    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

Mine was November 2016  I was denied initially December 2015. I just received an invitation but now i'm all confused. The form I received was already filled out with a bar code and must be used as a cover letter.

I received the bar coded letter, as well.

VSO did not need that to file on my behalf.

Did you request the Form or was your letter written as an invitation as well? My letter wasn't barcoded but the form was at the bottom and I figured that was a scan for my cfile.

 

I guess I don't have to send it in as a cover it just says failure to do so may delay review of material.

I'm just curious as to why all the confusion. Maybe my letter was requested months ago and  its taken this long to be sent. Maybe that's why veterans have not been opting in. Is everyone receiving letters? I'm sure those that didn't receive an invitation would appreciate the assistance.

No, I did not request. The form w/bar code is separate from the letter.

Tatoo this on your arm if you need to remember it:

If unsure, read that again.  

If you want to opt into ramp, send in the form.  Its on the VA website that you no longer need an invitation.  

OR, you can ignore the quote above and beleive each and every VA employee and every VSO, no matter if they are intoxicated, or have no idea what they are doing.  (That is normal for VA).  

I want to opt in to Ramp but they never sent me a form. The form is not available on the VA website. I called them twice and they told me i would eventually receive the form with my invitation and it would have a bar code on it. They told me they don't have the form available on their website and i looked and could not find it. If i can get a form i will try to opt in to Ramp but if everyone can just send in the form why don't they have it available? I'm not sure the VA wants this program to succeed.

Also if  Veteran opts to the RAMP Program and feels its only a waist of time or to slow  for what ever reason they are not satisfied with the RAMP Program they can opt out and go back in the traditional claims process.

I don't think that is correct, once in you cannot go back... at least that is how I understand the letter that I received....

    • 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...
