Need advice on disability
I know that some of you have been through this and finally have been successful at getting your disability from the VA and Social Security. Got any advice? First off, a quick background. I quit working in March 2006 due to joint pain. I immediately requested a re-evaluation of my VA disability. At that time I was rated at 40%. I finally received a rating at 60%, but they denied my claim of being unable to work. This I appealed. I have the VFW's states Department Service Officer helping me with this claim. I also applied for Social Security Disability just to be recently denied. I can't work due to pain, nor could I even get a job. Does anybody have any suggestions? Do I need a lawyer? Any help will be appreciated.
