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.

Veterans Benefit FAQ


How Can I Apply for VA Benefits?

To file for VA Disability Benefits, you can apply:

  • Online: You can file for benefits online through the Veterans On-Line Application (VONAPP).
  • By Mail: You can submit VA Form 21-526 by mail or bring it to your local VA Regional Office.
  • By Phone: You can call the VA at 800-827-1000 and request an application form by mail.

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 dishonorable.
  • 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.
