Episode 49: Tips for Your VA Buddy Letter
Join CCK attorneys Rachel Foster, Nick Briggs, and Courtney Ross as they discuss the importance of VA buddy letters in this week’s episode of Veterans Legal Lowdown. A buddy letter, or lay statement, can play a vital role in a veteran’s claim for disability benefits. A buddy letter may describe how the physical and/or mental impacts of an injury are affecting the life of the veteran or provide details on a specific event or injury that led to their disability. We will clarify the purpose of buddy letters, the details they should include, and who is eligible to write them. Additionally, we will talk about how to submit a buddy letter, explain what to do if your letter is rejected, and share our tips for writing a compelling buddy letter.
