Am I Eligible for VA Disability Benefits in Nevada?
An estimated 5.25 million military veterans receive monthly disability compensation and many veterans struggle day in and day out with injuries, illnesses and medical conditions that can be connected to their years of service. Many veterans ask us – am I eligible for VA disability benefits? Here is a brief look at the criteria that veterans must meet to be eligible for disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Veterans must meet TWO basic criteria to receive disability compensation – they must have a service-connected injury, illness or medical condition that affects the mind or body AND they must have served on active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty for training.
Veterans must also meet ONE of the guidelines in the list below.

- Pre-Service Disability Claim – The veteran had an injury, illness or medical condition prior to their military service that was made worse by military duty.

Many veterans need help with more than just service-connected injuries, illnesses or medical conditions when they return to civilian life and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs provides veterans with an impressive support system. Available VA Home Loans can help veterans purchase their dream home and just 6% of veterans apply for loans. Veterans who hope to continue their education can apply for tuition assistance via the G.I. Bill – a benefit used by only 40% of veterans. Additional benefits include medical care, affordable insurance, employment assistance and more.

Can I Appeal a Denied VA Disability Claim?
Did you know that an estimated 30% of VA disability claims are denied? There are a variety of reasons that disability claims can be denied by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs – an incomplete application, a missed deadline, lack of medical documents and lack of a service-connected injury.

When a disability claim is denied, you have three methods of appeal – file a Supplemental Claim, request a Higher-Level Review or submit a Board Appeal – and we can help at VA Benefits Attorneys.
