    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

Withdraw a claim on ebenefits?


I have a claim pending with a C&P scheduled for Tuesday morning I made a mistake and filed an additional claim on Friday and then got this message on my new claim (#2) about it being consolidated with the other claim:

Important Message About Consolidated Claims

Additionally, to add to my screwups, I accidently uploaded the wrong civilian medical form to this new claim. I see I can add the correct form after the fact but I prefer to just delete the claim and let my original one be processed on it's own. I have been all over ebenefits trying to see how to delete a claim but I dont see how to....any tips? Thanks

I would upload a written statement signed and dated with clarification on your claim and upload it on ebenefits as evidence. Which I was told to do when it’s happened to me and the issue was corrected after uploading it I called the 1800 to make sure it was recieved...

I do not recommend withdrawing the claim.  If you applied twice, dont worry about it and let VARO decide the claim and the effective date.  It wont be the first time that has ever happened.  In short, dont worry about it.   Show up for the C and P exam.  

You can withdraw a claim, but you can not delete it.  

If you need to submit additional evidence, on a different form, simply do that.  If the (previously) uploaded form is inapplicable, then the VARO will simply ignore it.  

Dont get caught up in the symantics, its not your job to cancel claim number one and start another...let the rating specialists do their job.  They have already told you they consolidated the claims into one.  

CAUTION:  Do not submit "conflicting" evidence or testimony.  Your testimony should be consistent...you should not say that your stressor occurred in Vietnam in 1978, but then later say your stressor was in 1983.

    • 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...
