Disability ratings can provide you with monthly benefits and allow waiver of certain fees for your mortgage. Increasing a 0% rating to a 10% rating gives you the waiver of the VA funding fee on your mortgage. It is worth it to allow us to review your disability decision and determine if it is time to request an increase.

The disability ratings range from 0% to 100%. The ratings are in increments of 10, such as 10%, 20% and so forth up to 100%.
With the 0% rating, the VA acknowledges that the Veteran’s disability is service connected, but nothing will be paid to the disabled Veteran because the VA has determined that the disability is not so severe that the veteran is entitled to monetary benefits. This is called a non-compensable 0% rating.
A client of ours, a veteran, is currently disabled with service connected PTSD.
As a result of the PTSD, he is depressed, and is inactive.
The inactivity caused our client to become obese and develop diabetes.
Mr. Mattson found his niche in family law and has focused his practice in that area since 2000. In particular, Luke often handles matters involving divorce, timesharing, parenting plans, child support, alimony, paternity, and civil domestic violence.
Mr. Mattson might look like he’s all business, but you'd be surprised to discover the incredible fun loving attitude he brings to the practice. When outside the courtroom, Mr. Mattson can often be found watching Lightning games or riding his bike around downtown Tampa.

Frequently Asked Questions
What disability rating am I entitled to?
This depends on the conditions you are claiming and the medical records.
How long do I have to serve to be eligible for VA benefits?
As long as you served a day and received any thing other than a dishonorable discharge you have met the first criteria of eligibility.
Does the disability have to have happened during my service?
This is not a requirement. There are numerous factors that determine if the disability is ratable and service connected.
