Are You Eligible for VA Disability Benefits in Wyoming?

Many veterans who contact us at VA Benefits Attorneys want to know – am I eligible for VA disability benefits? That is a question we can help answer.

To be eligible for disability compensation, Wyoming veterans must first meet TWO initial criteria – they must have an injury, illness, or medical condition that affects their 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 that primary criteria, the veterans must have a service-connected injury, illness, or medical condition that ALSO fits into one of the claims categories we have listed below:

  • You became sick or injured while serving in the military and your current condition can be linked to your military service – In-Service Disability Claim.
  • You had an illness or injury prior to your military service and your military service made the condition worse – Pre-Service Disability Claim.
  • You have a disability that is related to your military service that was diagnosed after the conclusion of your military service – Post-Service Disability Claim.

What Are Additional VA Benefits for Wyoming Veterans?

Did you know that disability compensation is not the only benefit provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs? If you didn’t – you are not alone. Many veterans are not aware of the additional benefits provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The available benefits include VA Home Loans with no money down and no mortgage insurance – which are used by just 6% of military veterans in the United States. The GI Bill is an added benefit for our veterans who hope to continue their education and is used by 40% of veterans.

How Do You Appeal a Denied VA Disability Claim?

Military service and a service-related injury, illness, or medical condition do not guarantee VA disability benefits.

We know that a denied claim can be frustrating when you battle with disabilities in your day-to-day life – but that is not the end. VA disability claims may be denied for a variety of reasons and with the help of VA Benefits Attorneys, we can appeal your denied claim via three methods – a Supplemental Claim, a Higher-Level Review, or a Board Appeal.

What Are the Wyoming State Veterans Benefits?

Federal veterans benefits provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs provide an impressive level of support for veterans in the Cowboy State – but they are not the only veterans benefits available. The Wyoming Veterans Commission works hard to provide additional support for veterans who are residents of the state. 

The benefits provided by the Wyoming Veterans Commission will support veterans and their families in a variety of ways. Tax exemptions, employment assistance, veterans homes, monetary grants, employment preferences for state jobs, tuition assistance, and burial services are just a few of the benefits that resident veterans of Wyoming may be eligible for.
