Veterans Benefits Attorneys Lake County

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers a wide range of benefits to former servicemen and women who fulfill certain eligibility requirements. Unfortunately, these requirements vary depending on the type of benefit in question, and the application process is notorious for its complexity.

If you served your country as a member of the Armed Forces and have questions about VA benefits, it is important to consult with experienced veterans benefits attorneys Lake County who can walk you through eligibility requirements and the application process. 

Medical Benefits

All enrolled veterans qualify for the VA’s comprehensive medical benefits package, which includes access to:

  • Preventive care, including health exams, nutrition education, immunization against infectious diseases, and counseling on genetic conditions;
  • Both primary and specialty care;
  • Inpatient services, such as surgery, medical treatment, short-term treatment for a severe injury, kidney dialysis, and specialized care for those suffering from traumatic injuries;
  • Outpatient services, including assisted living and home healthcare; 
  • Diagnostic services;
  • Medical equipment, prosthetics, and prescription medications;
  • Mental health services to treat conditions such as PTSD, military sexual trauma, substance abuse, and depression; and
  • Emergency care services.

Vocational Rehabilitation

In addition to healthcare benefits, the VA also helps veterans secure employment following their separation from the military by providing employment services. However, these benefits are only available to veterans who:

  • Were not dishonorably discharged; and
  • Have a service-connected disability that is rated as at least 10% disabling. 

Veterans who fulfill these requirements will have access to:

  • An evaluation of their abilities, interests, and skills;
  • Job training and resume development;
  • Job search assistance;
  • On-the-job training, internships, and apprenticeships;
  • Post-secondary training; and
  • Case management, medical referrals, and counseling services.

Please call our veterans benefits attorneys Lake County today for help determining whether you qualify for vocational rehabilitation benefits or other VA employment services.

Readjustment Counseling

The VA also offers readjustment counseling to veterans and their families who are attempting to transition to civilian life. These services include group, family, and individual counseling, bereavement counseling, substance abuse assessments and referrals, outreach, and community education, military sexual trauma counseling, and medical benefit referrals. These programs and services are available to any veterans who served in an area of hostility, as well as to family members who experienced an active duty death and veterans suffering from sexual trauma or harassment. Readjustment services are offered free of cost and with no time limits. 

Disability Benefits

Veterans who suffer from service-connected disabilities may qualify for disability benefits, including:

    • A monthly disability compensation payment;
    • Housing grants;
    • Healthcare benefits;
    • Employment and education services; 
    • Pensions; and
    • Aid and attendance or housebound benefits. 

To qualify for these benefits, a veteran must have served in active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty for training capacity and sustained a service-connected injury or illness that has been rated as disabling by the VA.
