Criteria for Winning a VA Disability Claim

Veterans may be eligible for disability compensation from the VA if they meet certain criteria. 

  1. Firstly, they must have served during a period of war or hostilities and have been discharged under honorable conditions. 
  2. Secondly, they must currently suffer from a disability that renders them unable to work. 
  3. Lastly, this disability must be service-related, meaning that it was caused or aggravated by their time in service. If veterans can provide documentation supporting all claims, they may be eligible for monthly payments and other benefits from the VA. 

Is VA Disability Compensation available to everyone?

We consider three basic criteria as we help disabled veterans explore their eligibility for these benefits:

  1. As a result of your service, you have sustained a disability. Whether you served on active duty, on active duty for training, or on inactive duty for training, you may suffer from a service-connected disability. An aggravated pre-existing condition may also qualify as a service-connected disability;
  2. The discharge you received was not dishonorable;
  3. The percentage of your disability rating (discussed next) is at least ten percent.

Unlike other types of disability programs, such as Social Security disability benefits, VA Disability Compensation does not require you to have income or be able to work to qualify.

Common Challenges in the VA Claims Process

There are a number of obstacles veterans face during this process, unfortunately. The VA making mistakes that stall or thwart your benefits can be one of the most stressful things that happens to disabled veterans. The VA may make the following errors on disability benefits and claims:

Evidence is not provided to claimants in a timely manner

Documents lost

Evidence is not thoroughly reviewed

Ratings for disabilities are incorrect

Medical advice that is inadequate

Denying claims incorrectly

A premature termination of benefits
