Last Thursday, the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) continued our monthly Twitter town hall series with an event focused on VA disability compensation exams (you can find more information about eligibility requirements for disability compensation here). Many Veterans may be confused about the process and why a disability exam may be required when a Veteran has already been receiving treatment for a given condition or injury.
Many Veterans who couldn’t participate in our Twitter town hall might have the same questions we addressed during our session. Below, you can check out a recap of our discussion which may answer some of your own questions.
Be sure to follow us on Twitter as well, if you don’t already.
