  • 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

Quick Turn Around in E-Benefits

Question

Have a question. I submitted a claim in E-Benefits for secondary for both my left hip and left foot (due to left discrepancy), which is SC. The plantar fasciitis in my foot was diagnosed by the VA and my hip was diagnosed by a civilian doctor. I uploaded all my VA medical and personal doctors medical evaluation and documents along with a copy of my service medical records. My question is why this was done so fast as my initial claim was put into E-Benefits on  08/02/2017 and now I see its already in the "Preparation for Notification" phase. Also under disabilities claimed it states "mqas review - recoupment adjustment (New)".  I did get an SSB payment when I left the service that I have been paying back for years now. My question is this seems too fast for the VA.....and not a good sign.

Was this an FDC claim?

Update: My original claim (FDC) was a formal claim for secondary conditions of “Arthritis Due to Strain” in both my left foot and left hip caused by my service-connected condition “left leg length discrepancy”, which is rated at 0 percent. My left leg length discrepancy and pelvic tilt has played a role in either causing or aggravating my diagnosed trochanteric bursitis of the left hip. I have been scheduled for a C&P exam for the 6th of Sept at the VA in Martinsburg.

When I looked in E-Benefits I saw a new claim opened. Actually the VA opened a new claim to review my SSB recoupment and make some kind of adjustment. The closed the claim and have sent me a notification package (which I have not received as of yet).

So as it stands now I will undergo the C&P exam this week.

So I received a notification package today regarding the review on my SSB Recoupment. My recoupment was supposed to end November 2019 at which time I was to start reviving benefits December 2019 (30 percent). Apparently the VA miscalculated my SSB recoupment and now have advised me, after their review, recoupment will be finished November 2017. I will start receiving benefits in December. That was great news. Now for the C&P in the am.......

    • 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...
