Through this course, we explore the full process of submitting a VA Disability Claim in 5 value-packed lessons:
Lesson 1: Introduction. In this quick lesson, we’ll set some groundwork to make sure we have a solid foundation from which to work.
Lesson 2: When to Submit Your Claim. To guarantee you get the most benefits you can, there are a few important steps that need to be taken when submitting your claim that depend on where you are in the separation process or how long you’ve been a veteran. We will cover each circumstance so you can meet all of your important deadlines.
Lesson 3: Gathering Evidence. Here, we will get deep into the details of gathering every type of evidence needed for every type of claim. This is the most important and time-consuming part of the process, so we will make sure you know what evidence is needed for your claim and how to get it.
Lesson 4: Special Circumstances and Additional Things to Submit. The VA gives extra disability benefits for various special circumstances, so we’ll cover each of these circumstances and everything you need to submit to qualify for them. Note: We only cover the special circumstances that are most pertinent to your disability. The VA offers many other benefits which we do not cover, like pensions, business loans, etc., that are not directly related to disability (although disability can contribute or affect them). Make sure to go to the VA directly to see if there are any other benefits for which you qualify.
Lesson 5: The Claim. In this final lesson, we walk step-by-step through the process of submitting both a physical claim and a digital claim (both eBenefits and VA.gov). We discuss how to answer each question and list your conditions in a way to maximize your benefits. NOTE: The VA is switching all digital claims to VA.gov. eBenefits will be shut down March 31, 2022. If you have already started a claim on eBenefits, go ahead and finish it before this date. For all new claims or adjustments to current benefits, use VA.gov.
By the end, you’ll have everything you need to know to submit a perfect VA Disability Claim!
