VA Benefits | Applying for VA Benefits? Avoid the Simple Mistakes
VA Benefits | In the pursuit of VA benefits, you are required to fill out plenty of forms. That may sound easy enough, but knowing which forms to include with your submission is key in determining how quickly the VA addresses your claim. Forgetting to submit a particular form is among the many mistakes and pitfalls that can derail a claim. Working with an experienced, VA-accredited attorney will speed things along.
Delays Can Be Frustrating
Filing for VA benefits is not something that comes easy to the average person who has limited experience in government workings. Going it alone can be a daunting task. Filling in a section of paperwork with the wrong information certainly can slow the application.
Is a simple mistake on your paperwork going to mean you are no longer eligible for VA benefits? Probably not, but you may find yourself frustrated by delays while trying to get things worked out. Meanwhile, you probably are in need of the financial assistance these benefits provide. If working with an attorney means avoiding or shortening these hassles and getting your benefits as soon as possible, it will be well worth your time to use an attorney.
Have Your Questions Answered
A VA-accredited attorney will provide you with the answers to any questions you have along the way. In many cases, the attorney’s office has staff on hand to fill out and submit the VA claim application. All you have to do is provide answers to fill in the blanks and produce documents to support the answers. That means no guessing whether you are doing it right, as you’ll have a knowledgeable team working for you. With peace of mind from having the right information, the process of pursuing VA benefits won’t be as stressful as it would be otherwise.
It’s important that veterans are awarded the benefits they deserve as a result of their service to our country. However, a simple mistake on your application could lead to a costly delay before you are actually provided benefits. Reach out to Mortellaro Law for assistance with this process.
