Park River }-- alllarltan301 County Road 12B 284-7115 AUTO PARTS -Walsh County Veterans Service Office Here are some common reasons veterans don't want to make a VA dis- ability claim: Myth: I don't have a disability. This is probably the most common reason veterans don't file a dis- ability claim. It's unfortunate that there is a stigma around the term "dis- ability." A better way to look at a VA disability claim is to say, "I have a medical condition that occurred during, or was caused by, my military service." Likewise, you can think about "disability compensation'' as an insur- ance policy against those same medical conditions. An approved disabil- ity claim will give you access to VA medical care and a monthly disability compensation payment (for ratings 10% or higher). Filing a VA disability claim isn't milking the system- it is a way to in- sure your future self from potentially worse medical conditions, get the medical treatment you need, and receive monetary compensation from lost earnings potential. Myth: Having a VA disability rating will affect my future employment options. Many jobs require members to be in top physical condition (police, firefighters, first responders, federal agents, etc.). Some of these careers may even require the member to pass a physical fitness test or other med- ical screening. In almost all of these cases, the underlying medical con- dition and your health and fitness will determine your ability to qualify for the job. The fact you have a VA disability rating generally won't im- pact your ability to land the job. To counter this myth, a VA disability rat- ing may actually give you additional Veterans Preference Points for federal employment (some states may have a similar program for state job applications). Myth: Getting VA Disability benefits will take them from someone who deserves them. This is a noble line of thinking, but it's not true. There is no quota or maximum number of veterans who can receive VA disability benefits. The VA also places veterans into Priority Groups based on the severity of their disability ratings, economic need, and other factors. The VA is there for all veterans, not just those who have the "greatest" need. You owe it to yourself and your family to receive the care and benefits you have earned. Next time, I will expand on more misconceptions in filing a disability claim with the VA. Until then, thank you for your service and please call me with any questions at 701-352-5030.
