Compensation for Atlanta Veterans
How is veterans compensation determined?
Compensation is paid to veterans who received or aggravated an injury or illness during active military duty. These conditions are termed "service-connected." The amount of compensation will vary depending on the severity of the disability and the number of dependents (spouse, children and parents) of the disabled veteran. The severity of the condition is determined by an assigned disability rating. The rating will be anywhere from 0% to 100% disabled and this percentage will impact the amount of compensation you receive.
If you have more than one disability, each one will be given a rating. From this, you will be assigned a combined disability rating. We understand that this process may seem complex. It can be. We offer the service of an Atlanta veterans disability attorney to help you ensure that you receive the maximum benefits that you are entitled to. There is a great deal to know and evaluate in order to properly determine compensation. You cannot always rely on the government to do an accurate job in this regard.
Can the VA take away my compensation?
It is very rare for VA to terminate your benefits even if you have been receiving less than ten years. In any case, the VA cannot terminate your benefits unless you first receive a notice from the VA telling you about your right to have a hearing. You also have the right to appeal any decision to terminate your benefits. If you receive a notice from the VA that your service-connected benefits may be terminated, contact us right away.
