FAQs

Frequently ASked Questions

1. How long does it take for the benefit to start?

It takes between 3 and 6 months for the VA to decide a case. Sometimes it can be shorter or longer. In 2019 the average was 8 months. (Exception for Veterans on Hospice)

2. Can I get this benefit and get VA disability?

No. The VA has a no double dipping rule. What this means is that if your current benefit is less than the Aid & Attendance rate you qualify for, the current benefit stops, and the new greater benefit starts up.

3. How likely am I to get approved?

If we agree to take on your case you can rest easy knowing that if we were not confident in your case, we would not have taken it. We have a 99% success rate! The 1% is due to a few clients who were not honest with their finances.

4. Do I need to talk to the VA?

No. We encourage you not to talk to the VA while we are representing you. This is so we can present a united front with clear, consistent information.

5. What will my benefit be?
