Common Types of Veterans Disability Claims

Veterans can suffer from a large range of physical and mental health problems as a result of their service, such as:

Our Department of Veteran Affairs-accredited attorneys can help get you the benefits you deserve. You may be eligible to receive veterans disability benefits even if you are already receiving, or may also qualify for, Social Security Disability benefits. Also, you may qualify for veterans benefits even if you are working.

Our entire legal team is thankful for your service, and we are passionate about making sure veterans like you receive the full amount of benefits and assistance they deserve.

Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) Benefits for Survivors

If you’re the spouse, parent, or child of a veteran who died while on active duty, from a service-related injury or illness, or while receiving veterans benefits, you also may be eligible for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) benefits.

Got Questions About Veterans Disability Benefits? We’ve Got Answers.

Applying for and receiving veterans disability benefit is rarely a straightforward and easy process. The VA has strict criteria for reviewing and approving claims. At Ponce Law, our lawyers know the ins-and-outs of disability claims, but we also believe that it’s important for applicants and their families to understand the process as well.

The following questions and answers can help prepare you for what’s to come if you decide to file a claim with our help:

  1. Why are some veterans disability claims denied?
    The VA denies claims for many reasons, including missing, incomplete, or inaccurate paperwork. It also may deny veterans who received other-than-honorable discharges, veterans who became disabled outside of service, and veterans who became disabled because of misconduct during their service.


  1. Is it possible to work and still receive veterans disability benefits?
    Yes, but you may see a reduction in your benefits. Veterans disability benefits are based on disability ratings, and if yours is 100% and you go back to work, you may get less money. It’s important to talk to a lawyer before deciding to go back to work part-time or full-time.


  1. Can you get veterans disability benefits and Social Security disability benefits simultaneously?
    Yes. Both types of benefits involve their own individual application process, and both have strict requirements for approval. However, the disability ratings you’re assigned by either the VA or the Social Security Administration can help support your claim if you decide to pursue benefits via the other program. At Ponce Law, we know both VA benefits and SSD benefits, and we can help you make the right decision for you and your loved ones.

Use These Resources to Learn More about Your Claim

Want to learn more about the VA and veterans benefits on your own? At Ponce Law, we’re always available to answer your questions, but we know you may want to learn before calling us or while we’re building your claim.

  • National Archives – Request Military Service Records
    Applying for veterans disability benefits requires proving your military service and your medical history while serving. You or your next of kin can get that information on this website, including DD Form 214 (Report of Separation), Official Military Personnel File, and medical and health records.

    Always very professional. When we first called we had no idea if we even had a case, they told us we did. And even though the resolution took a little bit longer than expected, the wait was worth it. They get results and I really appreciated that they consistently gave me updates on the status of my case without me even asking. Thank you Ponce Law!

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
