What are the chances of getting VA disability?
There are no guarantees when you apply for veterans disability payments. The VA is notoriously difficult to navigate and the process can be extremely time-consuming, with many claims dragging out for more than a year or even two.
According to a 2017 report by the Department of Veterans Affairs, roughly 70 percent of claims are initially denied, and roughly 30 percent of appeals were approved.
However, do not be discouraged. Representation by a veterans benefits lawyer serving Carrboro and the Triangle can help improve your chances of approval for VA disability.
According to the same 2017 report, those who did not have any representation in appealing their claim were approved just 24 percent of the time, while those who hired an attorney were approved 39 percent of the time.
That is a huge difference — and one that is certainly worthwhile when seeking potentially life-changing benefits.

How does veterans disability work?
The VA disability claims process can be complex. You have to demonstrate significant evidence of your disability as well as significant evidence that the injuries or illness were incurred during your military service.
Once your claim has been reviewed by the VA, you will be assigned a VA disability rating. This rating is a percentage in increments of 10 that designates your level of disability, according to the VA.
- A 20% disability rating entitles a veteran to $281.27 in monthly benefits
- A 60% disability rating entitles a veteran to $1,131.68 in monthly benefits
- A 100% disability rating entitles a veteran to $3,106.04 in monthly benefits
For more information on recent VA disability compensation rates, please visit the VA online.
NOTE: Your monthly benefit may be increased if you are married or have dependent children.
Keep in mind, however, that you do not have to accept “No” for an answer, and you can appeal for a higher disability rating. A veterans benefits lawyer with experience in Carrboro NC can help with this process.
Remember, the difference between a 90% and 100% disability rating can be more than $1,000/month, so it’s important to appeal if you believe your disability rating is too low.

“I’ve been denied veterans disability benefits. What now?”
You do have options if you’ve been denied by the VA. Our attorneys can handle all aspects of the appeals process, or assist you in filling a new claim for benefits.
A VA-accredited veterans benefits lawyer can help you collect important evidence including medical records, military service records, and even testimony from friends, family and fellow veterans. All of this evidence will play an important role in determining the outcome of your claim.
If you’ve been denied, do not be discouraged. A recent study found that 70 percent of initial claims are denied, and that errors are made in roughly 60 percent of those denials.
