North Dakota VA Disability Attorneys

American History is North Dakota history in many ways – with national landmarks across the state like Theodore Roosevelt National Park, the Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site, Fort Buford, the Knife River Indian Villages National Historic Site, the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center, and more. With that history and tradition ingrained in the fabric of the state, many North Dakota men and women have chosen to serve in the U.S. Military.

Today – more than 39,000 U.S. Military veterans call North Dakota home and many have served overseas in a variety of wars, conflicts, and police actions. With 780,000 people in the state, veterans represent an estimated 5% of the state’s population – and many still struggle with service-related injuries, illnesses, and medical conditions that impact their day-to-day lives.

Are You Eligible for VA Disability Benefits in North Dakota?

The first question most veterans ask when they contact VA Benefits Attorneys is – am I eligible for disability benefits? We may be able to help.

Veterans who live in North Dakota must meet TWO initial criteria to qualify for veterans disability benefits – they must have an injury, illness, or medical condition that impacts their mind or body AND they must have served in the military on active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty for training. 

To qualify for VA disability benefits, veterans who meet the initial criteria must ALSO have a service-connected injury, illness, or medical condition that fits into one of three claims categories set by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

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