Most people know that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides disability benefits to veterans who are injured or become ill as a result of their service. But what many don’t know is that the VA also provides retroactive benefits
to veterans who had to wait a long time to start receiving benefits.
If you are a veteran with a service-connected disability, you may be entitled to receive VA disability benefits. These benefits can help you cover the cost of medical treatment, housing, and other needs.
In addition to monthly payments, you may also be eligible for a lump-sum retroactive benefits payment. This is a one-time payment that is calculated based on the Effective Date of your disability determination. Below, we have compiled some of our biggest wins for veterans who were eligible for significant back pay based on waiting time and other factors.
