Lou Gehrig's Disease

Veterans of the military — regardless of when they served, where they served, or how long they served — are twice as likely to be diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (“Lou Gehrig’s Disease”) when compared with people who never served in the military. 

Any Veteran diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease is eligible for disability compensation. These claims are “fast-tracked” by the VA so disability compensation payments can begin quickly.     

Our Veterans Benefits Advisors will gladly prepare and file your claim for disability compensation.
