Filing a claim with Veterans Affairs should not be a challenge, however, many veterans have found it to be a difficult process. To have a VA claim approved, you need to prove you have a current disability causing functional limitations and that there is a connection between that condition and an in-service event or another service-connected condition. A veterans disability advocate can help you get a claim approved.
