Veterans Disability Benefits
Veterans Disability Benefits
Providing Justice For Marion County Disabled Veterans
If you sustained one or more disabilities as a result of military service, you may qualify for monetary benefits.

Who Qualifies for Veterans Disability Benefits?
Only veterans of the United States military may qualify for veterans disability benefits. Active service members with disabilities can sometimes initiate the claims process in the months before they are formally discharged.
To qualify for veterans disability benefits, a veteran must meet the following requirements:
The veteran must have a diagnosed disability or disease
The veteran must have experienced an incident during their active service
The disability or disease must be “service-connected,” meaning the incident during active service must have directly caused or triggered the condition
Veterans who were dishonorably discharged are not eligible for veterans disability benefits. Disabilities or diseases caused by misconduct or as a result of avoiding duty will also not qualify.
How Does Filing a VA Disability Claim Work?
Once you discover a disability resulting from military service, you should immediately start the application process. The sooner you submit a VA disability claim, the sooner your effective date for benefits will be.
1. Submit Your Claim
You can complete your claim application online or send the applicable paperwork to the closest VA Regional Office. You must precisely explain the details of your medical condition(s), including the date you began to notice symptoms and the date of your diagnosis.
In addition to providing copies of your medical records, you will also need to submit evidence that demonstrates the disability was caused by your military service.
2. Wait For The Decision
Next comes what can be an extensive period. You may need to wait months or even years before the VA makes a decision. Once the VA has processed your claim, they will approve or reject your request for disability benefits. If they deny your application, you can file a Notice of Disagreement and initiate an appeal. This appeal must be submitted within one year of your denial.
3. Disability Assignment Received
If your claim is approved, the VA will assign a disability rating that determines the level of benefits you will receive. The more severe the disability, the higher the disability rating. Veterans with higher disability ratings receive larger monetary amounts each month.
Our Indianapolis veterans disability attorneys can guide you through each stage of this sometimes-frustrating process. We are prepared to pursue an appeal, if necessary, and will fight to obtain a disability rating that is consistent with your condition. No matter your circumstances, we will aggressively advocate for you every step of the way.
