  • Breaking Down the Stigma: A Guide to Understanding VA Disability

       (0 reviews)


    VA disability is a complex subject, one that can be difficult to understand. It's important to remember that all veterans are entitled to certain benefits, depending on their disability status.

    VA disability can be broken down into three categories: 

    • service-connected, 
    • non-service-connected, and 
    • unemployability. 

    Service-connected disabilities are those disabilities caused by service in the military, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), hearing loss, or a traumatic brain injury. 

    Non-service-connected disabilities are those not caused by military service, such as degenerative joint disease or chronic pain. 

    And lastly, unemployability means a veteran is unable to work due to their disability. You will hear the term extra-schedular, Unemployability is an extra-schedular rating.

    Claims for VA disability can be extremely complicated, and veterans should never feel guilty for needing help. When submitting a claim, veterans should include all necessary documentation and forms and thoroughly describe the disability. It's also important for veterans to remain as organized as possible and keep track of all documents and communication with the VA. 

    Finally, veterans should be aware of their advocacy options, such as working with veterans organizations or a VA-accredited attorney, to ensure their claim is handled properly.

    Overall, VA disability can be a confusing and intimidating process. However, with the right information and resources, veterans can confidently navigate the system and access the benefits they are entitled to. By breaking down the stigma of VA disability, we can ensure veterans get the support they need.
