Your Eligibility for VA Benefits

ROB LEVINE, VETERANS DISABILITY LAWYER

NAVIGATING THE VA DISABILITY SYSTEM CAN BE COMPLICATED. LET OUR EXPERIENCED TEAM SECURE THE BENEFITS YOU DESERVE.

Veterans have sacrificed so much in service to our country, so it is important to us at Rob Levine & Associates that we serve our veterans when they return. Unfortunately, the VA disability compensation process is complex and often intimidating. It’s hard to know where to start. That’s where the Rob Levine team comes in! We’ll help you determine your eligibility for all possible VA benefits, file your initial claims, and fight for you in any appeal.

ARE YOU READY TO GET VA BENEFITS YOU DESERVE? HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR ELIGIBILITY:

In order to qualify for VA disability compensation, you must be a veteran. That means you served in the U.S. military, whether on active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty for training. You also need an eligible discharge, or a discharge that is not dishonorable.

Next, you’ll need to prove that you have a current disability related to your service. To do this, you’ll generally need to provide evidence of the following:

  1. A current diagnosed disability;
  2. An in-service event, injury, disease, or stressor; and
  3. A medical connection (“nexus”) between the current disability and service.

 

If you’re an eligible veteran and you can prove all three things, the VA will recognize your entitlement to monetary benefits and will award Service Connection for a disability.

YOU’VE BEEN AWARDED SERVICE CONNECTION. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

When the VA grants service connection, it recognizes that your disability is related to your military service. Next, the VA will award a disability rating, which is based on the severity of the service-connected disability. Ratings are assigned in 10% increments from 0% to 100%. A veteran’s combination of service-connected ratings (called a “combined rating”) will determine the amount of monetary benefits he or she will receive each month.

The last aspect of an award of service connection is the effective date. The effective date is the start date of the veteran’s benefits. It is usually the date of the filed claim for benefits.
