Jacksonville Veterans Disability Services (JVDS) is a Fee For Services Firm. We strive to be as transparent as possible with our costs.
JVDS is a Fee-for-Services firm representing Veterans denied service-connected benefits for injuries and illnesses caused or aggravated by their service. There is no out of pocket cost to the Veteran all fees are contingent on the successful adjudication of your service-connected disability claim. Upon successfully recovering past-due benefits, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will deduct 20% from your final award as payment to JVDS for services rendered.
You Only Pay Your VA Disability Claims Agent If We Win:
No Recovery, No Fee: You only pay Jacksonville Veterans Disability Services (JVDS) if we successfully adjudicated your denied claim. If you do not obtain an increase in Veterans Disability Benefits; you don’t owe JVDS a penny.
Our Fee is 20% of the amount we recover. Some VA disability lawyers do charge more. Your fee will come straight from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to the agent. You won’t have to pay your fee directly out-of-pocket unless the VA fails to withhold the proper fee.
Other Fees: Sometimes we must hire experts to win clients’ VA disability claims. Those fees are only paid if your claim is successful. Usually, the reports needed by experts don’t cost that much and we always get the client’s permission before any case expenses are added to your case. Other examples of possible expenses are if we have to travel for a hearing and if we have to do heavy printing and faxing for your case. If your claim is not successful, you do not have to repay a penny of your case expenses.
In order to represent you in your claim, the two forms below need to be fully completed and returned by email or fax. After they are signed by the agent and returned to the VA it will take about two weeks for the VA to grant the agent access to your records electronically. At this point your agent will be able to file claims on your behalf. We look forward to working with you!
