What Are The Most Common Disabilities That Veterans Claim?
Ankles, Asthma, Back, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome, Diabetes, Elbows, Feet, GERD, Headaches, Heart, Hemorrhoids, Hips, IBS, Knees, Mental Health, Neck, Neuropathy, Radiculopathy, Sinusitis, Scars, Shoulders, Skin Conditions, and Sleep Apnea.
These are the most often seen disabilities among veterans upon separation from the military, and we recommend that every veteran consider claiming all of them for two primary reasons.
1) Many veterans are denied service connection for conditions that are documented in their medical records, but are later granted service connection for conditions for which they had no medical records. Therefore, hedge your bets and make as many claims as possible!
2) Each of these disabilities carries a rating (AKA compensation!) This is a fairly prevalent misconception among veterans - they believe that each disability is worth something, but this is not the case. The VA assigns ratings to just specific disabilities, while others remain at 0%.
Finally, we recommend claiming these because they are simple to service connect and are all things that we can assist in increasing later down the road! As a result, we strongly advise you to claim these conditions, as you never know what the VA will determine. We look forward to aiding you on your disability journey and are always available to answer any questions!
