Veterans & Sleep Apnea

How Veterans Can Obtain Disability Compensation for Sleep Apnea

If You Developed Sleep Apnea During Your Military Service, You Could Now Be Eligible to Receive Disability Benefits.
Sleep apnea impacts your ability to sleep, which impacts everything that comes after that – your ability to function and your ability to work.

Sleep apnea is a well-known, but profoundly serious condition that affects millions of Americans every year. 

However, various pieces of new data from different Veterans’ disability filings have shown that it impacts Veterans at a much higher rate and, that they’re diagnosed than the public. 

Over the last ten years, the Department of Veterans Affairs has seen quite the rise in claims for sleep apnea and as a result, we’ve now seen a spike in awareness related to this condition. 

If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, it’s possible that you may be entitled to receive Veteran’s disability benefits.  

If the condition developed while you were actively in the service or was aggravated by your time spent serving, you may have a direct service connection. 

As the name suggests, sleep apnea works to impact your ability to sleep, and that in turn damages everything that comes after — such as your ability to function throughout the day, and your ability to work. 

If your sleep apnea is determined to be service-connected, sleep apnea can be used as a vital part of your claim for Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits. 

Furthermore, sleep apnea will most expected cause an individual to stop breathing while asleep, or at least interrupt your breathing over the night. 

Symptoms of sleep apnea can include, but are not limited to the following:  

• Snoring. 

• Choking.

• Pauses in Breathing.

The Three Most Common Elements of a Successful Sleep Apnea Claim

• Diagnosis of Sleep Apnea: Any Veteran trying to obtain a VA rating for sleep apnea should first get a diagnosis from a medical professional. Most typically, any doctor will ask the Veteran in question to take part in a sleep study, and these will happen inside a sleep clinic, but can also take place in your own home with a device. Once you have completed this, you’d want to provide the Department of Veterans Affairs with evidence cementing your sleep apnea diagnosis. 

• Active-Duty Aggravation of Sleep Apnea: Veterans will not receive any type of diagnosis during their time in the service, nor is that required for a VA rating, however, any Veteran trying to apply for benefits must show that their sleep apnea either started or worsened during their time as active-duty. 

• Nexus Combining Diagnosis and Event: Finally, Veterans must portray the nexus between their diagnosis and whatever event took place that directly led to the sleep apnea condition becoming known. Many disabled Veterans use nexus letters from their doctor(s) to help articulate the link between both diagnosis and service.

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.
