Veteran Disability Benefits: 5 Tips to a Faster Process

Submitting an application to claim veteran disability benefits can be a frustrating undertaking, especially when you do not hear any feedback from the Department of Veterans Affairs (the VA) for many days after submitting it. The reason could be that something was not right in your application. However, this can be prevented if you take these 5 simple tips to make your application process faster:

1. File for veterans' disability benefits right away. Do not procrastinate a day or two to submit your application because you do not feel like doing it.

2. Research what supplemental documentation and information are required. Then, gather all these necessary materials. You can check the requirements on the VA's website.

3. Submit your application online using the Veterans ON-Line Application (VONAPP) website rather than the postal system. Electronic filing is easier, and the application is received within minutes of submission. Moreover, make sure that you have read the instructions thoroughly before starting to fill out the online application form.

4. Double check the information you entered in the application form. Make sure that you are providing the correct data to avoid problems that will cause delay.

5. Do not hesitate to call the VA to inquire about the status of your pending claim by calling the toll free number 1-800-827-1000.
