  • 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

Agree with Buck.

Last time I looked at my VA Choice Card, it said "temporary program".

Last time I looked at IU regulations, they did not say "temporary program".

I don't see how this budget cut will ever pass or how they figure it will free up millions?

What about if they just stop it before another vet gets awared the extra scheduler IU.   looks like that would save$$

Most Vets that are getting the extra scheduler IU rating never ask for it,but  needed it.

  So needless to NOD the decision at that time , if that vet could not work b/c of his S.C. Condition  then that Veteran was probably happy as a singing bird to get it. 

They  (VA) are the ones that Awarded it  to these veterans...why not just send them a letter and make there IU Moot and give the 100%  same thing as IU vs 100%  And not hurt these poor veterans  I can only imagine how they must feel stressing out over all this IU Budget cuts Proposal to reduce their badly needed benefits.

In my opinion this is only an excuse to do away with Extra Scheduler Vets.

It would not effect the older IU VETS THAT GETTING IT  if they just stopped the Extra Scheduler Program.  just moot the IU an give that veteran the 100%

    • 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...
