There are several places where YOU can be missing out on money and benefits. Keep reading to learn more.
The #1 area is denied claims. Frequently Veterans will file claims for service-connection only to get denied for a variety of reasons. Many of those reasons are not based in fact or reality. The VA does not make it easy to read those denial letters and figure out exactly the reason for your denial. Accepting a denial in those situations is missing out on money and benefits you deserve. At MRPY Professional Services we specialize in these types of cases. Our providers have extensive experience with difficult and denied claims.
The #2 area is not knowing a condition can be connected to service or a service-connected condition. Most claims are secondary claims meaning they are caused or aggravated by a service connected condition. If you don't know that one of your service-connected conditions is causing another condition then you are missing out. I typically advise people to think about what triggers your medical conditions? When is your condition worse and what other factors in your life are causing you distress? This usually helps in figuring out if it can be service-connected.

The #3 area is not seeking out money above the schedular rating scheme. VA disability compensation is not limited to the percentage you are service-connected for (scheduler rating percentage from 0%-100%). There are several other programs and benefits that pay Veterans in addition to your VA disability percentage rate. These benefits are usually due to a special circumstance or specific disability. The most common and well known benefit is Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) and erectile dysfunction (ED) is the most common condition paying out SMC. Other benefits can include vehicle allowance, clothing allowance, survivorship benefits, medical care for family members exposed to toxins (agent orange, camp Lejeune) even if conditions are NOT service-connected, and many more!
