Tacoma Veterans (VA) Disability Statistics
According to the United States Census Bureau, over 86,000 veterans have made their home in Pierce County, WA. More than 18,000 veterans live in the City of Tacoma. Of those 86,000+ Pierce County veterans, around one-third received some form of benefits from the Department of Veteran Affairs in 2017.
Between July 2018 and June 2019, the Washington State Department of Veteran Affairs granted 81% of all claims. By extrapolating that success rate back through history, we can estimate that approximately 1,400 of the 18,000 current Tacoma veterans once applied for benefits and received full denials of their claims.
At Gustad Law Group, we would love to assist every one of those 1,400 Tacoma veterans so they can receive the benefits they so desperately need. If you are one of them, please contact us at (206) 737-1776 for a free consultation.
