Who Is Eligible for VA Disability Benefits in Oklahoma?
The first question that we get as Oklahoma VA disability attorneys is – am I eligible for veteran disability benefits? We can help answer that question with a quick overview of the criteria provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
To meet the initial requirements, Oklahoma veterans must meet TWO basic criteria – must have a service-connected injury, illness or medical condition that affects the mind or body AND must have served in the military on active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty for training.
Veterans must also fit ONE of the additional classifications in the list below.
- In-Service Disability Claim – The veteran suffered or was diagnosed with a service-connected injury, illness or medical condition while still in the military.
- 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.
- Post-Service Disability Claim – The veteran was diagnosed with a service-connected injury, illness or medical condition after completion of military service.
Are Oklahoma Veterans Eligible for Additional VA Benefits?
We know that disability benefits are the focus for many Oklahoma veterans – but they are not the only benefits provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Available VA Home Loans make your dream home more affordable and only about 6% of veterans use this benefit. The Montgomery G.I. Bill is available to veterans who seek higher education and will make tuition more affordable. Additional benefits include quality medical care at VA facilities, affordable insurance and employment benefits.

How Can Veterans Appeal a Denied Disability Claim in Oklahoma?
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will deny disability claims for a variety of reasons that include insufficient documentation, incomplete applications and pre-existing conditions not connected to military service. If your claim is denied, you can appeal the denied claim to get the benefits that you deserve. Veterans have three methods of appeal to choose from – a Higher-Level Review, a Supplemental Claim or a Board Appeal.
