Beware of VA Claim Sharks

VA Claim Sharks

Have you been charged unnecessary fees to file a VA disability claim? The VFW reported in the June/July 2021 issue of the VFW magazine that predatory companies, referred to as “claim sharks,” coach veterans in filing VA disability claims with promises of increased ratings while charging them fees and taking a portion of their compensation. Veterans service organizations like the VFW have accredited service officers who provide claims assistance to veterans free of charge, as is the law. If you or someone you know has been charged unnecessary fees for VA claims assistance, please contact the VFW at vfwac@vfw.org, or contact your Post Service Officer. Alden Gilliland. (Note: We have published this info before, but VFW National has put the notice out once again this month. They want us all aware of the problem)
