MyVaBenefits is designed to help maximize the amount of disability money you and your family receive for your injuries when you retire or separate from the military.
Wounded Warriors, this app is for you. It will help you receive more money every month from the VA for your injuries.
This app is not just a calculator, it knows what information you need to provide to receive compensation for your injuries and illnesses such as: diagnoses, symptoms, doctor visits, episodes and medications. It helps you document and organize the information in a secure encrypted database. When you are ready for your VA interview, email all of your injuries with your documentation to yourself or the VA. If you don’t provide documentation to the VA, you will not be able to receive benefits for your injuries or illnesses. It also works completely offline, without an internet connection.
The VA will rely on YOU to provide them with all of the medical information that is pertinent to the injury you are claiming. They cannot not look through your medical records for you.
** Active duty personnel – Download it before you deploy!
** Use it to track injuries, and care given for you or your battle buddy. Everything in the app is self contained so it works when you are not connected to the internet.
** Veterans – My VA Benefits tells you how get a copy of your medical records from the Department of Defense (DoD) and the VA. It also helps you request your medical records using the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA).
** If you cannot find your diagnosis, let us know and we will research if for you by creating an account: http://myvabenefits.us/index.php/component/users/?view=registration and submitting the question to our forum: http://myvabenefits.us/index.php/forum/index
** We provide free updates for the app with the latest codes and rate tables when the VA releases them.
** For Back injuries see code 5320 or search for “spine”.
** For Hearing loss, you cannot self-diagnose because “An examination for hearing impairment for VA purposes must be conducted by a state-licensed audiologist and must include a controlled speech discrimination test (Maryland CNC) and a puretone audiometry test. Examinations will be conducted without the use of hearing aids.”
