The US government honors America’s veterans by providing numerous healthcare and non-healthcare benefits. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), formally established in 1930, serves as the primary provider of these benefits. A large portion of the VA’s non-healthcare benefits consist of disability compensation for those who have been injured as a result of their service. The adjudication process for establishing entitlement to these disability benefits can seem daunting to attorneys unfamiliar with the process. However, once familiar with the application and appeals process, attorneys can give back to those who have sacrificed so much.
