What Are Some Of The Common Misconceptions, Myths, And Rumors About VA Disability Ratings?

There are many misconceptions about veterans and what they can and cannot do after being rated for a disability. Myths like, "disabled veterans can't work," or "veterans with high disability ratings are stealing from others." Myths that exist in the veteran community need to be cleared up so that disabled veterans know their rights when it comes to employment. Disabled Veterans Act of 2017 has helped us understand how these myths affect our lives by providing education on the truth behind them.

There is no cap on the amount of money you can make if you have a disability rating. Disabled veterans are not stealing from anyone but themselves. They have earned these benefits so they should use them for their family and future.

A widespread misconception regarding disability is that it is caused by a lack of strength. This is the furthest thing from the truth. Disability can strike anyone, and it frequently occurs as a result of military service. Military veterans should be pleased to have served their nation, but they should also understand that they, like any other American citizen, are entitled to compensation for their disability or illness. Self-care and awareness of your rights enable you to live a more fulfilled life with less stress and anxiety!

We hope this post has helped clear up some of the misconceptions about disabled veteran employment. Our goal is to help shed some light on this topic and hopefully eliminate some of the stigmas that exist within the veteran community.

We want to ensure that you get the most out of your benefits without having to worry about misconceptions. Our Team is committed to assisting veterans with their VA claims in order to alleviate any further burden on top of what they have already done for our nation.
