VA Compensation and Benefits for PA Veterans

On this page, I will address VA benefits for Pennsylvania veterans. Applying for and getting VA disability compensation benefits for PA veterans is the same as it is in every other state. This website addresses VA compensation and pension in detail on another page. This page will discuss benefits that are available to PA veterans from the Pennsylvania Veterans Benefits Administration and also some benefits available through the Department of Veterans Affairs. Some of these benefits are specific to veterans from Pennsylvania and disabled veterans from PA. Many of the benefits mentioned on this page are separate from VA compensation and pension benefits. My hope is that you will find benefits available to you as a PA veteran that you might not have been aware of. I will also include on this page the PA Regional Office for VA compensation benefits and a brief discussion of lawyers and other types of representation in a VA compensation claim.
If you have any questions you can call me at 1-877-527-5529.

Lawyers for VA Compensation in PA

Ask a Lawyer Your VA Compensation Question

One thing you should know is that if you have been denied VA compensation benefits you can now hire a lawyer in most situations to help you with your claim. For years, you could only get help from a VA VSO or veterans service organization. A new law was passed in June of 2007 that allows veterans to hire attorneys for their denied VA compensation claims in PA and every other state. Most VA lawyers in PA and other states charge 20% of past due benefits. This means, the lawyer only get paid if he or she is able to get you your benefits or additional benefits, and there is past due benefits owed to you as a result. Some attorneys may charge a higher percentage than 20%, but if they do so it must be approved by the VA when the case is completed. The VA compensation process is very complex and it is a good idea to get help with your claim whether it be a lawyer or a veterans service organization. A good representatives can help a Pennsylvania veteran get their service connected VA compensation benefits in many ways. They first must analyze why you have been denied, or received less than you were entitled to in your rating decision. A lawyer or representative should then review your entire C file and service medical records to make sure it includes all of the evidence that is favorable to your claim. The representative or attorney can then seek additional evidence if it is needed and apply the evidence to the law in a brief which explains to the VA why there decision was wrong, and what you should be entitled to. If you have to attend a hearing it is helpful to have a lawyer by your side to ask the right questions, and present to the judge the best arguments as to why you are entitled to the benefits you seek. VA compensation in Pennsylvania and every other state is a long and frustrating process in most cases. If you would like to ask me more questions about how a VA compensation lawyer can help you with your claim or if you have already decided you want help feel free to call me at 1-877-527-5529. I am located in New Jersey but I handle cases nation wide, but if you prefer a local PA VA lawyer I would be more than happy to help you find one.
