The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) pays benefits to you, as a veteran, if you have a service-connected disability. If you served in the military and suffered any physical or mental trauma, you may qualify for Veterans Compensation. But getting the VA to approve your claim can be complicated.
If you can prove that you meet these three criteria, the VA should pay you benefits based on the seriousness of your disability. If we can prove that your disability prevents you from working at all, you should receive substantially more than any other percentage of disability. Since we specialize in Social Security law, we have significant expertise in proving the inability to work at all from a condition or a combination of several conditions.
