As a veteran, you may be eligible for two types of Veterans disability benefits: service-connected compensation and non-service connected pension.

  • Service-connected compensation may be available for veterans with an injury or illness that developed or was aggravated during active military service. For example, many veterans returning from combat suffer from brain injury, amputation or post-traumatic stress disorder syndrome (PTSD).
  • Non-service connected pension may be available for service members who served at least 90 days of active duty, including at least 1 day during a period of war. To be eligible for this pension, you must meet income requirements and be permanently and totally disabled or older than 65. A surviving spouse, child or parent may also be entitled to some benefits.

To apply for either service-connected or non-service connected veteran’s disability benefits, you can file an application with the Veterans Administration Regional Office or at the Veterans Hospital, and you will receive a rating decision. Most of the time, these rating decisions are not favorable. You may be denied benefits, or you may not be granted full benefits.  This is where a disability attorney in Denver can help.

Protect Your Rights to VA Disability Benefits

Upon receiving your rating decision, you have one year to appeal this decision by filing a Notice of Disagreement. Once you file this notice, you will undergo a review process with either the Board of Veterans Appeals or a review officer at the VA Regional Office. The officer or agent will issue a decision.

Again, you have the opportunity to appeal this decision before the Veteran Law Judge at The Board of Veterans Appeals. At this hearing, the Veteran Law Judge will review all of your records and ask you about your medical condition, medical history, service activity, work experience and the restrictions caused by your medical condition.

This hearing is generally the best opportunity to win your case – but your case must be properly presented. Our Colorado veteran’s disability benefits lawyers can help you effectively prepare and present your case to improve the likelihood of a successful resolution.
