How To Use This Site
Military Disability can seem extremely complicated and overwhelming. Our goal is to make it as simple and straightforward as possible. So here are a few pointers for you on using our site.
Our Free Content
Being prepared for the process, knowing what you can do, and understanding what’s coming next is vital for your peace of mind.
We offer unlimited access to our step-by-step instructions on the DoD Disability Process and the VA Disability Process. Their systems are different, and they both look at different things when rating disabilities, so it’s important that you understand each system. They are combined in the Integrated Disability Evaluation System to make things faster for you, but if you don’t understand them separately, you may think you’ve completed some things you haven’t along the way.
A word we use a lot on this site is “rating.” A Military Disability Rating is given by Rating Authorities to every condition that qualifies for Military Disability Benefits. It’s important that you understand how ratings work and why they are essential.
Finally, read up on the VASRD. The VASRD is the law that Congress passed that defines exactly how conditions should be rated. It’s important to be familiar with how the VASRD works and the various VASRD Principles and Musculoskeletal Principles that determine how the laws are to be applied in various circumstances.
You now have all the basic information needed to conquer the disability system. Want even more?
