Helping Veterans

Apply for Compensation & Pension Benefits

New From Dr. Nicole

Choosing to serve your country in the military is a noble occupation. However, the sad truth is that Veterans often find it difficult to get the support they need after leaving the service. This is especially true when it comes to their medical care and putting in claims for disability benefits from the VA.

Veterans frequently aren’t given any guidance in how to navigate this process, resulting in delays and denials, until after years of effort, it’s tempting to simply give up. But you deserve your benefits, and if you were injured in the service, you deserve to be compensated accordingly.

In Navigating Choppy Waters: A Basic Training Guide to Understanding and Maximizing Veterans’ Disability Claims, Dr. Nicole Edwards skillfully explains the compensation and pension process, the different types of claims, how to appeal, and more. Learn what you need to know to successfully claim your benefits.

Abundant C&P Process & Procedures

All Veterans seeking VA disability claims services must go thru the following process:

($500) 60 minute consultation consisting of a current ratings review (using your VA rating decision and code sheet), prior decision letter review, education about the C&P process, prior claim denial reviews to determine why the claims were denied and if you qualify to refile those claims in a manner more likely to be accepted, AND give you suggestions for other possible claims to get you the highest rating possible!

Complete review of pertinent documents and list of them in the history portion, examination with DBQ completion, Nexus letter/Statement with prognosis, severity, and listing of VSARD criteria for ratings, recommended codes for filing claims, copy of office note to prove you were seen in a doctor’s office, and journal articles to support the medical rationale and strengthen your claim (for new claims, or progression statement for increase claims)
