Filing a claim for VA benefits is a difficult process, and many eligible veterans are denied benefits every year due to minor errors and procedural mistakes.Â To ensure that your own claim is filed properly and on time, please contact an experienced Champaign VA benefits lawyer who can advise you.Â
The Veterans Health Administration (VHA) provides qualifying veterans with a wide range of medical, surgical, and rehabilitative care. Each veteranâ€™s medical benefits package is unique, but most include services to help veterans:
While all eligible veterans receive coverage for these types of care and services, only some quality for additional benefits, such as dental care. Generally, the full list of a personâ€™s covered benefits depends on a few different factors, including:

In addition to health care, the VA also provides many veterans and their family members with education benefits, such as:
These benefits can all be used to get a traditional degree, on-the-job training, internships, or non-college degrees. For instance, the Survivorsâ€™ and Dependentsâ€™ Educational Assistance (DEA) Program provides education and training opportunities to the dependents of veterans who became totally and permanently disabled as a result of their time in the military, including academic counseling, help achieving career and education goals, and assistance with evaluating career choices.Â
The VA also helps veterans become homeowners by providing home loan guaranty benefits and access to other housing-related programs that help veterans adapt, build, buy, repair, or retain their homes. Although VA home loans are actually provided by private lenders like mortgage companies and banks, the VA does guarantee a portion of each loan, which helps lenders offer more favorable terms. Available loans and grants include:
Each of these loans has its own eligibility requirements, so it is important to speak with an attorney before beginning the application process.Â
If you are a former service member, you could qualify for VA benefits, such as home loans, education benefits, and health care benefits. To speak with an experienced Champaign VA benefits lawyer about your own options, please call The Comerford Law Office, LLC or send us an online message today.Â
I contacted Jim after my first denial for SS Disability. He was referred to me by a good friend who had retained him for her Disability odyssey as well. My Disability case was somewhat difficult because I didn’t have a nice, large cache of medical documentation to back up my claim. Despite this and other complications Jim helped me get through my hearing and I received a fully favorable decision from the Judge and now I am just waiting to start receiving my benefits,
James is an absolutely great lawyer. He fully understands his area of expertise, he’s quick to answer any questions with clear, concise directions on how to proceed. His insight into understanding how to navigate with many case laws and government agencies helped me as his client better understand the case law and it’s ways. James is quick to answer emails and phone calls, and made me feel very comfortable. I highly, highly recommended James for his case law specialties. A professional and true gentleman, even when I would ramble on with worry, James was very understanding and able to put my concerns at ease.

Jim is a good lawyer that helped us through a difficult purchase of our home(he also was the lawyer for the sale of our previous home).
We had quite a few issues with the details of the purchase with both the bank and the seller that James made sure were resolved as quickly as possible. When the selling lawyer would not respond to phone calls/emails Jim physically went to the lawyer’s office and made sure that the final details were pushed through.
I would recommend Jim as an attorney as he is very knowledgeable and thorough on the work that he does.
