New Hampshire VA Disability Attorneys

New Hampshire – known as the Live Free or Die State – is home to more than 85,000 U.S. Military veterans that have served in many armed conflicts across the globe and in every branch of service. Many of those veterans – an estimated 28.7% – claim a service-related disability.

Veterans who struggle with a service-connected injury, illness, or medical condition may be eligible to receive disability benefits via the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) – but many do not know where to start or have had their disability claim denied – and they need help. VA Benefits Attorneys is a nationwide resource for veterans who need help getting the disability benefits that they have earned with years of service, blood, sweat, and tears.

Who Is Eligible for VA Disability Benefits in New Hampshire?

The first question that most veterans ask when they contact us at VA Benefits Attorneys is – am I eligible for disability benefits? We may be able to help answer that question with a quick breakdown of the criteria veterans must meet to be eligible for VA disability benefits.

To be eligible for disability compensation, New Hampshire veterans must meet TWO initial criteria. They must have a current 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 in the U.S. Military.

In addition to the basic initial criteria, veterans must have a service-connected injury, illness, or medical condition that falls into one of the three categories listed below:

  • In-Service Disability Claim – The veteran became sick or injured while in the military and can link their condition to their military service.
  • Pre-Service Disability Claim – The veteran had an injury or medical condition prior to military service that was worsened by their time in the military.
  • Post-Service Disability Claim – The veteran was diagnosed with an injury, illness, or medical condition after their military service that can be linked to their time in the military.

Are There Additional VA Benefits for Veterans?

Most veterans who have served in the U.S. Military have a basic understanding of VA disability benefits – but not all veterans understand the wealth of benefits available to veterans via the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs – and fewer take advantage of those benefits. Veterans who want to purchase a home can apply for a VA Home Loan with affordable rates – a benefit used by just 6% of veterans. Veterans who want to continue their education may be eligible for tuition assistance via the G.I. Bill. Veterans in need of healthcare can get the help they need at VA medical facilities and available veteran insurance options will help keep medical costs low.

Live Free or Die is the state motto for New Hampshire – an expression with very real meaning to veterans who have worn the uniform. With a history rooted in freedom, it stands to reason that New Hampshire would hold its veterans in high regard. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs provides an excellent framework of support for veterans – but those benefits are not the only veterans available to veterans who call New Hampshire home.
