Why Might I Need a Buddy Statement for My VA Disability Claim?

Injuries that occur during your service in the military can impact your ability to function for the rest of your life. You may have decided to file an application for veterans disability compensation for your service-related injury. However, you may find that your medical records are missing, incomplete, or do not properly document your injuries or the incidents that relate to your impairments. "Buddy Statements" can be an excellent way to verify and provide support to your disability claim.

Veterans Groups Criticize Proposed VA Budget

VeteransLawGroup adamantly opposes the restriction affecting veterans eligible for the VA's Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefit.

This cut is the largest offset in the bill and affects disabled veterans in need of the most financial support.

What is a Nexus Letter and How Do I Get One?

If you are a veteran of the U.S. Armed Forces and have a current injury or condition that is connected to that service, you may be eligible for disability compensation.

If your service or medical records are incomplete or do not demonstrate the connection between your impairment and your service, you can choose to submit additional materials to support your veterans disability claim. While your Veterans Service Officer (VSO) can help you determine what information you should submit, one of the most common supporting materials is a “nexus” letter.
