Veteran’s Disability Benefit Questions
If you are a veteran of the United States military and have sustained injuries, a Veteran’s Disability attorney can meet with you to discuss your benefits rights. Veterans are eligible for benefits from the Veterans Administration (VA) and Social Security Administration (SSA), however each treats the process and procedure differently. For more information about the process, including how to handle a recent denial, contact a Veteran’s Disability attorney right away.
What Are the Types of Compensation Offered by the VA?
The VA offers a number of different options for veterans and their families to apply for benefits, all of which, a disability lawyer can help with.
Disability compensation is a tax-free monthly payment for veterans with a disease or injury sustained or aggravated in the line of duty.
Dependency and indemnity compensation is available for a surviving spouse, parent or child of a service member killed in the line of duty. Monthly compensation is available to veterans and their families suffering from specific disabilities requiring full-time assistance or aid.
If you or your family fit into any of the above categories, speak with a Veteran’s Disability lawyer right away.
Can a Veteran’s Disability Attorney Help Me Qualify?
While your disability lawyer cannot guarantee your results, he or she can help you prepare the most thorough application possible to hopefully gain approval from both agencies. With the VA, you must show thorough medical evidence that you have an injury or disease that was incurred or made worse while on active duty or in training. This could also include an injury, heart attack or stroke that occurred while inactive and attending training.
In order to qualify for benefits under the SSA’s rules, you must be suffering from a medically determinable condition likely to last longer than 12 months or ultimately result in your death.
