Disabled Veterans Are Entitled To Benefits

Published on October 17th, 2017

Any service man or woman that put their life on the line for their country deserves to be compensated in the event they suffer a disability as a result of their military service. Discounting those who served in past conflicts, over 600 thousand veterans have a service-related disability. This number equates to over 25 percent of those in the military that saw action in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Disability compensation is a monetary benefit that is paid to a veteran that can prove he or she was disabled as a result of an injury or illness that occurred while serving. Benefits are paid in accordance with a sliding scale, the benefit amount depends on the severity of the disability and the number of dependents in the veteran’s family. Although the benefits are available, it is often difficult to get them. In many cases it is wise to hire VA disability lawyers to provide help and guidance.

Don’t be ashamed to claim what is rightfully yours:

If you are disabled and the disability is a direct result of something that happened while you were serving your country, do not hesitate to claim what is rightfully yours. Do not be embarrassed, be proud of what you did.

There are many valid reasons why you should claim:

  • Additional money: Money is always an issue. Even if the VA believes your condition only renders you ten percent disabled, that is worth almost $120 tax free every month.
  • As time goes by your condition may get worse. Today it may be nothing more than a “bum knee,” but twenty years from now it may morph into arthritis. Why hesitate, even if you are only seen as 10 percent disabled now, that can change as time goes by and your condition worsens.
  • When you are granted benefits you also get a disability designation. You may find that VA now takes over your medical care, provides you with vocational rehab and even guarantee a home loan.

If you were injured or became ill as a result of your service, go ahead and claim your rightful benefits. If you are denied, don’t give up. VA disability lawyers can be of tremendous assistance in helping you deal with the complications of the system.
