VA hasn't given you what you deserve by law you're angry about some crappy compensation and pension examiners
00:03:03
you're tired of wasting all your time online okay and some of these worthless garbage Facebook groups some of these
00:03:11
attorneys are an absolute joke show okay I'm gonna call him a clown show I read their stuff okay
00:03:18
the attorneys don't know what they're talking about because VA disability claims come down
00:03:24
medical evidence okay what they want you to do is get denied and then they want you to appeal to the board right which
00:03:32
is gonna take three to five years so that they can collect a huge part of your back pay okay here's another dirty
00:03:40
little secret they seem to think that helping you file a tdiu IU or a secondary disability claim doesn't
00:03:49
constitute a new claim right so they're collecting on that in addition to their collecting pre-filing consultation fees
00:03:58
just to even talk to you right some of them are it's absolutely wrong it's ridiculous you do not need an attorney
00:04:07
okay you can do this yourself veterans that's what we help you do we teach you how to prepare and file your own

00:04:50
denied why was it denied oh I couldn't prove the Nexxus on it at least as likely as that basis okay oh wait a
00:04:58
minute I guess I didn't properly explain to the compensation and pension examiner my symptoms the severity of what I'm
00:05:08

00:05:41
Bennett's Flo's bonus by the way you do not have to join our programs I would love for you to if you believe what we
00:05:48
believe if you're stuck frustrated and underrated but you don't have to take advantage of our free resources we're
00:05:56
writing about two blog posts per week which is epic if you go to va claims insider comm slash blog okay I've got
00:06:05
some other free high-value resources across the top of the menu bar which I'm gonna show you in a minute quick
00:06:10
disclaimer I am NOT an accredited VSO I'm not an accredited claims agent I'm not an accredited attorney we are not
00:06:19
any entity recognized by the Department of Veterans Affairs I'm not affiliated with the VA in any way shape or form
00:06:29
okay we offer education based membership programs we offer educational content across our web sites across our blog
00:06:39
okay this video if we start to talk about certain things medical issues if I answer some of your questions if we talk
00:06:47
about some of the legalities okay this video is not a substitute and shall not be substituted for the medical advice
00:06:55
from a doctor or a health care provider or the legal advice of a VA accredited attorney
00:07:01
okay please also do not construe any part of this video in whole or in part as legal tax investment financial or
00:07:09
other advice okay now the reason I added that third disclaimer today is because we're talking about some top VA benefits
00:07:16
across the Department of Veterans Affairs that might include VA home loans might include some of the investment
00:07:23
stuff with the veterans benefits banking program okay please don't construe that as any type of certified financial
00:07:30
planning or advice okay alright so let's talk real quick about the basic eligibility for VA disability benefits
00:07:39
and it makes me so angry when I see how people wrongly explain the three things that you really need okay and so you
00:07:50
know there's people who have five things you need to prove people that's the two things you need proof there's three
00:07:55
things gang there's three things and this is what they are okay if you believe you deserve VA disability
00:08:04
benefits by law these are the three things you have to prove in every single disability compensation claim number one
00:08:13
you have to have a medical diagnosis of a disability or condition in a medical record okay now there's this uh
00:08:22
misconception out there that you need to have a diagnosis in your active duty service treatment records okay which are
00:08:30
your medical records from when you wear the uniform that is not true okay you can have a medical diagnosis and any
00:08:38
type of medical record can be on service treatment records it could be on current VA rec medical records if especially if
00:08:46
you're seeking treatment at a VA facility okay the Veterans Health Administration
00:08:51
offers health care treatment and benefits for veterans or you can also have that medical diagnosis on any
00:08:59
private records okay so maybe you're taking advantage of the mission Act and you have a referral to private health
00:09:07
care providers that have nothing to do with the VA all right or DoD maybe you're working for an employer who
00:09:14
offers private insurance and you've got a private primary care doctor okay or something like that the bottom line
00:09:21
though is you have to have a medical diagnosis somewhere on a medical record if you don't guess what's gonna happen
00:09:30
the VA Raider is gonna look at your records and go oh I see he's talking about migraine headaches they see he
00:09:37
says he has irritable bowel syndrome I see she says she's got post-traumatic stress disorder
00:09:44
but I can't find a diagnosis okay they aren't even gonna go on past one unless you have a diagnosis so my advice here
00:09:52
is if you think you have a disability condition get your butt to the doctor okay get your butt to the doctor and
00:10:01
tell them everything going on with you okay now if you do have a medical diagnosis for that condition migraines
00:10:09
IBS GERD gastroesophageal reflux disease plantar fasciitis lumbar strain radiculopathy okay if you have it
00:10:17
diagnosed then here comes part two which is what's legally referred to as the Nexus now a nexus guy simply means a
00:10:28
logical link or a connection that's all it means it's a fancy way of saying connection in order to be eligible for
00:10:37
disability benefits under the law the disability or condition that's diagnosed in part one must have been caused or
00:10:45
made worse by your active duty military service or by another service-connected disability if you're filing for
00:10:53
secondary service connection now when you log into va.gov all right which by the way is way better and way more
00:11:01
intuitive than ebenefits when you add a new condition or you're filing for an increase or you're adding a condition
00:11:10
secondary to something already service-connected there's actually a block in there now there's there's radio
00:11:17
buttons where you have to tell the VA what type of service connection you're seeking and it actually tells you in
00:11:25
plain English like I'm seeking direct service connection for something that occurred on active duty I'm seeking
00:11:32
secondary service connection for something that resulted as a as a result of a current service-connected
00:11:40
disability now the part I laughed at is the example that they use on Feig of is our example it's our example they're
00:11:49
talking about right side body left side body issues are orthopedic conditions affect other parts of your body
00:11:54
you're welcome ba you welcome I gave that one to you I'm glad you're listening okay all right
00:12:02
so that nexus piece though is absolutely crucial now if you've ever logged into va.gov if you've ever been into
00:12:09
ebenefits if you've ever received your VA benefits summary letter okay you've ever received your here's your VA award
00:12:17
letter and you see things that say denied not service-connected that's what that means is that you failed to prove
00:12:27
the Nexus requirement on and at least is likely as not basis that's an incredibly low standard by the way in a criminal
00:12:38
case the standard of proof okay is I'm sorry I see people jumping in there like boom
00:12:46
seriously yeah it's serious the standard of proof in a criminal case is beyond a reasonable doubt okay that's a very very
00:12:54
high standard of proof and it should be okay if you're gonna try somebody in a criminal court you're maybe going to
00:13:01
send them to jail you better be sure okay so in the United States it's beyond a reasonable doubt
00:13:08
for criminal if it's a civil case okay meaning it's not criminal something's tried in a civil court okay
00:13:17
civil law the standard is preponderance of the evidence which in Va speak means more likely than not
00:13:26
okay preponderance of the evidence means there's a greater than 50% chance okay now that's for a civil case va
00:13:35
disability benefits in law is completely different the standard of proof is at least as likely as not meaning all
00:13:45
things being equal 50/50 okay it's not greater than 50 it's not less than 50 there's a 50/50 chance that's what at
00:13:56
least as likely as not means now our great v creators compensation pension examiners seem to have forgotten that
00:14:05
the benefit of the doubt always goes to the veteran the benefit of the doubt doesn't go to
00:14:13
the government the benefit of the doubt doesn't lean toward the VA the benefit of the doubt doesn't lean to the
00:14:19
compensation and pension examiner it leans to the veteran when the evidence is in equipoise there's an approximate
00:14:28
even balance of fifty-fifty just like in baseball the tie goes to the runner okay
00:14:36
the tie goes to the veteran okay at least as likely as not is an incredibly low standard to proof now if your
00:14:47
disability has been previously denied before and said not service-connected it's probably because you either didn't
00:14:56
have a medical diagnosis or you failed to prove with medical evidence that the disability or condition you suffer from
00:15:04
was at least as likely as not due to your active service or due to another service-connected disability or due to a
00:15:12
presumptive disability if it's on that list okay you probably need to get something called a medical Nexus letter
00:15:20
okay a medical Nexus letter can be completed by any private health care provider okay any licensed private
00:15:30
health care provider a nurse practitioner a certified physician's assistant a medical doctor an orthopedic
00:15:37
surgeon a specialist and a nexus letter simply explains through medical ideology okay through medical research the
00:15:50
likelihood that the disagree condition you're suffering from today was due to your service or due to another
00:15:55
service-connected disability and what veterans seem to forget is that the link has to show medical connections okay if
00:16:05
you're talking about secondary service connection the third standard under the law is actually described by the courts
00:16:15
as medical Nexus evidence okay that's what pickled Nexus letter will let you do now
00:16:24
if you can't get one from your own private doctor or he or she doesn't know what they're talking about they have no
00:16:31
idea how to format it or write one okay that's what we do that's what we can help you do okay you'll see a link at
00:16:41
the bottom I see a bunch of team members on WWV a claims insider elite comm we are a membership based education and
00:16:52
training program okay which also gets you discounted access to private medical providers in our referral network
00:17:03
now just to be clear they don't work for me they're not my employees they are not influenced by us in any way okay and
00:17:12
they shall not be influenced by you in any way they are independent for a reason that's the reason gang that it's
00:17:20
called an independent medical opinion I am oh okay a medical Nexus opinion a medical Nexus letter an independent
00:17:29
medical opinion they're synonymous they all mean the same thing okay but you probably need one probably need an
00:17:38
independent medical opinion to try to get your disabilities service-connected okay that's number two and then the
00:17:44
third part if you have a medical condition diagnosed if you can prove the nexus on an at least as likely as not
00:17:51
basis for service connection then it comes down to part three do you have persistent and reoccurring
00:17:59
symptoms of the disability into the present day that are somehow limiting or affecting your life typically the
00:18:07
limitation derives from economic limitation meaning economic loss because of your disabilities that's ultimately
00:18:15
what you're being compensated for okay by the government for your disabilities that caused economic loss okay that's
00:18:25
why you're paid compensation okay now a not a lot of vets seem to forget also that under the law the VA is looking for
00:18:35
frequency severity and duration okay I'm gonna say that again I talked about this in numerous blog posts persistent or
00:18:45
recurrent symptoms of the disability of the present day if you're not seeking treatment if you've got no history of
00:18:51
this stuff okay your disabilities there's no medical evidence that shows frequency severity or duration
00:19:00
you're likely either gonna get denied or you're gonna get underrated okay because there's just not enough in there to help
00:19:08
the VA rate or make a decision as to how severe your condition is ultimately number three affects your rating okay
00:19:18
number one doesn't affect the rating yeah you got to have a medical diagnosis number two the Nexus doesn't affect the
00:19:26
rating okay there's no more clear of a nexus that results in a higher rating it's either service-connected or it's
00:19:32
not number three is what determines the percentage for that condition okay and I recommend all veterans arm yourself with
00:19:42
information by going to see if our thirty-eight part for the schedule for rating disabilities you can google it
00:19:48
when we're done it's the governing law that guides all conditions that are eligible for
00:19:54
disability compensation okay all right hopefully that made sense does that that's probably the most thorough
00:20:03

00:25:08
detail today I'm gonna highlight the screen so hopefully you can see them okay va disability compensation pay I
00:25:16
want to talk about first if you're suffering from any disease in service medical condition you've got a diagnosis
00:25:24
something that happened while you served you're eligible for VA disability compensation pay which is a tax free
00:25:31
benefit it's tax free at the state level and it's also tax free at the federal level now one of the things you might
00:25:38
want to do okay you can prepare and file your own va disability compensation claim for free by opening what's called
00:25:47
a notice of intent to file on the va.gov website okay now it's the system isn't set up right you can actually file a
00:25:57
first-time claim you can file an increase claim all right can file secondary claims right on the VA gov
00:26:04
website okay you don't need to use ebenefits anymore a benefits is a buggy disaster to say the least
00:26:11
okay now as soon as you start saying yes I want to file a claim it's gonna automatically open what's called an
00:26:21
intent to file okay which means that you're putting the VA on notice you're telling them hey I'm I'm gonna file a
00:26:28
claim I'm just building it now what that does is it allows you to set your filing date so that if and when in the future
00:26:38
whether it's one month six months nine months they finally make a decision you're gonna get paid back to
00:26:46
the date of your notice of intent to file okay which is crucial all right now I've also got compensation pay rates is
00:26:53
there as well all right let's talk about number 225 SMC benefits special monthly compensation SMC benefits are in
00:27:02
addition to any va disability compensation pay that you are getting okay VA SMC by the way you're eligible
00:27:11
to be paid a higher rate due to some special circumstance okay the Aid and Attendance program of another person
00:27:20
that's a pension benefit but it's technically a form of special monthly compensation okay the loss or use of a
00:27:28
creative organ a creative organ meaning what you use to make babies okay if you've got a reptile dysfunction that's
00:27:36
alright we know it's a creative organ that's affected you're eligible to receive a higher rate of pay that isn't
00:27:45
listed under the general schedule okay and the same is true for women there's female sexual wiles a disorder there's
00:27:52
all kinds of SMC type benefits right if you're blind if you've lost a limb amputation there's all kinds of things

Veterans Benefits banking program this is brand spankin new it's only been out for a few months what this means is that
00:28:30
you as a disabled veteran or your beneficiaries can use something called the veterans benefits banking program to
00:28:37
open up direct deposit financial institution accounts to help you okay now the entire purpose here is there's a
00:28:46
lot of disabled veterans especially elderly disabled veterans who are still receiving their month
00:28:53
disability compensation pay be a check meaning an actual physical check is mailed to you what the VBB program is is
00:29:02
trying to do is to get you to open up an account with eligible participating banks so you can do stuff direct deposit
00:29:12
so instead of waiting for your check it can get there instantly or sometimes a couple days earlier okay
00:29:20

that you're actually eligible to receive VA travel pay reimbursements okay in 2020 it's forty one and a half cents per
00:30:26
mile for approved health related travel so if you're seeking treatment for your conditions

00:31:07
residents only okay now what this means is if you have a certain disability rating in your state and we got a whole
00:31:15

I mean good law in the state of Texas this is worth five to twelve and a half thousand dollars per year if you're a
00:31:43
disabled veteran at a certain rate okay absolutely epic how many of you knew that if you have a service-connected
00:31:51
building rating of ten percent or higher you're completely exempt from the VA home loan funding fee okay
00:31:59
this can save you a few grand so I have an example here so let's say you're a 30 percent disabled veteran you're a
00:32:08
first-time homebuyer and you purchase a three hundred thousand dollar home okay and you make a five percent down payment
00:32:14
you don't know technically with the VA loan you don't have to make any down payment well let's say you do okay
00:32:20
$300,000 home you put down 15 grand alright which is five percent of that $300,000 home loan if you're not at
00:32:31
least 10 percent or higher you're gonna pay in this example about forty seven
00:32:36
hundred dollars in the VA funding fee but if you're 10 percent or higher uo0 okay now I've got a link here as well
00:32:48
you can check the eligibility requirements okay voc rehab alright it's actually called the VR any program but
00:32:57
most vets just call it voc rehab for chapter 35 benefits now what this is is that the programs created it's designed
00:33:05
to help veterans with service-connected abilities to get employment or achieve some type of independence suitable
00:33:12
living okay now there's an application for this there's a full list of voc rehab coordinators that we've posted on
00:33:21
this blog post and you can get in touch also you can either contact the voc rehab coordinators or you can reach out
00:33:28
to the VA regional office in your state to check eligibility okay you're also eligible most vets already know this you
00:33:38
can get VA disability compensation for your dependents okay now if you have a zero percent rating at ten percent rated
00:33:44
twenty percent rating you're not eligible you have to have a minimum va disability rating of thirty percent or
00:33:50
higher okay to get monthly additional monthly compensation from your dependents you for your dependents you
00:33:57
can add and remove dependents at any time by the way on either ebenefits or va.gov there's a self verification
00:34:05
process okay so if you've got kiddos maybe your divorce but got newly married maybe you are married add your
00:34:14
dependents you're gonna get mo money okay all right I'm gonna talk about C RDP
00:34:20
real quick so if anybody listening is a retired active-duty military member okay retired active-duty military member
00:34:29
you're eligible through something called the concurrent retirement and disability pay program C RDP to be paid both
00:34:38
military retired pay and VA disability compensation pay and instead of there being an offset okay if you're 50
00:34:48
percent or higher from the VA you get both alright now there's some specific D fast requirements there I've
00:34:55
got a link as well VA t Diu it's sometimes called total disability individual unemployability sometimes
00:35:03
called unemployability sometimes called individual unemployability it all means the same thing now what this means is
00:35:10
you can get paid at the hundred percent rate even if you're not actually a hundred percent scheduler okay so maybe
00:35:20
you're at 70 percent or thirty percent but those service can't disabilities make it nearly impossible or impossible
00:35:30
for you to maintain substantially gainful employment okay you can file for tdiu benefits and be paid at the hundred
00:35:41
percent rate even if you're only rated at ten percent thirty percent seventy percent now there's a whole thing here
00:35:52
in this other post that I have linked talking about substantially gainful employment I highly recommend you take a
00:35:59
look at that in detail before you go jump at this one okay now I'm going to combine DEA benefits and special
00:36:08
