How Can A Veterans Benefits Lawyer In New York Help?

Published on January 15th, 2018

When you return home from active duty, the federal government could offer a variety of financial aids that can help you handle daily expenses and medical care. However, many times, these agencies deny you those aids, even if you are legally entitled to them. In most cases, they need more evidence or proof of your disability, or there were technicalities in your application. A veterans benefits lawyer in New York can help you get what you deserve and navigate the government’s difficult system.

Applying

To receive this assistance, you must first apply through the VA to your state’s local chapter. Along with such, the VA is required to have agencies and agents to help you fill out the forms and ensure that they are correct. However, they may not be as responsive or efficient as you’d like, which means you may want to hire a veterans benefits lawyer in New York to help you go through the initial application.

Appealing

In most cases, people do not hire an attorney until they have gotten their rating and have filed a NOD, which basically says that you don’t agree with their decision and you want to try again. They may ask you for more information and your attorney can help you gather all the evidence needed to prove your case. The appeals process isn’t easy and most people find that an attorney makes it easier to get through.

Helping With Discharge Upgrades

If you received something other than an honorable discharge from the military, you may find it much harder to get the assistance you need when back in the states. Many times, the less-than-honorable discharge was an oversight and your veterans benefits lawyer in New York can get it re-evaluated and upgraded.
