If you have a service-connected disability, or if you have a family member who was in the service and has died, you may be entitled to benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Unfortunately, the complexity of the veterans claims system deters many people from seeking the benefits they deserve.
At the law firm of Andrews & Sanders Law Offices in Savannah, Georgia, we represent veterans and their families seeking VA benefits at every stage of the process. If you need guidance through the VA system, don’t hesitate to contact us for a free phone consultation with an experienced veterans benefits lawyer.
Our firm can help you file your claim for veterans benefits or veterans death benefits if you have not already done so, and if your claim has been denied, we can represent you throughout the appeals process, all the way up to the top if necessary. If you need a discharge upgrade in order to be eligible for benefits, we can pursue that as well.
When it comes to veterans benefits, it is important to never give up. People whose claims have merit and who are persistent at pursuing them have a much higher chance of success than those who abandon their claims after one or more denials.
Every time your veterans claim is denied, there are strict deadlines for filing your next appeal. If you do not meet these deadlines, you will have to start the process all over again. We are familiar with these deadlines and will make sure they are met so that you pursue your claim in a timely fashion.
In addition to service-connected disability benefits, pensions are also available for certain wartime veterans who have become disabled by other means or who are over 65. In some cases, veterans are eligible for the VA to pay for their housebound treatment or assisted living.
We can help you put together an estate plan that takes into account the availability of veterans pensions and help you pursue those benefits if and when you become eligible for them. Contact us to learn more about veterans pensions and all other types of veterans benefits.
