A Veteran-Led Legal Team, Fighting for You!

At Veterans Benefits Law Firm, we understand the sacrifices that Veterans make to protect our country.

Our firm is proudly Veteran-owned and operated, and we have been dedicated to helping Veterans across the United States secure the benefits they deserve for decades.

Military service is based on trust and loyalty. Every day, men and women all across this country take tremendous risks because they believe that the government is here to protect them and their family if, for some reason, something does sadly go wrong.

Sadly, that trust is not always upheld, and many Veterans find themselves fighting a different type of battle when they return home, in an attempt to secure the benefits that they’ve earned.

At Veterans Benefits Law Firm, we fight for our clients with that same trust and loyalty.

Our experienced attorneys work tirelessly to secure the best possible outcome for every Veteran we represent. We believe that Veterans should never have to fight alone for the benefits they earned through their service.

Don’t let the VA deny you the benefits you deserve! Call us at (888) 231-VETS today for assistance.

It does not cost you anything to hire our Veterans Benefits Law Firm as your attorneys. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we win you an award. Our firm charges 20%, which is deducted by the VA from your lump sum payment for retroactive benefits.

While it can take six months or more for a Veteran to receive a decision on his or her initial benefits claim from the Department of Veterans Affairs, appeals could take 2 years of more. The Department of Veterans Affairs lacks the funding to properly staff and process benefits applications. The number of applications from recently returning Veterans must be dealt with while the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to actively work towards providing services to prior generations of Veterans.

Great question! If the condition that you are actively receiving disability benefits for has now ultimately worsened over time, you can file an increased rating claim. It’s simple, and it involves filing out an online claim form or mailing a letter to your regional office documenting the change in your condition.

While we do wish that it was this easy for the surviving spouse of any Veteran that passes away, unfortunately, no, it’s not the case. However, a surviving spouse may possibly be eligible for a death pension, which in itself is solely dependent on their income and/or Dependency Indemnity Compensation (DIC) benefits.

We get asked this question a lot, and the answer is yes, but it’s dependent on the situation. Social Security benefits can be made available, in some cases, to a disabled Veteran who is also actively receiving VA benefits. However, if a Veteran is currently receiving their VA pension, they’re typically not also eligible for Social Security benefits.
