Getting veterans benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs shouldn’t be hard, but veterans will often face long waits due to a backlog. This is especially true for those who do not have a representative, as they may not know the ins and outs of VA as well. The Law Offices of Harold W. Conick and Associates knows what it takes to get these veterans benefits, which can be up to $3,100 for certain veterans.
While benefits may be as low as a couple of hundred dollars, those who fully qualify and have two parents could get up to $3,100 per month, according to VA. Those with two parents and a child have the potential to get even more than this from benefits. The amount each individual veteran will attain will depend largely on their situations and the injuries or illnesses they suffer from.
Veterans who have a more developed claim right away, which could be put together with the help of an attorney or representative, may be able to attain their benefits more quickly. The Fully Developed Claim Program is being run by VA to help process claims more quickly, a measure that was put in place to help reduce some of the backlog which exists. Veterans who need their benefits more quickly should look to get their medical records and claim together more quickly with this provision.
The Law Offices of Harold W. Conick, & Associates are available to represent veterans who are dissatisfied with a rating decision and other denial of benefits and wish to appeal such decision further in order to obtain their benefits.
