  • 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

where do i send the VA Form 21-4140


i moved about 10 months ago from the western new york area where i went to the bath and buffalo VAMC system. i am now in the Tennessee valley system with the Nashville VAMC as my overseeing hospital. where do i send my annual IU form to show i have not been working? i have not received a form from them for it and i have as of yet to receive a form for my clothing allowance so i printed them both off and filled them out. i assume the clothing allowance form goes to the physical therapy brace and prosthetic shop but i have no clue who to give the IU form to :)

Ok guys have a question.  We got call back from hot line.  My husband told them they should not put the 270 day limit for appeals, because it is always more than that.  He complained about getting treated in appropriately when you call the va and it is always the same answer.  You just have to wait wait wait. He told them they are just waiting for the older vets to die.  But,  he did ask if he was working,  hubby told him he retired because he was no longer able to work.  He told my husband to file for tdiu.  He does have ihd rated at 60 and his diabetes is 20,  and there are other things like the neuropathy etc.  and hearing. He has the appeal in now for increase in diabetes and for stage 3 diabetic nephropathy.  And our family doctor stated in his dbq that he is unable to work.    But he did not file for tdiu.  If he files now how will it work.   I could not hear what the gentlemen was saying, and hubby is hard of hearing,  but he said, if he filed for it he would start getting it now.   But will they look at what th dr. Stated on the dbq.  I was reading that they treated it like an increase of your other disabilities.    Going to go back and read this all again.

L,  ok your saying you were awarded on dec of 16.  But they back dated it?  May I ask why they back dated it?  I'm thinking about contacting the Vso in D.C. With some of these questions.  I had told my husband he should file for it,  but he just ignores me lol.  Now this guy tells him and he says he wished he had known this.  I'm going to punch him.

    • 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...
