Which Alabama Veterans Are Eligible for VA Disability Benefits?
Did you know that 4.9 million veterans receive disability benefits? The first question many veterans ask here at VA Benefits Attorneys is – am I eligible for disability? We can help answer that question with a quick summary of the requirements that need to be met to be eligible for VA disability compensation.
Veterans who are eligible for disability via the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs must first meet TWO basic criteria. Eligible veterans must have a service-related injury, illness or condition that impacts the mind or body AND must have served on active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty for training.
Veterans who are eligible must fit ONE of the additional criteria in the list below.
- The eligible veteran became sick or injured while in the military and can link their current condition to that injury or illness – called an In-Service Disability Claim.
- The eligible veteran was sick or injured before joining the military and the condition was made worse by military service – called a Pre-Service Disability Claim.
- The eligible veteran has a service-related disability that did not appear until after their military service – called a Post-Service Disability Claim.
