Disability Benefits Available to U.S. Veterans
Veterans who served in the U.S. armed forces are eligible for disability benefits based on several strict requirements. U.S. Veterans who have tried on their own to obtain disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) know only too well how difficult the process can be. There are very few required deadlines within which the VA must act on your claim — with the result that thousands of Veterans are left hanging for years while their applications for VA benefits wait for a decision.
Help from experienced VA benefits attorneys can make the VA benefits application process go much more smoothly, and can give you a must better chance of success. Let us take the worry from your shoulders and manage your claim for VA benefits — you will be treated with the compassion and respect you deserve, and your VA benefits claim will receive the attention it deserves.

Basic Requirements to Qualify for VA Disability Benefits
To qualify for VA disability benefits, the Veteran must:
- Have a current medically diagnosed disability;
- Have had a disease, injury or event while serving in the military; and
- The current disability must be related to the disease, injury or event from the Veteran’s service time.
This last requirement is called the “service connection” and it is often the most difficult aspect of qualifying for VA disability benefits. Proving the service connection is especially difficult when there are other possible explanations for the Veteran’s medical condition, when the Veteran’s military service occurred long ago, and when the Veteran’s medical condition is different from the injury or event that occurred during service.
