  • 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

To RAMP or not to RAMP, that is the question!

This certainly sounds like the DRO Review Appeal minus the DRO and the mandatory submission of New & Material Evidence.

It appears that just a Sr Rater as opposed to a DRO does the Review and if the Denial is continued, the Vets only option is to the BVA. It's clearly stated that once the Vet opts for the RAMP (fast track? time will tell), he can't get back into the Traditional RO DRO (Review or Hearing) process.

Then again, it was an RO Sr Rater that did my 07/2016 Denial Quality Review and reversed the SA Increase Denial to 100% 12/2016. That took less than 4 mos, hell of a lot shorter than a DRO Reviews 18 mos for a Decision.

  Gastone Roger That.

This will just have to run its course first to see if its any better.???

I will say to the Veterans that opt over to ''RAMP'' 

Gastone is correct about opt over to'' RAMP''

I read in one of Ms Tbirds blogs that the current Appeals process is called the

Legacy process and if a Veteran opts to change over to ''RAMP'' He/She can not go back to the Legacy (Traditional Appeals Process) As we know it.

I would say at least its a start,  However I agree with Gastone we won't know how RAMP will be or if its any faster or what?  time will only tell (in my opinion.)

The thing (I won't call it a problem) is that if vets get screwed in any way and find out or question whether or not the decision screwed them, and the only way the community will find out is trial by fire. Since a lot of us have been seriously burned over the years and are so jaded and angry... how can we trust anything the va does. Is it to the benefit of vets or the va? (rhetorical)..

"Legacy Program" sounds like something you get when you are dead.

    • 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...
