  • 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

First Question Please help...


Can anyone please tell me if there is a place on ebenedits where it states if i have been approved for tdiu?  My claim is completed and there has been no change in the VA letter or my 80% hasn't changed.  Does this mean that i was denied? Thanks

M. (Doc)  Johnson

My last claim, I could not find on eBenifits any information before I got the letter in the mail.  And I used all of the tricks I read about.  Before they listed your disabilities on the site, you could start a (fake) new claim and when going through the process, you could look at your current disabilities and they may have a new listed disability.

The VA letters is pretty fast and the most accurate.

If you went with a lawyer, they might know something more?

My claim 3 rows back, I did find out a day early by looking at my disabilites, but I think it was in the letters by then already.

Maybe someone has found a new way??

Look on e benefits go to ''Disabilitys''  it should have a list of S.C. Disability s of what your S.C. For and where they Occurred & dates service connected.

I have 4 claimed S.C. Disability's and they are listed and where they they occurred while in military Active Duty.

I have two SMC awards but there not listed on the disability's   there listed in another area on ebenfits.

If you get a ED Claim S.C. it won't be listed as a rated claim but S.C. @ 0% BUT IT PAYS 103.57 on top of all your other rated S.C. Disability's.

Just hunt and peck until you find what your looking for.

Go to my letters on ebenefites and generate letters it will either say you are being paid at the 100% rate or not, there may also be an option for checking that you are permanently and totally disabled because of your disabilities (that means that you are PT)  you would also be able to print commissary letter,etc. if you are IU PT.  The easiest way to find out though is to generate your own letter where you get to pick and choose what it includes like percentage of disability, amount you get paid, etc. and THAT will let you know if you got your IU ;)    Best of LUCK!!

Are you the "Doc" Johnson that served at NavSecSta (or nearby Washington DC vicinity) around about between 1970 and 1974?  You played the piano for me and I think you were married to Barb.  Anyway, if that is you, I know you.  If not, sorry.

    • 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...
