  • 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

Question

How can the rating officers make completely false statements, and those overseeing those decisions answer to no one, totally unaccountable to anyone. They are "untouchable", and I no longer believe any of the regulations, UCMJ, or any other regulations. It is the biggest farce ever pulled on veterans, and one form after the other can continue for a lifetime, and sometimes does. I hate to have this attitude, but after what I have seen over the last three years, you realize that things are exactly as they appear to be. When you feel deceived, you are. When a file is missing, it was intentionally removed. When a record can't be found, it was destroyed. You are not imagining things, and you are not delusional, but you are being played for the suckers. Your research, documented illness, injury or disease, your evidence of occurring in service is useless if the VA doesn't want to man up. It will just lie, like the WACO, TX VARO, and finding an honest judge may be impossible. I have been told by the TX varo that the Army's own medical documents don't exist. I have them because they gave them to me after 46 years, but they don't exist if the VA doesn't want them to. I have learned a lot, had my eyes opened to some real truths about our governments employees and how low they willingly go, and what they will do. Fake news, fake UCMJ, fake regulations, fake laws basically describes the VA because it is not accountable. Those you believe in at that administration office will be the first to gut you, to deceive you, and make sure you are deprived of any benefit, truth, or justice. This is more of a statement than a question, and I have actually answered myself. Do yourself a favor and get a lawyer, not a VSO. They are sales people. Do sales people work for you or the product manufacturers? Go buy a new car and see how hard that salesman fights for you a lower price from his boss. Think about it.   I don't need a response, I got it. Thanks.

Because they CAN.  WE havent put enough pressure on elected officials to do anything about the VA "Kangaroo Court", aka the VAOIG.  And, that is the only accountability for VA employees.  They are not held accountable for bad service to Veterans, they can lie to us, and nothing is done.  The VA votes with their dollars, and they are consistently given more money because the VA always has an answer to any criticism:  WE need more money.  

Congress gives it to them, the VA squanders it, as usual, and when Vets complain, the VA says again:  We need more money.  

One example is the Veterans choice program.  Vets complained because of the long wait time, where many Vets died.  Congress responded with another 8 billion or so of money for Veterans choice.  

After VA got their money, the VASEC announced that most of that money would be used to fund a VA hosptial that was more than a billion in cost over runs, instead of Veterans choice.  It was a perfect example of how VA makes sure any money goes to favorite contractors, VA exec bonuses, VA exec parties, but not to Veterans, and the VAOIG nods off and looks the other way.  

Did you notice in the VAOIG reports they "make recommendations"?  Well our police force does not "make recommendations" they arrest bad guys.  VAOIG does not arrest bad guys because they are bad guys.

The RO is exactly as WellsFargo. All that matters is how many transactions you did. That's it- That's ALL you talk about at work. That's all your supervisor cares about.

If you make the supervisor look good, the supervisor can make your little transgression go away.

What can you do about it? Complain. As Bronco said:

When I complained to XXX, this is how they blew my concerns off.

Because of the response, I'm concerned they're doing this to other Veterans.

What are you going to do to rectify this?'

Write the president, write Secretary Shulkin, write the BVA (they have been under investigation too),  write your State Veterans Commission, and revoke any POA from all VSOs. Make the VSO sign everything in front of you, and FAX everything. Accept no "we'll put it in the mail", because it tends to get lost very conveniently. Time is on their side, and they use it against you. 

I don't think we have discovered the experiments that took place in the Mekong Delta either. Those gamma globulin injections caused a lot of illness and diseases, but that's covered up too. Vietnam Vets got screwed period, and the VA has the power to make it right, but no desire.

Well this is what Appeals are for, the Veteran has the burden to prove his case and no matter what the raters says or decides  that can always be beat down...and you do that with good solid medical evidence using a private specialist leaving no stones un turned. 

 It may not be easy but by using the correct CFR'S  with correct rating criteria  & Medical Evidence in your favor will prevail over a rater decision ,  just lay it all out and prove your correct...usually with a DRO Hearing or a BVA Judge by this time.  

 

WE need to educate the private Dr's to the Language/GUIDELINES and LAW of the VA, I've did this twice and both times was approved.

This is actually what  VA Certified Reps and Experienced Attorneys do. but some times we can't afford an attorney or give the 20% of any retro SO WE HAVE TO WORK OUR OWN CLAIMS THE BEST WE CAN.

I advise veterans that are having problems with their claims in Appeals  to read other BVA Decisions that would pertain/or close to to their own claim, you can learn a lot with the CFR's and case Law  and it helps , you will be amazed.

Yes, they make recommendations and that's about it. I don't know how many findings the VA received from 1972 to 2015, but in that 43 year period they spent only what it took to falsely withhold the absolute 100% documented evidence. Nothing on medical care even though I still carry a P-3 profile, 46 years after it was issued. Never saw a PEBLO, or real medical board. 

Write and call the media.

    • 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...
