The United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) processes and evaluates veterans’ disability claims. Unfortunately, thousands of veterans are surprised to find that their claims are denied by the VA. The process of applying for veterans’ disability can by overwhelming, complicated and frustrating. Many veterans are confused as to why their claims were denied, or why they only qualified for a fraction of what they thought they were eligible to receive.
It is not uncommon for claims to be denied because of incomplete information from the veteran’s doctor, or because the VA did not believe that there was an adequate link between the disability and the veteran’s service record. The VA has physicians complete a Compensation and Pensions Exam (C&P Exam) and the results of this exam might contradict your own doctor’s findings and lead to a weaker link between the disability and your service, or an underestimation of the severity of your disability. The information you provide in your application is important and it is important to know exactly what records are needed and what the records have to illustrate.
If you are in the process of applying for Veterans’ Disability benefits, or in the process of appealing the denial of your application, you should know that you do not have to go through the process on your own.
