Why this Course is Unique


You may ask what makes our course unique from other CLE accreditation courses? Our training will give you what other courses do not – the background and reference material to answer any question on any disability claim you might encounter. The video above, hosted and narrated by Thomas Day, explains why this CLE Course will be valuable to you.

There is a lot of valuable information included in this training. Over 96 narrated slides provide a wealth of information on all veterans disability benefits and how to use VA's fully developed claim process to apply. This alone is well worth your cost and your time devoted to this continuing education experience. However, the 3 hours of video training is only a part of this course. The reference handbook you receive, How to Apply for VA Benefits for Senior Veterans and Their Survivors, along with the claim support data disk and the supplemental information, is the equivalent of a college course on veterans disability benefits and VA's fully developed claim process.

This CLE is based around the new fully developed claim process from the Department of Veterans Affairs which covers all disability benefits except Parents DIC. If you don't understand fully developed claims, you are doing a huge disservice to your clients. Fully developed claims result in timely decisions that are usually favorable. The standard claim process usually results in decisions that take months and even years and are often unfavorable. Thomas submitted a fully developed application for his own disability claim and had the benefit within three months of submitting the forms.
