VA Benefits: What To Know
Honorary discharge from military service typically qualifies you for a range of Veterans Affairs (VA) benefits and services. VA assistance can be valuable if you need help obtaining:
- Medical and hospital care
- Disability benefits if you are unable to work because of one or more physical or mental disabilities
- Assistance with reintegration issues such as reemployment rights, consumer rights, insurance for service personnel and veterans, vocational rehabilitation, suicide prevention and more
In certain situations, we are able to assist veterans who have received an Under Other Than Honorable or Dishonorable discharge by requesting an upgrade to their discharge with the Review Board in hopes of obtaining a correction that would ultimately allow the veteran to be eligible for benefits.
Why Should I Hire A VA Benefits Lawyer?
Communication with the VA can be challenging for veterans not used to working through all the necessary red tape. Some veterans attempt to gain access to benefits on their own. If you try this, you may lose valuable time as you try to decipher all the necessary forms and document your injuries or disabilities correctly. Losing time means losing money for many veterans. An experienced and accredited Veterans Affairs attorney can help you through much more efficiently. Furthermore, if your claim is denied, Bryan Jones can appeal on your behalf before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (USCAVC) and, if necessary, before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
Benefits For Survivors
Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) is program that the VA operates, where it gives money every month to the families of service members who have passed away because of their service. If a military member dies on duty or from an injury or sickness linked to their time in the service, their spouse, children, or parents might get this help. It’s a way to make sure the family can keep paying their bills and living their lives without the income the service member used to provide. DIC is a way to honor the service member’s sacrifice and to help their families move forward.
