First of all, if you are reading this blog, you or a close family member probably served in the United States Military. For that, I thank you. I became an accredited VA representative so that I can serve those who served!
The VA offers monthly, tax free compensation to Veterans who got sick or injured while serving in the military or for Veterans who had a pre existing condition that was made worse by their service. These conditions can be either mental or physical or a combination of both.
VA compensation can also be paid for post-service disabilities that are considered related or secondary to conditions that occured while you were in service. In addition, certain conditions or disabilities will automatically be presumed to be related to military service, even though they may not arise until after your service concluded.
Under VA service related disability benefits, the VA uses a scale from 10% diasbled up to 100% disabled depending on the condition and the severity of its effects on the Veteran. This is called your disability rating and they can increase by increments of 10%. Veterans can also have multiple conditions rated at different percentages to get them a higher award percentage overall. The higher your percentage of disability, the more money a Veteran will receive.
In addition to the Veterans disability benefits, the VA also offers DIC benefits which are tax free benefits payable to the surviving spouse, child, or parent of a Veteran who died while on active duty, inactive duty training, or for Veterans who died from service connected disabilities.
If you would like more information about the above benefits or want me to provide you with a free consultation, please contact me. Again, thank you for your service and let me help you get the benefits you deserve for serving our great nation!
