Denied Veterans' Benefits?

Veterans and their family members may be entitled to veterans’ benefits following military duty. These benefits include disability benefits; survivor benefits; vocational rehabilitation and employment benefits; educational benefits; life insurance; health care; home loans; and compensation and pension. Although the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has made a wide range of benefits available to service men and women and their loved ones, obtaining full benefits can be a complex process which involves multiple appeals.

At Morgan and Morgan, our veterans’ benefits attorneys help those who are eligible for veterans’ benefits obtain the compensation to which they are entitled. We assist veterans in appealing denied disability claims, as well as family members who have had their claims for survivor benefits turned down.

Frequently Asked Questions


Appealing a denied claim for disability benefits, death benefits or a disability rating increase is an overly complicated process, which is subject to thousands of pages of regulations and laws. Those who have been denied benefits are not expected to be able to comprehend all these statutes on their own. An attorney can help the claimant meet important deadlines outlined by these regulations, as well as gather additional medical records and documents to support their claim. Additionally, a veterans’ benefits attorney can help the claimant avoid mistakes which may unnecessarily delay their claim; without complication, it takes several hundred days to receive a final decision.


Disability benefits are offered to veterans who suffered injuries and developed illnesses while on active duty, as well as those whose injuries or diseases were made worse by active military service. VA disability compensation is also paid to certain veterans disabled from VA healthcare. To be eligible to receive these benefits, the veteran must have suffered a service-related disability and was discharged honorably from the service. The amount paid for VA disability benefits will depend on the severity of the injury. Additional compensation may be provided in certain cases if the veteran has suffered a severe disability or loss of limb; has a seriously disabled spouse; or has a spouse, child or dependent parent.


The VA offers a wide range of benefits and services for the spouses, dependent children and dependent partners of deceased veterans. These benefits include the following:

  • Education Program Refund
  • Civil Service Preference
  • Commissary and Exchange Privileges
  • Burial Related Benefits
  • Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC)
  • Parents’ DIC
  • Death Pension
  • Education and Training
  • Health Care
  • Home Loan Guaranty
  • Life Insurance Proceeds
