Related Health Problems
There are many health problems that veterans suffer from including traumatic brain injuries, severe burns, spinal cord injuries, severe lacerations, exposure to toxic chemicals, Gulf War syndrome, cancer, diabetes, depression, PTSD, and many more illnesses.
Every year, thousands of veterans file disability claims and the government denies or rejects the claims even veterans deserve the benefits and their families need the benefits.
Disability Benefits Available to Veterans
The VA offers two main veteran benefit categories:
Service-connected pension - Disability benefits can be awarded for physical or psychological impairments. For service-connected veterans' disabilities, benefits can be awarded for even a partial disability. To qualify, you must have a discharge and a current diagnosis of a service-connected disability. You must also prove that an incident in service caused the disability or that the disability began during service.
Non-service-connected pension - Benefits are awarded to disabled veterans whose disabilities are not service-connected. These veterans may be entitled to a non-service-connected pension. To receive these benefits, a veteran must have served on active duty during a period of war, the disability must be a total and permanent disability, and the veteran is required to meet certain financial requirements.
