Back in April, 2010, I was awarded SSDI based on my VA Disability. No Lawyers, no hearings; I was awarded it on the first go around. I didn't even know that I was entitled to it! I am presently 80% VA Disabled. I put an appeal in to the VA 6 years ago to be put at 100%. I initially had the American Legion helping me. What a joke. 2 people for the whole State and they only take calls twice a week. I finally found an lawyer who specializes in veteran's appeals. Initially, the agreement was 30%. Last April I had the 4th spine surgery at L5/S1. By June, the artificial disc had slipped out of place, and I had to have it redone! Based on what I went through last summer, he lowered his fee to 20% because their goal is to help the vets. Nice guy. He thinks my case is solid: probably no hearing. I had an interview with an Employment Specialist, and he told me that if anyone was deserving of this, it was me. So, I sit and wait. I can only pray that Trump guts the VA. He can do what Reagan did when the air traffic controllers went on strike: fire them all and gut the union which protects all the lazy bastards in administration at the VA.
