Warning – iPhone VA Benefits App


Email regarding an iPhone App targeting Veterans.

An iPhone application that seems predatory/wrong, and it is called “My VA Benefits”. It charges Veterans $4.99 to “maximize the amount of disability money you and your family receive for your injuries…”

In the brief description it contains misinformation about the VBA claims process and seems to imply Veterans should self-diagnose. It states the VA will not get Service Treatment Records for the Veteran, and VA will not review your medical records when making a decision.

Please get the word out to Veterans to be cautious and realize they can get accurate information about the claims process on VA Web sites.
