You are eligible for VA benefits in Youngstown, Ohio if you have a service-related disability. When you’ve served in the military, almost any injury or illness incurred in the line of duty is “service-related”. These injuries or conditions do not have to be related to combat duty or even other military duties, and certain physical or mental conditions are automatically presumed to be service-related: chronic diseases like hypertension, diabetes, and arthritis, as well as tropical diseases like malaria, dysentery, filariasis, and cholera. Neurological diseases like ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease also automatically qualify.

Many more physical and mental conditions are considered for former prisoners of war (POWs), and Vietnam veterans (1962-1975) diagnosed with conditions related to Agent Orange exposure also get special consideration.

Veterans with disabilities caused by exposure to ionizing radiation, and Gulf War veterans likely exposed to chemical warfare are also especially considered and expedited through the process.

Indeed, the VA has greatly streamlined the approval process for these above-named conditions.

The local Youngstown, Ohio VA office handles local claims on behalf of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and it is our goal to work on your behalf so that their office fully and fairly considers your claim.
