If you are a veteran living in Florida, you have a number of benefits and services that you have earned through your service. From medical coverage to home loans, as well as special tax exemptions and education or tuition assistance. The list of potential benefits is really quite long, but many veterans do not get their benefits because they fail to apply properly and have their applications unfairly denied. If you are thinking about applying for VA benefits, working with a VA benefits attorney can help ensure that your application will be approved.
Eligibility for VA Benefits
Applying for VA benefits can be confusing, because each benefit has its own eligibility requirements. For instance, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission offers free hunting and fishing licenses to disabled veterans. This particular benefit requires cortication by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and a Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs 100% Service-connected Disabled Veteran Identification Card. On the other hand, applying for a VA loan requires proof of eligible service, and little else. Some common eligibility requirements include:
- Proof of residency
- Proof of service
- Proof of injury
- Proof of honorable discharge
Unfortunately, the application process for VA benefits, both at the state and federal level, is not simple. In fact, it is often a long, frustrating process, filled with potential pitfalls that can make it difficult to have success. Even something that seems simple, like proving that you are, in fact, a disabled veteran, is incredibly complex.
The complexity of the VA benefits process is the reason that so many veterans fail to get all of the benefits they are due. The legal team at Lehn Law, P.A., believes this should not be the case. Attorney Joseph Lehn leads a team that is passionate about helping veterans get the benefits they have earned through their service, and ensuring that no veteran is denied benefits when fully qualified to receive them.
