Applying For A Better Rating

Nationwide Accredited Appeals Attorneys Will Help You Apply For a Better Benefits Rating!

You and Your Loved Ones Deserve the Stability Your Sacrifices Earned.
Veteran, Veterans, Increased Rating Veteran, Veterans Benefits
Under certain circumstances, the VA may increase a Veteran's disability rating in light of new evidence that their condition has deteriorated.

If your family needs economic benefits for medical expenses or strictly to survive from day to day, then it’s clear that your Veterans’ benefits are incredibly important. Eligibility, as well as a rating percentage, are areas that can be subject to errors by the VA officials who, unfortunately, usually have little to no time to accurately assess your claims.

Do you feel as if your rating does not match your claim?  

Or does your family need aid? That’s where our firm comes in.

Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban see it as our duty to help eligible Veterans and their family members to apply for the rating that they feel strongly mirrors their needs. 

I Want A Better Rating, How Can I Apply?

If you are interested in applying for a better rating, the most important thing to know right away is that you can have an accredited agent, or an attorney aid you with the process.  

From there, it’s important for you to take the following steps to obtain a better rating:  

•Make sure all claims are in conjunction with your prior medical records.

• Do not give a handwritten application, please use the computer, and print it out.

• Do not wait to get started, time is a key factor in getting a better rating.

• Compile all vital information from your medical records into a summarized sheet.

• Present yourself in a polite and professional manner, it may make a difference.

• Make sure all files that the VA requests are correct and up to date.

• Keep all original documentation and keep extra copies in a safe place.

Additionally, you can find a list of conditions that are covered by Veteran’s benefits online by simply clicking here.
