Open your claim for VA benefits by submitting a claim with the VA. Your claim should include every condition you wish to have considered for a service connection, and all supporting evidence necessary to prove both the service connection and to support the Disability Rating requirements.
Once your claim for benefits has been received, the VA will request and review additional evidence from you, your healthcare providers, government agencies, and others. The Rating Veterans Service Representative (RVSR) will review the evidence and make a decision.
The VA will then issue a Rating Decision. The VA can either deny or grant your claim at this stage. If your claim is granted, you will receive a disability rating with an effective date. This is the date you can start receiving disability benefits. It is typically the date your claim was received.
If you disagree with the VA benefits claim decision or believe you should have received a higher disability rating, you can file a Supplemental Claim, request a Higher Level Review, or file a Board Appeal. We recommend that you seek experienced legal counsel when filing your appeal.
If your claim for VA disability benefits was denied, a VA disability benefits attorney can help you receive a higher disability rating, gather the necessary evidence to prove your claim, and tailor an argument on your behalf to the decision-maker or judge.
If your claim for VA disability benefits was denied, you may be shocked, frustrated, and angry. You may also have unanswered questions.

Here are answers to some of the most common questions about a denial of a claim for VA disability benefits, and why you should hire a VA disability benefits attorney to help pursue your claim.
If you are disabled because of a service-connected injury or illness, you are entitled to VA disability benefits. The specific benefits you are entitled to receive will vary based on the nature of your disability, but may include:
Your disability rating dictates the amount of monthly benefits you are entitled to receive. If you suffer from multiple disabilities, benefits can be combined. If you have dependents and your rating is 30% or more, you may be entitled to an additional allowance.
You are not required to hire a Veterans Disability attorney to pursue a claim for VA benefits. But if your claim for disability benefits was denied, an attorney can help prove that your disability is service-connected and that you are entitled to benefits.
To be eligible for VA disability benefits, your disability must be “service-connected.” This means that your injury or disease was sustained or aggravated during active military service.
Almost any injury, illness, or condition that was sustained or made worse during your military service can be considered service-connected. If your claim was denied, an experienced VA disability benefits attorney can review your case and help you obtain the benefits you are entitled to receive.
When you answered the call, you were promised benefits if you became disabled due to your military service. If the VA denied your claim, an experienced VA disability benefits attorney will be on your side to fight for the benefits you deserve.
If you are on the fence about hiring an attorney, remember that it was the VA that denied your claim.
