Question

      8 hours ago, rikkor said:

can the VA take away IU without notification? I received a letter from DAV that the VA  would be discontinuing my IU on 07/2017 although my conditions have not changed since being awarded IU in 2010 I am now going to be 59 and I have not worked in 35 years.  I tried calling DAV and veterans affairs to no avail...Also they did not give reason for the discontinuation I did not have anything pending nor on appeal and my last award letter stated I was permanent and totally disabled? Could this letter from the DAV be in Error as I have never had the DAV or any other organization working on my case before?

The VA has to give 60 days notice of a "proposed reduction".   Can you post the letter, hiding your name and address?  

You probably want to request a hearing and explain why your benefits should not be reduced.  You need to act on this RIGHT away, dont ignore it or you will be reduced.

It could be a mistake.  I would request a hearing should it not be a mistake.  Is this a proposal to reduce?

    • 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...
