PTSD Disability Claim & VA Compensation

If you have PTSD to the point that it is affecting your work, family, and quality of life, you
are entitled to compensation from the VA (Veterans Administration).  Some Veterans feel
like this means they're asking for a hand out.  Let me assure you, you're not!  Your
service only means you receive money every month, it also means you have access to
additional health services, vocational rehabilitation, discounts on home loans, and other
benefits only available to Veterans with a service-connected disability.  So, if you have
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as a result of your military service, you should strongly
consider filing a claim with the VA.

**Note, if PTSD has made you (or your Veteran) unable to work, you are also eligible for
Social Security Disability Benefits.**

Filing a claim for PTSD can be a little overwhelming.  Here are a few resources that may
help you find your way through the VA compensation maze!!
