If you are a veteran in South Carolina, chances are you’ve had some difficulty with the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). With the massive backlog of claims the VA is currently facing, veterans are forced to wait months or even years for a decision to be made concerning their eligibility for much-needed benefits.
Did you know, however, that you can reapply for benefits that you were previously denied? According to the VA, those who have had claims denied for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), can and should reapply for disability benefits.
In the past, if a claim for PTSD was filed without a formal report or any evidence of the abuse on record, the case legally had to be thrown out. Now, the VA is encouraging those whose claims had been previously denied to apply again. New changes to the law now provide for an investigation into the claim of abuse, even if the assault was not reported during the service member’s time of active duty.
This is all a part of an effort to bring more veterans the benefits they deserve for the service they have given to our country.
