Fighting Diligently to Provide You
With the Benefits You Deserve

Military Benefits Available for Veterans

There are many programs that may be available for Veterans. At the Grech Law Firm, our motto is "we serve those who served us!" To this end, we handle several different types of benefits claims for Veterans including service related disability benefits, pension benefits, DIC benefits, and others. Below is a list of some other types of benefits that may be available to Vets.

Disability Benefits

If you have a service related medical problem or issue, whether physical or mental, you may be eligible for service related disability benefits. These benefits are paid to Veterans on a sliding scale from 10% disabled to 100% disabled with the benefit amounts ranging from $127.00 per month to over $3000.00 per month. In order to file for service related VA benefits, you will need your separation papers (usually a DD 214), your service treatment records to show the condition is service related, and recent medical evidence of your disability. Contact the Grech Law Firm and we will be happy to provide you with a free consultation about these benefits and your potential eligibility.

Pension Benefits

The VA pension program is a needs based benefit that is eligible to low income Veterans who are unable to work. To qualify for VA pension benefits, the Veteran must have been discharged with at least 90 days of active duty service and at least one day during an eligible wartime period and have a yearly family income less than the amount set by Congress. Please see this link for more information: https://benefits.va.gov/pension/

In addition, the Vet must be 65 years or older, OR be totally and permanently disabled, OR be a patient in a nursing home who is receiving skilled nursing care, OR is receiving Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, OR is receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Again, please feel free to contact the Grech Law Firm for a free consultation to see if you may be eligible for VA pension benefits.

Health Care Benefits

The VA healthcare system must provide all eligible Veterans with needed hospital and outpatient care. This care is not limited to military or service related conditions or illnesses and may include HIV/AIDS treatment, drug dependency treatment, and other special needs programs.

Education and Vocational Rehabilitation Programs

The VA offers Vets several different education programs as well as occupational rehabilitation programs. These programs can often be available to Veterans and to their family members. The "Chapter 31" program helps Vets with service related disabilities train and find suitable employment. Please see this link for information about this program:
