  • 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

Ebenefits claim is complete, yet Rated Disabilities is showing "not service connected"

Question

I don't know if I am being impatient, but here is my situation.  My claim in eBenefits shows closed and complete as of 12 July 2018.  Under my "Disabilities" section it shows that my current service connected percentage didn't change and the list of disabilities does show all the  items I claimed from this current closed/complete claim states, "not service connected."  Is it too early to freak out and to let the system catch up and wait for the formal benefits letter stating what the real deal is or should I just start getting my appeal ducks lined up as all my claim was canned?  Anyone ran into this same situation and assumed the worst and was right based on this same scenario?

Have you obtained the results of the C & Ps they gave?

Did you attend all the C & P exams?

Having a result from a C & P exam can give a good heads up as to what to expect and whether you will need an IMO/IME.

Best to wait for the actual decision, to see if uour ebenefits info was correct and to see what you can do next-

And I suggest you definitely get your ducks in a row and arm them with Evidence.

I have copies of the C&P's and attended all the exam.  The one that throws me off is my hearing, in the exam notes it states by the audiologist, "

"Therefore, it is my opinion, that it is as least as likely as not that the hearing loss found upon examination and the tinnitus reported during today's examination, are related to the noise exposures as associated with his MOS and his combat service, and as demonstrated by the bilateral STS's across all frequencies."

I am already service connected for tinnitus, yet my eBenefts says, hearing loss, NOT SERVICE CONNECTED....

The orthopedic docs wrote in my exams at my already service connected knee has (severe arthritis or moderate/severe) plus a meniscus tear, I am 10% for mild arthritis only from 2006.  C&P complie  Ebenefits still shows no change and moderate is 20% and severe is 30%

    • 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...
