Although the rules governing VA disability benefits and the VA disability ratings process often seem unfairly stacked against you, the purpose of this audiobook is to educate you on what is needed and how to properly prepare the nexus letter of your veterans benefits claim so you can level the playing field and win your VA disability benefits claim!
As you know, in order to be successful with your VA disability benefits claim, you must meet three specific criteria:
You must have a current, chronic disability;
The disability must have been caused by, the result of, or aggravated by your military service or a secondary condition that was caused by an existing service-connected disability;
There must be a nexus or link between the first two criteria.
This audiobook explains the goals and anatomy of a nexus letter, addresses potential concerns doctors might have in writing the nexus letter, and demonstrates how to craft a compelling nexus letter the VA can’t deny. As an added bonus, this audiobook will also show you how to locate missing records and utilize creative ways to find information in support of an incomplete claim.
My name is Rick Blair, and I served nearly 27 years in the US Air Force and then another 10 years in my “second career” as a veterans service officer (VSO.) Now, for my third and hopefully final “career”, I plan on taking it easy and writing books to continue my advocacy for veterans because the knowledge I gained during those 10 years as a VSO, I believe, is far too important not to continuing sharing with other disabled veterans.
As a VSO, I spent four years advocating for veterans' benefits at the St. Petersburg VA Regional Office, another four and a half years working with patients at the James H. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa, and then the last year and a half providing community-based advocacy for our veterans in and around Sumter County, Florida.
Great for understanding nexus and why it’s so important. Great examples used as well
