Veteran Disability Rating
It isn’t common to hear of veterans getting the disability rating they deserve from the VA their first time filing. Looking to get an increase on your claim with the VA is a whole different battle in itself. Over a million veterans currently do not have the disability ratings they deserve. This is due to the outdated system in place that is hard to navigate. Unfortunately, there’s a lot of veterans who don’t even realize they could be eligible for an increase.
The good news is, there are businesses that are dedicated specifically to guiding veterans through their disability claims. Of course, you’ve heard of DAV, VSO, VA-certified free help organizations, but if there are so many free resources, why are so many veterans turning toward paid services?
Why work with a consulting service?
For starters, many consulting firms are often run by disabled veterans themselves. This means they are not only more passionate about what they do, but they have likely been through the process with their very own claims.
Secondly, some veteran consulting services have their own private networks of medical providers instead of working with VA-contracted doctors. Private medical providers can make all the difference when you go in for your exam.
Lastly, they have done the research for you. They know the ins and outs of the system. Many of them have employed ex-VA raters, which gives them even greater insight into how to best optimize your rating. Lacking thorough knowledge of the VA claims system can mean the difference between obtaining the rating you deserve and fighting for the rating you deserve for years to come.
