Veterans Benefits

By Robin Gibson

If you served your country and received a debilitating injury while on duty you deserve far more than just the condolences and admiration of the country. It is the duty of the military to provide for its veterans, especially those that were injured. Your disability might be conflicting with your type of post military work and may be providing for yourself and your family close to impossible.

If you are a disabled veteran and are unable to work, then it is wise for you to apply for veterans disability benefits. In order to qualify for these benefits, you must have a disability that is service-related and be honorably discharged from military service.

Disability compensation depends on a couple of things on how severe your disability is and how many dependents you have. Other things such as loss of a limb, dependent makeup and disabled spouse also come into play when your benefits are calculated.

This should not be something you have to live with. There are veteran disability compensation programs that are meant to provide income and medical reimbursement for veterans who were injured while on duty. Speak up for your rights and demand the compensation you deserve from the Veteran’s Affairs office closest to you.

Veterans who were injured during their service in the military are entitled to education, training and subsistence allowances, disability compensation and pension for disabilities, grants from the Department of Veterans Affairs for homes designed for wheelchair use or those who have lost eyesight along with funds for vehicles or vehicle modification due to disability, Veterans insurance proceeds and dividends including interest on insurance dividends left on deposit with the Department of Veterans Affairs, dependent-care assistance benefits, and death benefits.

Your individual state may offer certain Veterans benefits in addition to those provided by the federal government. Since these benefits vary from state to state, you will need to research your particular state to determine if it offers any additional Veterans benefits.

Veterans disability benefits are readily available for qualified military personnel. The military often denies disability claims but it does have an appeals process in place. To appeal, you must complete a Notice of Disagreement. It is also advisable to hire an attorney at this point to increase your chances of being approved.

For any veteran returning from war, it is essential for him or her to know their service is valued, and the best way to do this is to make sure he or she receives the same privileges as the people they defend. By investigating some of the benefits mentioned about, a returning veteran will surely be on the right path to discovering all the opportunities they have available upon a safe return to the country.
