PTSD, Dogs, the “Backlog” . . . and Free Review of VA Claims File

Today’s veteran-related news includes a Hartford Courant article about the backlog of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability compensation claims at the Hartford Regional Office, and an article about a Guardians of Rescue program that tries pair shelter dogs up with veterans suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The VA claims backlog and PTSD are issues that the veterans benefits section at Fink Rosner Ershow-Levenberg deals with on an almost daily basis.  Because of the length of time it takes for a claim to be adjudicated by the VA, I commonly receive calls from veterans uncertain of the status of their VA disability compensation or pension claim.  Fink Rosner Ershow-Levenberg has made a long-term commitment to assisting veterans and we offer a free review and consultation of any veteran’s VA claim.

Even prior to formal representation before the Department of Veterans Affairs, I am able to obtain a copy of the entirety of a veteran’s VA claims file through the submission of a VA Form 3288.  The VA claims file (C-File) is critical for analyzing whether there were errors during the VA adjudication process and/or entitlements that a veteran is not otherwise receiving.

Therefore, if you received an unfavorable Rating Decision or are confused about the status of your VA disability compensation or pension claim, please do not hesitate to contact me for a free consultation at sdirector@finkrosner.com or (732) 382-6070.
