  • 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

What do you think of this?


I currently have a case at BVA and was looking at my records and discovered that I asked for CUE from the Board.  It is on the third page of this document.  My memory is so bad that I forgot I did this when my case went to BVA.  Anybody have any idea if this would even hold up?

Just, after you click on his Document, look at the bottom of the page, it asks what you want to do, click on open.

VQ, you're 90% with a PTSD SC (%?) in the mix, have you had an "Inferred IU" from your last Award Denied?

If you were to win at the BVA, have you estimated your Retro? Who is reping you at the BVA? Might be time to get a free Legal consult from a local VA Attorney.

Could you post redacted copies of your PTSD C & P DBQ and Award/Denial Letters?

To all, thanks for being interested.  The BVA just awarded UI to the date I lost my job and service connected my neuropathy.  As far as the rest of the claim (for increase) it was remanded a second time for failure to comply with the board's previous instructions.  I did have a lawyer and I believe it helped.

Do you have a copy of their denial on the 1986 claim?

I liked the way you used the phrase "well grounded" as to the evidence the VA had then.

I would have used 38 CFR 4.6 myself but it seems you sure did some CAVC /COVA homework!

Yippee for you!

You did very well on the award from the BVA and a remand is always a good thing in my opinion.

 "as far as the rest of the claim (for increase) it was remanded a second time for failure to comply with the board's previous instructions.  I did have a lawyer and I believe it helped."

Can you give us the docket number? Then again it might not have been posted yet at the BVA web site.

Was the CUE issue mentioned at all by BVA in the remand?

Unfortunately CUE claims do not warrant a VCAA aka  5103 waiver-because VA will not extend Duty to Assist to us 'CUerinos'. They do not want to assist us to prove their errors.

"all records but one page were lost"- Did BVA make comment on that?

Are you seeking a higher rating regarding the basilar migraines?

It is 99% of the time, it is  the actual decision a vet files CUE on, that contains the CUE.

They they actually rate as NSC the hypochrondiasis? with a percentage. They definitely used and attached rating sheets back then .It would be great if we could read the rating sheet as well as their 1986 claim decision.

If you are able to scan the older decision and rating sheet, cover your C file # and name with an index card or something, prior to scanning it.

    • 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...

    • Thanks Berta for your help. I did receive my 100% today for my IU claim on 6/20/2018. It only took 64 days to complete and it is p&t. Thanks for your words of wisdom.
