Episode 50: VA Disability for Neck Pain

Neck injuries are common among veterans, and VA looks to the General Rating Formula for Diseases and Injuries of the Spine to rate service-connected neck pain. In order to receive a grant of benefits for neck pain, veterans must prove that their condition is both chronic and a result of their military service (i.e., service-connected). In this episode of Veterans Legal Lowdown, the CCK team explains the details of VA disability benefits for neck pain. Tune in as we break down the rating schedule, as well as discuss TDIU for neck pain and secondary service connection for conditions stemming from neck pain. In addition, we will explain the impact of the 2018 Saunders decision.
