Permanent Disability

by Jim Fausone

If you have a disability rating from VA, the first step is done. But you will want to get rated at 100% permanently disabled if appropriate. It is just one way that a disabled vet can take care of his family now and in the future. Without that designation, the vet’s family is not eligible for many benefits including medical insurance or college costs. Also, the VA may not pay a survivor's benefit to the surviving spouse unless they can prove the vet’s death is directly related to his military service. Most vets don't want their spouse to have to fight the VA. A recent article is worth reading on this subject.
