Soldier Saluting the FlagDo you have a claim for VA benefits? We handle VA benefit claims related to combat wounds, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), chemical exposure and other service-related medical problems. In VA benefit cases, the veteran is entitled to bring a claim no matter how long it has been since he or she got out of the service. Additionally, a veteran has the right to reopen a claim that has already been denied by the Department of Veteran’s Affairs.

Congress designed the veterans’ claim process to be veterans’ friendly. As President Lincoln said the purpose of the Department of Veteran’s Affairs is “to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow, and his orphan.” There is no time limit on when a claim can be brought. Congress recognized that, sometimes, an event that occurred in service may take many years to cause a disability. Eligibility for most VA benefits is based on discharge from active military service under other than dishonorable conditions. Active service means full-time service as a member of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, or as a commissioned officer of the Public Health Service, the Environmental Services Administration or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
