Non-Service Connected Disability Claims

Obtaining Benefits for Disabilities Unrelated to Your Military Service

It doesn't matter how you became disabled or whether the availability of non-service connected disability benefits was something you considered before deciding to join the service or not — you don't have to struggle to survive financially just because you became disabled after you left the military.

The help is out there and we can help you get it.

If you are an Ohio resident and need to file a non-service connected disability claim with the VA, the law firm of Shifrin Newman Smith Inc. can help you make the strongest possible claim and obtain the results you deserve. To learn more, call 800-728-4127 or contact us online for a free consultation with one of our attorneys.

There's no risk and no reason not to call. If we don't obtain these non-service connected disability benefits on your behalf, you don't pay any attorney fees.

Am I Eligible for These Disability Benefits?

If you meet all of the following basic conditions listed below, you may be eligible for non-service connected disability pension benefits:

  • You were discharged from service under conditions other than dishonorable.
  • You served at least 90 days of active military service, at least one day of which was during a war time period. If you entered active duty after September 7, 1980, generally you must have served at least 24 months or the full period for which called or ordered to active duty (but there are exceptions to this rule).
  • Your countable family income is below a yearly limit set by law (the yearly limit on income is set by Congress).
  • You are age 65 or older, or, you are permanently and totally disabled, not due to your own willful misconduct.
