How can I qualify for veteran compensation and pensions?

You will need to be able to prove you were injured during military service to be eligible for compensation and pensions. The two are different, each with specific eligibility requirements. A Columbia veterans’ disability attorney experienced in veterans' disability matters can help you through the process.

A successful disability compensation claim must prove three things:

  • Current diagnosed disability
  • Evidence of disease, injury, or debilitating event occurred while serving in the military
  • Proof that the disease, injury, debilitating event caused current disability

To qualify for a pension, veterans must prove three things:

  • Total and permanent disability
  • Military service during a time of war
  • Income below specified limits

Veterans often learn that it can be difficult to establish the correlation between current disability and the damages incurred during military service. McLeod Law Group, LLC will help you secure the resources necessary to prove that connection.
