Roger, a Navy Veteran, was discharged six years ago with a 10% VA disability rating for tinnitus. Over time, he developed severe knee and back pain, recurring migraine headaches, and sleep apnea. Despite his worsening conditions, Roger felt some discouragement from his Veteran Service Officer (VSO) in seeking a new claim and re-evaluation. Feeling unsure and undervalued, he stumbled upon an online advertisement for United Veteran Benefits Agency (UVBA) and decided to schedule a consultation for a second opinion.
Roger faced several obstacles in seeking a rating increase. The discouragement he felt and his confusion with the Veterans Administration's complexities left him feeling helpless and uncertain about navigating the claim process effectively. He lacked confidence in communicating the severity of his service-connected disabilities.
