Veterans Disability Benefits Lawyers in Connecticut
Legal Assistance for VA Benefit Claims
The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers former members
of the United States military a number of benefits. Some of these benefits
include healthcare services, physical rehabilitation, psychological counseling,
vocational training, and employment services.
Other accessible programs include home loans, discounted insurance coverage,
and educational funding through the GI Bill. Many of these benefits are
also available to a veteran’s spouse, dependents, or survivors as well.
About VA Disability
After military service, many veterans — especially those who saw
combat — suffer from deteriorated physical or mental health. The
VA makes financial compensation available to veterans who have suffered
a disability linked to their military service. The VA will pay monthly
compensation to those veterans who are considered at least 10% disabled
as the result of their military service.
Veterans with serious disabilities who cannot return to the workforce may
access services designed to improve their ability to live as independently
as possible. A veteran who is at least 65 years of age — or one
who is on a limited income and permanently, totally disabled — may
also qualify for a monthly pension.

What Information Will I Need to Apply?
When applying for VA Disability Benefits, the VA requires you document
several pieces of information in your application. These include dependency
records, discharge and separation papers, employment history, and any
medical evidence supporting your disability claim.
How Can I Receive Veterans Benefits?
The VA adheres to a strict set of guidelines when determining if you or
your family members are eligible for benefits.
You may qualify for benefits if you are a:
Veteran: As a veteran, you may be eligible for compensation, pension, or other
benefits if you have a service-related disability — provided you
were discharged from military service under any conditions other than
Veteran Dependent: A veteran’s spouse, a former spouse who has not remarried, a veteran’s
children, and even a veteran’s parents may be eligible to receive
certain veterans benefits under certain conditions.
Veteran Survivor: The surviving spouse, child, or parent of a deceased veteran may qualify
for benefits. These include burial benefits, pensions, gratuity payments,
and dependency or indemnity compensation.
Should I File an Appeal of My Claim?
While an applicant can file an appeal for any reason, most appeal a decision
because they were either denied benefits for a disability they believe
occurred during service or their disability is more severe than rated
by the VA.
