Most veterans with mesothelioma are eligible for benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Two financial benefits available to veterans are: Disability Compensation, which is for veterans primarily exposed in the military; and Pension, which is for non-service-related mesothelioma cases. Family members and dependents can also receive financial assistance.
Mesothelioma Guide has a retired Navy veteran on staff who has decades of experience managing VA claims. LCDR Carl Jewett spent 24 years in the military and dedicates his professional career to helping veterans with mesothelioma. He can guide you or your loved one through the VA claims process and shorten the amount of time it takes to receive your benefits.
“In my mail today I received a letter from the VA with their decision about my DIC claim. I looked at the balance in my bank account and found that I have already received the payment for the first four months of back pay, plus the regular August 1 payment for July. I am blown away by this and cannot thank you enough, Carl, for all your help in filing this claim. Thank you.”
