One of the hardest things to know about Veteran’s Benefits is that there are so many things that you possibly do not know. Accordingly, the best approach is to gather up all of your paperwork and spend some time discussing the situation with an attorney experienced in this area. It is essential that you have skilled legal counsel who has been through this arduous government process numerous times.
One of the hardest things to know about Veteran’s Benefits is that there are so many things that you may not know. Programs and services for veterans are not the same everywhere for every veteran. In fact, some programs are based on when and where you served, your length of service, the type of discharge you received, and whether it was in wartime or during peace time.
The definition of a “veteran” also has different meanings for different types of benefits because the relevant legislation was enacted piecemeal. Each benefit may have different criteria for its applicants. For example, you may qualify for some benefits with just one day of service, but for others you need to have served a minimum amount of time, like two years. 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. After you’ve served in our country’s armed forces, we want to make sure that you are aware of all benefits to which you or your family members are entitled.
