Proving the VA Service Connection for Various Disabilities

In any claim for disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the most important piece of the puzzle is proving the “service connection.”


To qualify for VA disability benefits, the veteran must prove that his or her current medical disability is connected to an injury, medical condition or event that occurred during military service.


In many cases, proving the service connection is the most difficult part of achieving a successful application for VA disability benefits.
