It's true that VA disability claims can take a long time to be processed. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't make a claim. Your claim will be processed more quickly if you partner with a Veterans Service Officer that can help you double check your claim for completion and accuracy before submitting it for review. It's a good idea to seek the assistance of a veterans service officer before filing your claim. Many organizations offer free benefits claims counseling and assistance including here in Walsh County. Take advantage of their expertise before filing - it will save youa lot of time and stress! Myth: My VA Disability rating is permanent. This is a partial truth. Some disability ratings are permanent, while others are given a temporary rating. In some cases, the VA will send vet- erans a Notice of Reexamination Letter which informs the veteran of their intent to reexamine the veteran to determine whether or not the veteran's medical condition is the same. The reexamination can result in no change, an increased rating, or a decreased rating. ceIlS h u n ty There are also several rules surrounding which disability ratings can Spol-lighl- / be subjected to a reexamination, and times when the VA cannot reexam- ine your disability (including how long you have held the rating, your The merchants below are / / I age, and other factors).
