Was your veterans disability compensation award simply too small?
Were you denied benefits that you deserve?
Here at The Rep For Vets we want disabled veterans to know that a negative decision by the Department of Veterans Affairs is not the end of the story. You have the right to appeal your disability rating. You were injured while fighting for us. Now let our claims agents fight for you.
The Appeals Process
Our claims agents are experienced with the entire benefit application process, from initial application through final appeal. They do not back down, and will appeal your denial to the Board of Veterans’ Appeals if necessary.
Our claims agents make sure you meet the deadlines for any appeals and help gather additional evidence in support of your appeal. They will advise you about your options at each step and keep you informed about the status of your case. Having knowledgeable guidance throughout a long process can reduce the stress and anxiety of waiting. Our claims agents will be there for you.
Examples of Appeals After Being Denied VA Disability Benefits
Appeals can help you change several different kinds of unsatisfactory results:
- Appeal denials for service connection
- Appeal for higher ratings
- Appeal for an earlier effective date
- Claims for clear and unmistakable error
- Claims for individual unemployability
- Section 1151 claims for vets who have suffered additional disability because of VA hospital error
Many veterans do not realize that they can appeal decisions for higher ratings. When they are awarded low service-connected rating percentages, they just accept them. But you don’t have to.
