Veterans Benefits can be complex and there are so many things that you possibly do not know. Accordingly, the best approach is to gather up all of your paperwork — including service records and discharge forms — and spend some time discussing the situation with an attorney experienced in this area. As with Medicaid, it is essential that you have skilled legal counsel who has been through this arduous government process numerous times.
You may not know about a number of benefits available to you or your family members, let alone how the application and appeals processes work. Veterans Benefits include medical care and disability compensation, but there may be other programs for which you qualify and should apply. That means sorting through the details of available benefits, eligibility criteria, and the appropriate government agency that handles a particular benefit. In addition, you need to complete the proper forms properly or face rejection.
