Disability Advisor explains how veterans can get the maximum compensation benefits they're entitled to for disabilities stemming from active military service. We answer your questions about what military service qualifies and which medical conditions are eligible for compensation providing a list of some claims commonly approved for male and female veterans. We'll show you how to gather the right evidence, track down your service records, and get proper medical evaluations. To deal with the Veteran’s Administration’s (VA's) backlog, we provide tips on avoiding unnecessary delays. The VA has a 30% to 50% error rate, so your claim may be wrongly denied. Our articles lay out the steps in the appeal process and explain how to refute common errors to secure an accurate disability rating. Disability Advisor also covers VA housing assistance and dependent benefits.
