In this episode, I covered several topics:
* If you are looking for a VA disability lawyer, instead of searching for “VA disability lawyers near me,” do THIS search instead.
* I’ll tell you about VA Form 21-2680, how and when to use it, and some key information that needs to be on the form if you have filed a claim for VA aid and attendance
* We will discuss the VA Aid and Attendance and Housebound additions to the base non-service connected pension benefit. (In the video, I warn about pension poachers, which you can read about here.)
* I’ll briefly talk about SMC-L (Special Monthly Compensation level L for VA aid and attendance and housebound additions to a 100% rating in a disability compensation claim)
Hiring an advocate – a VA disability lawyer, accredited agent or VSO representative – is Step 8 of my “8 Steps to Improving Your VA Claim or Appeal.” Learn the other steps in this post.

A word of caution as you watch this video: the older the video, the older the information. While some things in VA law never change, other things can change quicker than you think. I work hard to keep every post and video on this site up-to-date, but I’m only human.
