Many disabled veterans don’t know about the compensation benefits they deserve. Whether it means filing for the first time or getting a disability rating increase. Many times this is due to veterans not knowing the easy VA disability claims.

Did you know as of 2021, disabled veterans with a spouse, no children, and a 100% VA disability rating are entitled to a monthly disability payment of $3,321.85?

That’s a lot of money, and it could help hundreds of veterans struggling to support themselves and their families. 

You might be wondering, “what kind of conditions can I get approved for?”

Here are the top 5 easiest VA disability claims to get approved. 

Tinnitus

Tinnitus, otherwise known as “ringing in the ear” syndrome, is a condition many Veterans suffer from. This is usually due to firing weapons without hearing protection or being near explosives. You’ll hear it for a few seconds after being close to deafening noises.

Tinnitus is number one on our list since it is the easiest claim to get approved by the VA for disability benefits. 

Mental Health Issues

Many Veterans battle with mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, and PTSD. This type of claim is a “high-value” claim. Thus, being more likely to affect veterans than skin conditions. 

Statistics show more than 90% of disabled veterans have a rating of 30% or higher for mental health conditions. In fact, 4 out of 10 Veterans with a mental health condition receive a 70% or higher rating. 

Musculoskeletal Conditions

Musculoskeletal conditions include strains, sprains, arthritis, reduced flexion, and function in arms, legs, back, and neck. Some common symptoms of musculoskeletal injuries include:

  • painful motion
  • reduced range in motion
  • weakness/fatigue
  • loss of movement or coordination

Musculoskeletal conditions typically have a rating of 20% or less. You can also claim them as a secondary condition. Musculoskeletal issues may be provoked by conditions such as:

  • PTSD
  • depression
  • side effects from prescription medications
  • traumatic brain injury 
  • injuries in other areas of the body 

Scars

VA disability claims for scars typically range from 10% to 80% VA disability rating. It’s important to note that the scarring also needs to be significant to be service-connected. However, it is a pretty straightforward process. You just have to prove your scars were a result of active duty. 

Presumptive Disorders

You might be wondering, what is a presumptive disorder? It’s a condition that the VA assumes is service-connected. Fortunately, even if there is no specific evidence. 

For many Vietnam War veterans, the VA these conditions as presumptive:

  • prostate cancer 
  • respiratory cancers
  • heart disease
  • b-cell leukemia
  • soft-tissue sarcoma
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Hodgkin’s disease
  • type 2 disease 
  • AL amyloidosis
  • chronic lymphocytic leukemia 
  • porphyria cutanea tarda
