Filing and appealing VA claims feels overwhelming on your own
The Good News is, You don’t have to!
Veteran Services Officescan help you with compensation/pensions, medical care, military records, educational benefits, family benefits, veteran home loans and more. Basically, everything you EARNED through your service, for both you and your family. Typically they will help you obtain missing records and file claims and appeals for you, and follow up.
In Santa Clara County 95% of all claims are processed on line, with a 94% first time approval within an average of just six weeks. Compare that to the huge first time rejection rate and a wait of over a year and a half for people filing via paper, on their own.
The professionals at VSOs are certified by the VA. They interview you to find out about all your circumstances and your family’s as well. They know what to say and how, to maximize your compensation and treatment options. And they are FREE.
Some counties may also have dedicated funds to assist you with temporary shelter/utilities, food/health supplies, medical/dental, job placement, counseling, and transportation.
