How Do I Apply For VA Disability Benefits?

Because the majority of VA Disability Benefits claims are denied (although your chances of being awarded Veterans Disability Benefits are greatly improved when working with an advocate or attorney) it is important to learn how the process works.

First confirm if you’re eligible. If you served in the active military service and were separated under any condition other than dishonorable, you may qualify for VA health care benefits. Many military veterans aren’t aware they are eligible for VA health care benefits. The common misconception is that veterans can only use VA medical care facilities if they have a service-connected disability rating.

You do not have to pay income tax on certain military and government disability pensions. You need not pay income tax on disability benefits you receive from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Don’t include such payments in your gross income on your tax return. VA benefits can count when a court calculates a veteran’s income for child support purposes. However, VA disability comes with a graduated benefit schedule, which increases the veteran’s payment amount the more dependents he has.

The Veterans Disability Claims process is complicated and tedious. There is very little information available to veterans to ensure that you are a completing the process accurately according to your unique disability.

Rather than trying to make sense of hundreds of pages of legal statutes and regulations, some veterans will go through a Veteran Service Organization for help. These organizations aim to help veterans get their benefits, but they are often overwhelmed with a high number of and can’t dedicate the time necessary to get you the disability rating that you deserve.
