Publisher's Summary

Although the rules governing VA disability benefits and the VA disability ratings process often seem unfairly stacked against you, the purpose of this audiobook is to educate you on what is needed and how to properly prepare the nexus letter of your veterans benefits claim so you can level the playing field and win your VA disability benefits claim!  

As you know, in order to be successful with your VA disability benefits claim, you must meet three specific criteria:

  • You must have a current, chronic disability;
  • The disability must have been caused by, the result of, or aggravated by your military service or a secondary condition that was caused by an existing service-connected disability; 
  • There must be a nexus or link between the first two criteria.  

This audiobook explains the goals and anatomy of a nexus letter, addresses potential concerns doctors might have in writing the nexus letter, and demonstrates how to craft a compelling nexus letter the VA can’t deny. As an added bonus, this audiobook will also show you how to locate missing records and utilize creative ways to find information in support of an incomplete claim.  

My name is Rick Blair, and I served nearly 27 years in the US Air Force and then another 10 years in my “second career” as a veterans service officer (VSO.) Now, for my third and hopefully final “career”, I plan on taking it easy and writing books to continue my advocacy for veterans because the knowledge I gained during those 10 years as a VSO, I believe, is far too important not to continuing sharing with other disabled veterans.

As a VSO, I spent four years advocating for veterans' benefits at the St. Petersburg VA Regional Office, another four and a half years working with patients at the James H. Haley VA Medical Center in Tampa, and then the last year and a half providing community-based advocacy for our veterans in and around Sumter County, Florida.

Excellent Book

As a veteran and knowing how hard it can be to deal and get the VA to approve a claim, this book is packed with helpful hints and information that can help in the gathering of the information you need to have. Rick is not kidding when he says to email him or call for additional help, he actually responds!! Thanks for all the help

Great to have on Audible

I've yet to file my FDC claim because I really need to get this right the first time. Through weeks of constant research it has made me very aware that you must know what the VA will except and what they won't except. Thanks to the Authors I have a little more ammunition for this up coming battle with the VA for my Disability Benefits. The Narrator was excellent. Thanks again I highly recommend vets that are doing there own research read this book. I'm sure there is something in it that you don't know and you will wish you hadda known.

VA Insider Information

For the past year-and-a-half, I have been scouring the VA website to figure out how to increase my VA benefits compensation for condition(s) that are chronic and debilitating. I found some answers from other sources online, but nothing that really explained how to craft a compelling nexus or link between the primary and secondary conditions. And then, I found VA DISABILITY CLAIM APPROVED! This is the information I was seeking that I couldn't find anywhere else. Rick has shared his knowledge of the VA process from his 10 years as a Veterans Service Officer (VSO). I wish I had access to this information earlier because it would have saved a lot of time and effort. Thank you for sharing this information, Rick, and THANK YOU for your service!
