  • 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

Second Remand

Question

My case has been remanded for a second time by the BVA and I was wondering if there is any timeframe for the Nashville office to start working on the remand?  One of the "orders" was for back pay back to 2007 and the money would help out a lot right now.

Remands are always supposed to get 'expeditious' treatment by the ROs but that is just an undefined part of VA lingo.

I assume you mean that the BVA granted you an earlier effective date...?

Are you now Rated as IU and did you receive the estimated $21K, less Attorney fee, that you discussed in your July post?

Not all BVA or CAVC Remands have a positive outcome. Remands, either BVA or CAVC, generally receive Priority and are handled by a Sr Rater or DRO. 

Our concept of Priority Processing and that of the RO Rating Dept's is usually very different. I'm not sure but I don't recall a "REMAND" Section listed in the RO MMR (Monday Morning Report). Unless your BVA Appeal included a "Hardship Advancement," I'd say your Remand would be positioned at the bottom of your RO's Remand Pile, awaiting its progression to the top of the pile. First come, First served.

 If possible, a posting of your redacted Remand would be very informative.

Gastone, my appeal can be seen on the BVA decisions page now.  It is Citation number 1724920, and docket number 10-13 906A.  I have not received any back pay to date, I am waiting on the regional office to take care of that. The decision was positive in my favor for service connection and back pay.  The remand, the second one on this case, tells the regional office they were not in compliance with the 2013 remand.  I was hoping that this time around it would not take three years for them to get it done.

    • 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...
