MyVaBenefits is designed to help maximize the amount of disability money you and your family receive for your injuries when you retire or separate from the military.
Wounded Warriors, this app is for you. It will help you receive more money every month from the VA for your injuries.
This app is not just a calculator, it will tell you what information you need to provide (based on your selected injuries/diagnoses) and allow you to document and save the information in order to receive compensation for your injuries and illnesses. It allows you to document your injuries, symptoms, doctor visits, episodes and medications. It helps you save and organize the information in a secure encrypted database. When you are ready for your VA interview, email all of your injuries with your documentation to yourself or the VA. If you don't provide documentation to the VA, you may not receive the full compensation for your injuries or illnesses. It works completely offline, without an internet connection.
The VA will rely on YOU to provide them with all of the medical information that is pertinent to the injury you are claiming. They cannot not look through your medical records for you.
** Active duty personnel - Download it before you deploy!
** Use it to track injuries, and care given for you or your battle buddy. Everything in the app is self contained so it works when you are not connected to the internet.
** Veterans - My VA Benefits tells you how get a copy of your medical records from the Department of Defense (DoD) and the VA. It also helps you request your medical records using the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA).
** If you cannot find your diagnosis, let us know and we will research if for you by creating an account: http://myvabenefits.us/index.php/component/users/?view=registration and submitting the question to our forum: http://myvabenefits.us/index.php/forum/index
** We provide free updates for the app with the latest codes and rate tables when the VA releases them.
** For Back injuries see code 5320 or search for "spine".

Examinations will be conducted without the use of hearing aids."

Ratings and Reviews
Don’t waste your time or money
App is outdated and most disability codes do not exist along with the descriptions. Even the easy ones cannot be found. Stop taking veterans money people on something that could’ve be made much better and it’s so simple. Shame on you guys. Give it for free for what you get.
Awesome App/100% permanent on 1st try
I started using this app about 2 years before retirement. It works great. Some thing I never even realized I could get rated for. It helps you plan effectively. I had urinary incontinence and didn’t even know it. Many conditions are caused by stress. Since military folks are constantly put under stress, there are many conditions rated that may not make since to you at first.
It’s time to stop being so tough, stop sucking it up, and get yourself checked out.

Thank you for your feedback! Most of the users who like it, forget to leave feedback.
Not worth the $$$ Read Reviews First
Not worth the $$$. I have 16 rated conditions, the app only has 5 of them in the “database”...sort of. App should be free, they clearly do not use the money for updates of their app. What a waste! Refund would be appreciated, but not holding my breath!

Hi, we apologize you could not find the conditions you were looking for. We use the VA's official list and understand that some of thier medical terms may not have plain english equivalents. If you provide us with some of the conditions you could not find, we will make sure they are in the list and easily searchable.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
