VA Disability Lawyers in Cape Girardeau, MO: How To Qualify for VA Benefits

In order to qualify for VA Disability, you must meet two requirements:

  1. Military Service Requirement
    • A veteran of the United States military, or
    • An active service member who will be discharged sometime within the next 90-180 days
  2. Medical Condition Requirement
    • In-service VA Disability claim. You got sick or were disabled while in the military and can link resulting health problems directly to your service.
    • Preservice VA Disability claim. You had an sickness or disability that predated your service and your time in the military worsened the sickness/disability.
    • Postservice VA Disability claim. You had a injury that was caused or worsened by your service, which surfaced sometime after that service ceased. Under federal law, some illnesses and injuries are surmised to stem from active service and can be allowed for the purposes of a VA Disability claim one year after discharge.
