In my town we have lots and lots of folks besides the Disabled American Vets, VFW, Am. Legion that work on VA disability cases (near JB LewisMcChord and big mil retiree area). I had retained the go-to guy/gal in town when I had my run-ins with VA and SS. Don't get me started on Social Security Disability (normally lawyers can only make $6K on the SSec appeal case, but on the VA side they can take 25% of what is received by the Vet. 75% of your back pay is better than NO back pay). 25% of the recovery of back pay on VA disability makes for a might fine living for some of the really good folks. There are a couple of really smart folks at the DAV who help you for nothing, but when it comes to the big enchilada ...... you puts yer monies down and takes your turn.Maybenaut wrote:I don't really know anything about VA disability pensions; that's a specialty unto itself and I have zero experience with it.Sugar Magnolia wrote:Maybe Maybenaut ought to chime in on the disability payments after incarceration.

If you really want to throw a wrench into stuff, SSG Moeron is Army National Guard. So this puts an entirely different set of rules into play (reserve/guard "sillyness") that may change everything depending on everything else.
