  • 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

What next?


I have been awarded disability for PC 40%, IHD 10%, and ED o% SMC-k. I have not had any exams at all. What can I expect from the VA as far as follow up reviews or exams?

Thanks in advance

You might not never have to have a dairy date exam? (for VA to see if your disability's have shown improvement) but we never know.

when you filed your claims you must had enough concrete evidence they didn't need to send you for a EXAM and you won your claims that way.

We never know when and If were going to be called up for a C&P Exam usually the 1st 5 years if there going to call you up or send you a letter for a Examination  its within this time.

just set back keep using the VAMC or Private if you have good insurance for treatment and you should be ok.

Is the PC Prostate Cancer?

I caught a past post you made in April:

"Good Morning all you VETs

Who or what updates my status in EBenefits. I filed a claim in Dec 2016. on April 6 it changed from GOE to complete, Decision letter sent. Have not received a letter and claim is now under Historical claims. Peggy says someone found a duplicate claim, from where I will never know. They closed the claim and opened another claim with a file number. I cannot see or track a claim in Work in Progress. So who or what updates Claim status in Ebennies?"

If you are a Vietnam veteran, is it  at all possible you or a vet rep filed a claim for the PC and/0r  the  IHD in the past?

Reason I ask is that I have VAOLA Paranoia and wonder if the  duplicate offered a better EED under Nehmer -2010 for the IHD.

They must have based the award on private treatment records.

Did they enclose the rating schedules for the IHD and Prostate Cancer?

If not they are here under the VA Schedule of ratings topic, about half way down when you scroll the link.

The "0" for the K award might be wrong too.

Weather is affecting my internet-------if ity clears up I will try to find the ratings at the BVA- there are PLENTY of prostate cancer appeals.


Do you feel you would fit into a higher criteria based on your medical evidence for either disability?

The K award is no longer ratable at 10%  they are giving the K at  0% S.C. And its paid 103.** monthly added in  to the veteran compensation.

    • 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...
