Todd Hammond is with you through the entire process finding ways to present your evidence to the agencies for prompt processing and decision making.
Thank you for your service and Welcome Home.
When you served our nation in the armed forces, you entered into an honored contract. Your military commitment to our country still entitles you to certain benefits should you become disabled as a result of your military service. Our Nation's Department of Veterans Affairs (formerly the VA or Veterans Administration) pays for your loss of health or earning ability with disability benefits in an effort to restore or make up for your sacrifice for the nation. This federal system of hospitals, claims offices and Vet Centers is intended to honor this contract with those who sacrificed for the Nation. When you apply for Veteran's disability benefits, the VA determines your degree of service connected disability and must grant the appropriate monthly amount you are to be paid for disability. Even if you are not service connected, you may still be eligible for a "pension" if you are disabled for non service-connected reasons if you served during a period of wartime - even if you did not actually serve in the combat zone.
