Yeah, I know I told myself that I’m good where I am with my VA disability already and not file for increase or anything. It’s a little more convincing, however, to try again, when enough people talk about success stories with increase and new claims. And I know I have at least one disability to make a new claim, plus increased effects of existing rated disabilities.
I was talking to on the phone yesterday about business and were BSing during the lulls in the actual shop talk. He mentioned retirement plans, as did I, compared timelines to projected retirement dates, and VA benefits. He brought up going thru a company, non-lawyer office, not vets org, that helped him get an increase in his rated disability. I went on to ask him about how the company worked in fees for the assistance, etc., and, coming from someone who actually went thru it, I was very interested. Especially since I do have new things to file a disability for. Plus the fee being based only on if I get an increase in disability, seems like a win-win.
So yesterday evening I went ahead and made contact on their web site. They responded with going thru questionnaires which I did this evening. We’ll see how this goes.

I got the ball started with this next VA claims round, for what it’s (going to be) worth. I’ve been emailing with my third party claims advocate after completing several online interview type questionnaires, and did more stuff with them today to begin a series of claims packages. I uploaded more of my medical records and also started a disability claim ‘intent to file’ on the VA.GOV site. So I’m starting the process…
I had to clear up some minor confusion with this claim thing. I had to call/talk to my battle buddy Jay today because their instructions on submitting the claim weren’t as procedurally clear as the actual steps, the question prompts, etc., that are presented on the VA.GOV site.
Annual leave today, so I could go to my 2 VA C&P exams, which I did. They were at the Aiea Medical center, 99-128 Aiea Hgts Rd #405.
Well alright then. Things seem to be progressing, or at least the evidence points to it.
Yes alright the pursuit of the VA claim was worth the effort after all, with the help of a third party.
