VA disability benefits are awarded on a percentage rating level of disability. The VA has a “Rating Schedule” that determines the percentage awarded per the type of disability. Disability compensation ranges from 0% to 100%. Veterans with spouse or children “dependents” receive larger monthly compensation, and multiple ratings are totaled into a “Combined Rating”.
It depends on your current percentage.
We don’t accept every claim. We only accept claims that will most likely yield a return to our client.
If your claim is accepted by our firm we require a $500 retainer fee for our services. It’s a flat rate. It’s a huge saving as we customize each case and spend about 2-4 hours prepping the case and also the client.
Once you have earned an increase, we require a flat rate performance fee if rated less than 30% of $2,500 upon increase to less than 90% or $5,000 if increased to 100%.
If rated 30% or more that case carries 5 times the difference in monthly payments. How do we calculate your final payment if rated 30% or more? See the example below.
New VA Percentage and pay: 80% at $1,657.80
Subtract Old VA Percentage and pay: 30% at $435.69
The difference equates to $1222.11
Multiplied by 5
Equates to $6,110.55
Payable over 10 months equates to $611.06 per month.
The final payment (performance fee) is not due until you receive an increase. If the dollar amount is greater than $5,000 we offer an optional 10-month interest fee payment structure.
