As a veteran of the United States Armed Forces, you are eligible to receive a wide variety of benefits for your years of service and dedication. One of those benefits includes disability payments if you are ever injured and cannot return to work. But it is not always easy to get benefits, and your claim may even be denied.
If you were injured and cannot earn a living for your family, the veterans disability lawyers at Joe & Martin Injury Attorneys want to help you get the benefits you are owed. We are grateful for your service to our country, and we will do what it takes to build a strong claim for you. Contact us at 843-357-8000 or fill out a free initial consultation form.
What You Need to Apply for Benefits
To apply for benefits with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), you will need the following items:
- Dependency Records: This includes paperwork like marriage certificates, divorce papers, and your children’s birth certificates.
- Discharge and Separation Papers: Use the eVetRecs system to create a request for your DD Form 214 (Report of Separation) to show your dates of active duty military services.
- Employment History: Contact your most recent employer to obtain a copy of your W2 form.
- Medical Evidence: To prove the extent of your injuries, you may need to contact the hospital or doctor’s office where you received treatment to obtain copies of your medical records.
Gathering these items and completing the necessary forms accurately and submitting them before the deadlines can be difficult to do on your own. Let the veterans disability attorneys at Joe & Martin Injury Attorneys handle the legal paperwork while you spend time with your family.
