a Decision, DRO Hearings 3+ yrs for a Hearing Date, BVA 4+ yrs for the Hearing then another year for the Decision.           Semper Fi

I think I replied to you in another different thread. Yesterday

I dont know where that thread is.....

we all have time constraints here-all of us are unpaid volunteers and it helps us save time when vets keep the same thread going...for the same subject....

And without being able to read the actual words of VA, per the other post you made, I cant help anymore....you got good advice here today and in the other thread.

I spent probably 40 hours recently on an issue here....the poster would not attach anything at all regarding some denials from the VA.I finally got that situation resolved by contacting the head of the DAV in another state and also contacting the head of the Big 6 VBA coordinator to help straighten it all out.The poster here was not the legal claimant. The DAV might have dropped the ball. I reported one DAV NSO who Never answered his phone or answering machine when I called, because It involved numerous emails and phone calls to even find those entities, and I asked DAV how the heck a vet could even make an appointment with him if he never answers phone and never makes call backs. The situation was very serious but I decided not to get involved with DIC /accrued claims anymore here. Unless we can see some facts, as attachments.

A very difficult claim but nothing is impossible. 2 small children are the claimants and need someone in their behalf to file ( their mother). And there was a deadline last month.

    • 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...
