After dealing with the VA over the last two years, I had lost all faith in the institution that was designed to take care of veterans. A fellow veteran told me about VET COMP and PEN and I decided to give them a call. From my very first conversation up until yesterday, I have been extremely impressed with their sincerity, professionalism, and promptness. The very impressive lady I spoke with yesterday provided me with more pertinent information than I received from my TAP (Transition Assistance Program). I spent over 25 years in the Navy and would do it again if I had the opportunity, I plan to tell as many other veterans about this company and the outstanding work they are doing for our country!
I'm very impressed with the way my claim was handle by this agency. My Military Medical Record was lost during the transitioning period from a closing Military Hospital to the retirement center. With just an affidavit from a former subordinate, this agency was able to obtain a 60% initial rating and is continuing work to increase the percentage for each area of disability noted in my application. I'm looking forward to the increase in percentages due to the outstanding efforts by this agency.
The turnaround time for my award increase was faster than I expected. I was expecting to hear something in 6 months to 1 year, but I received a VA Letter increase from 30 to 60 percent in about three months.
I first heard of Vet Comp & Pen in Jacksonville, Florida. A few years earlier I had given up in trying to obtain my comp/pension because it was so frustrating. Vet Comp & Pen gave me new hope in getting through the red tape and the legal and medical jargon. I received 50% service connection, tax free!! Since meeting Vet Comp & Pen, I've told every veteran I meet about the Vet Comp & Pen services. Their team is very sincere in making sure our vets get what is owed to them.
I just want to say that Vet Comp and Pen is the way to go. I have a friend who works at the VA to process claims and there's no comparison. Vet Comp and Pen runs circles around them. They go above and beyond and search to no end to present the best possible claim for you as if it were their own. I highly recommend this company and will continue to do business with them throughout the duration of any future claims or appeals.
I want to thank Vet Comp and Pen for everything that they have done for me. I had filed a claim before on my own, but it was denied. I was referred to Vet Comp & Pen from a friend. I received a 10% disability when I got out of the service back in 1994. Once Vet Comp and Pen reviewed my records, Vet Comp & Pen sent me my medical consulting package and had me re-file my claim that I had previously filed and had been denied. Within 3 months, my rating was at 50%, and I am still waiting on an appeal for 30% to be added. There is also a possibility that I can get back pay from when I first got out. Also when I thought that this was the last of my claims, I get a email from Vet Comp and Pen telling me that they are still working on developing more claims for me. Just think that all because of a caring company. I am now getting benefits that I deserve. I want to thank Vet Comp and Pen for all of their hard work. Thank you for caring Vet Comp & Pen.
It is my greatest pleasure to take this opportunity to recommend Vet Comp & Pen Medical Consulting to all Veterans to successfully prepare for their future engagement with the United States Department of Veteran Affairs. On August 26, 2014 attending the American Legion national convention in Charlotte, NC, I was offered a rare opportunity to candidly speak with President Barack Obama and Veterans Administration Secretary Robert McDonald about my expectations of the Veterans Administration. While proud of my quarter century of Active-Duty military service and nine combat deployments, sharing with them that I have neglected to properly take care of myself with frequent deployments since 9/11. I shared with them that I will be counting on the VA to provide everything that has been promised, no more and no less. I sincerely do believe that our Commander in Chief and VA Secretary are making herculean efforts to restore faith and deliver earned benefits to America’s Veterans alongside the tireless efforts of the many Veteran Support Organizations. As a result of this unique encounter with our national leadership, I decided to be proactive and research as much as I could on VA disability benefits BEFORE I DISCHARGE. After talking with dozens of soldiers who have transitioned before me, virtually ALL of them complained of countless struggles with the VA, wishing they had been better prepared. It quickly became clear that I would have to take on a very active role in order to have any hope of successfully engaging the VA on my disability claims. Over the past year and a half, I have researched countless non-profit and commercial veteran organizations, looking for a firm that could fully review my medical records to identify primary and secondary service connected conditions captured in my 1,000+ page military medical treatment records. My search led me to Vet Comp & Pen Medical Consulting. Uniquely qualified above all others to accomplish what should be automatically provided by the military, but is not. Since my alignment with Vet Comp & Pen, they have provided instant value to my overall health and medical file documentation. I didn't think I needed or wanted various Lab’s, X-rays, MRI’s, etc. that Vet Comp & Pen requested and, to my surprise, they all came back positive for medical conditions which I was previously unaware I had (and all are worth additional VA disability compensation). Bottom line, I owe it to my family and myself to ensure that this final mission has a successful ending and is done right the first time! I am recommending Vet Comp & Pen Medical Consultants without hesitation. If I can provide any additional insight or recommendations, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Working with the Vet Comp & Pen staff has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I would not have the percentage or compensation without their staff. Having the extra money has changed my family’s life. I can’t say thank you enough.
