First, your lawyer from Rob Levine & Associates will help you fill out the initial application and submit it to a regional office. If the application comes back denied, the next step is for your attorney to turn to the Board of Veterans Appeals. From there, if the benefits are still being denied, they’ll turn to the US Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. If it needs to be taken a step further, they can go to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. We understand this process can get intimidating, which is why our attorneys are there to handle it for you. Our attorneys are trained to keep you up-to-date on the progression of your claim, every step of the way. If needed, they will head to the Supreme Court if they have to.

FAQs About Your

VA Disability Claim

Can I receive VA disability compensation and continue to work?
In the Social Security disability system, in order to receive benefits, the standard is, "you are not capable of any form of gainful employment.” Unlike Social Security Disability, you can work while receiving VA disability compensation. Your VA disability benefits is based on how your service-connected disabilities impact your ability to work.
Can I receive VA disability compensation and Social Security Disability benefits at the same time?
Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) does not have a barrier to net worth or income provisions. Regardless of the home, the vehicle you own, or investments you've made - or alimony or pension from previous employment, this would not prohibit you from receiving SSDI. Similarly, this would not prohibit you from qualifying and receiving VA disability benefits. Even if you were to qualify for a 100% TDIU rating, you would still qualify for SSDI benefits either under the SSDI guidelines or the VA Disability guidelines.
How long will the VA take to decide my disability case?
The average length of time to adjudicate any claim or appeal depends on many factors, including the type of appeal or claim, the Regional Office, the number of disabilities to decide, any necessary development, and the overall complexity of the case. Cases in the VA’s legacy appeal system can take years. In contrast, the VA has set the following timeliness goal for adjudicating AMA appeals:
  • Supplemental Claims: within 125 days
  • Higher Level Review: within 125 days
  • Board of Veterans’ Appeals – Direct Review Docket: within 365 days
  • Board of Veterans’ Appeals – Evidence and Hearing Docket: over 365 days
Do I have to hire a Veterans Disability lawyer?
No, the VA does not require you to hire a lawyer for your appeal. However, remember that the VA also unfairly denied your benefits. Statistics show that veterans with representation receive more benefits, faster.
