  • 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

The short answer is we dont know.  

A guess would be that you have been awarded an extra 30 percent for an increase OR you got a new disabilty rating which resulted in an additional 30 percent.  

You have  at least 2 choices to find out:

1.  You can wait for the BBE.  (recommended)

2.  You can try to call your VSO, who may or may not know, and who may or may not tell you the truth.

Option (1) wait for the Award/Denial Letter or go see your POA VSR. Your VSR should be able to access your C-File on his computer. Give him a call first, you may have to visit the VSO HQ office at your RO.

While your waiting for the Award Letter, file a VA FOIA requesting your complete C-File, you're going to need it for your probable Appeals.

Could you share what made you think you'd be Awarded IU? Are you too disabled to do even Sedentary Work that would provide in excess of the VA SGI $12,400?

Have you contacted the VA Vocational Rehabilitation Dept to verify that you are currently Unemployable due solely to your SC Conditions? The VR Denial of Services Letter can be a Deal Maker with IU Claims.

You must file for TDIU and specify which disability makes you unemployable.   I am also 90%, but I have TDIU.  It is a big difference in money.   Plus once you get TDIU you may be eligible for SMC  "S" which is another $300 a month.  Now when you figure we get a 2% increase for me this means another $70 a month with my two SMC's.   So all told my TDIU P&T plus SMC gets me over $3500 a month now and will be close to $3600 when we get the 2%.  I had to fight for it and I was denied the first time around, but with Voc. Rehab you should apply yesterday.

    • 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...
