Who can receive VA disability benefits? As an overgeneralization, veterans with service-connected mental or physical impairments may be eligible for VA disability benefits. Veterans with dishonorable discharges are not eligible for VA disability benefits.
What branch of the service can receive VA benefits? All branches that are active-duty are eligible for VA benefits: Navy, Army, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard. National Guard and Reservists troops can be eligible if they were activated during their service. There are strict guidelines for active duty service that you will have to meet.
How much does Woods & Woods cost? Woods and Woods fee is a percentage of your VA Disability back pay and case expenses. We never touch any of your future veterans benefits. If you lose your case you owe Woods and Woods nothing. If we win your case, and only if we win your case, you may have to cover out of pocket expenses such as doctors reports.
What is my case worth? Depends. Your settlement with the VA will be whatever you are owed for backpay; then you will also receive payments monthly after that. Some veterans are owed back pay to the day they left Vietnam. While other veterans back pay is only a short time. Your case worth depends on your effective date which the VA frequently has wrong.
Do I owe Woods & Woods money if I lose my case? No! If your case is lost you owe us nothing, not even case expenses.
How long will my case take? Depends. Woods and Woods will work on your case as quickly as humanly possible. Unfortunately, most of the waiting time is due to the VA’s backlog of cases. The VA is slow and filing a claim takes patience and perseverance.
What if the Veterans Administration (VA) denied my claim already? No problem! You can appeal your claim. There is a limited amount of time you may appeal your claim. If that time has lapsed you can file a new claim.
Does it matter that I left the service years ago? No! Today there are still Korean War and Vietnam War veterans filing VA Benefits claims. There is no cut-off date on when you may file a claim after leaving any branch of the service.
I was married to a service member that died; am I eligible for benefits? Yes! If the veteran died there may be benefits available. Many widows are under the impression their claim died with the veteran and that is plain wrong.
Did I have to serve abroad for VA disability benefits? No. Veterans who served stateside can receive VA disability benefits. Mental and physical impairments are often caused by event that happen on base, during training, or while serving active duty.
If my VA Rating was reduced, is there anything I can do? Yes! You can appeal your rating decision from the Veterans Administration. At Woods & Woods we handle these claims all the time. Having your VA Disability Rating reduced is common and there is something you can do about it.
What if I filed a long time ago and I was denied? You have a couple options. One is to file a Clear and Unmistakable Error Claim (C.U.E.). The other option is to file a new claim. Veterans are not barred from refiling just because your old claim was denied a long time ago.
I already appealed my claim and was denied, is there anything else I can do Yes! You can open a new claim or appeal your other decision. Unfortunately, many veterans wrongly assume a denial is the end of the line; it’s not!
