About Veteran Benefits Guide
VBG was founded by former United States Marine, Joshua Smith. Josh was employed by the Veteran Benefits Administration (VA) as a Rating Veteran Service Representative (Rater). While working in this capacity Josh was thoroughly trained on the VA’s Disability Compensation System. During his tenure at the VA he discovered many inefficiencies in the way Veterans disability ratings were evaluated. He witnessed firsthand how the VA’s method of deciding Veterans’ disability ratings was heavily flawed and designed a system to address those deficiencies. Recognizing the need to provide Veterans a better option for processing their VA disability claims, Josh set out to create a means to expedite them through the VA claim process while also obtaining the benefits Veterans deserve. Years later, VBG has successfully guided over 30,000 Veterans with submitting their VA disability claims, resulting in substantially increased compensation benefits for their disabilities which are related to active duty service.
