As America Observes Patriot Day on 9/11, Allsup Recognizes Veterans’ Service in Global War on Terrorism
Date:9/9/2013

  • Meet VA disability compensation (or service-connected disability) requirements. To qualify, veterans must:
o Have documentation of an injury, disease or exposure while in service.
o Have a current impairment.

Not having a doctor’s agreement when filing could delay the process, according to Allsup. An injury from service alone is not enough to grant the claim.
  • File as soon as possible. The VA only compensates veterans from the date they file an initial claim, which can take up to a year to process. An appeal can last two to five years, depending on the claim’s complexity.
  • Get help. Appealing a claim for VA disability benefits is complicated. Allsup emphasizes that the sooner applicants seek help with their appeal, the more support they receive with their claim. This includes ensuring accuracy and having the proper documentation for the claim. A report by the U.S. Government Accountability Office finds that almost 80 percent of claims open as of November 2012 used the services of a
