What Educational Benefits Does U.S.C. Chapter 35 Offer People That Are Eligible?
The Survivors’ and Dependents’ Assistance Program which was established under Chapter 35 can properly supply funding for education and vocational training for any dependents of disabled Veterans, and those who died, while they were on active duty – or, because of a service-connected condition.
Benefits, good for up to forty-five (45) months, apply to degree and certificate programs, any apprenticeships and/or on-the job training, as well as any correspondence courses.
Full-time benefits are inclusive of the following:
• $1,003.00/mo. of institutional training or correspondence courses.
• $732.00/mo., for the first six (6) months, for any apprenticeship and on-the-job training, any benefits thereafter being reduced.
• $807.00/mo., for training related to farm-cooperation.
• $1,003.00/mo., for any special restorative training.
Part-time educational funds are also available, as are training funds.
How Can Somone Go About Obtaining Affordable Healthcare Using CHAMPVA?
The Civilian Health and Medical Program of the Department of Veterans Affairs is based on a low deductible and compliant with the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
For someone to be eligible for CHAMPVA, it is crucial that they are also ineligible for TRICARE, the Department of Defense healthcare program which was designed for active duty and retired service members. You must also apply to one or all the following requirements:
• Be the spouse or child of a permanently, disabled Veteran that has a disability that is directly service connected.
• Be the surviving spouse of a child or Veteran that died due to a service-connected disability or who died while rated permanently and fully disabled from a service-connected condition.
• Be the surviving spouse or child of a service member that died while in the line of duty.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Much Does It Cost To Hire You?
It does not cost you anything to hire our Veterans Benefits Law Firm as your attorneys. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we win you an award. Our firm charges 20%, which is deducted by the VA from your lump sum payment for retroactive benefits.
How Long Will It Take To Appeal My Benefits Denial?
While it can take six months or more for a Veteran to receive a decision on his or her initial benefits claim from the Department of Veterans Affairs, appeals could take 2 years of more. The Department of Veterans Affairs lacks the funding to properly staff and process benefits applications. The number of applications from recently returning Veterans must be dealt with while the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to actively work towards providing services to prior generations of Veterans.
How Do I Increase My Disability Rating?
Great question! If the condition that you are actively receiving disability benefits for has now ultimately worsened over time, you can file an increased rating claim. It’s fairly simple, and it involves filing out an online claim form or mailing a letter to your regional office documenting the change in your condition.
