Which Veterans Are Eligible for VA Disability Benefits?
When most veterans approach us at VA Benefits Attorneys, the most common question we get is – am I eligible for VA disability benefits? We can help answer your questions right here at VA Benefits Attorneys with a quick breakdown of the criteria provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

- The veteran was diagnosed with a service-connected injury, illness or medical condition after completion of their military service – called a Post-Service Disability Claim.
