Helping Veterans Understand Their Eligibility For Disability Benefits
Seriously injured or ill veterans may have access to disability benefits provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). These benefits cover both physical conditions like chronic back pain and mental health conditions like depression.
At McKown & Myers, LLP, we have worked with veterans across Indiana for decades. We understand how frustrating and time-consuming the application process for disability benefits can be. We can provide helpful insights and guidance throughout this process.
An Overview Of Eligibility RequirementsTo be eligible for disability compensation, you must have served in the military and have a disability rating. Additionally, one of the following statements must apply to you:
- You became sick or injured as an active duty service member.
- You were sick or injured prior to joining the military but your service made the condition worse.
- Your condition is related to your service but did not appear until later.
