About VBG

It starts with our specially trained case managers

VBG was founded by former United States Marine Josh Smith. Josh was employed by the VA as a 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 35,000 Veterans with submitting their VA disability claims, resulting in substantially increased compensation benefits for their disabilities related to active-duty service.

Our Purpose

VBG contracts with third-party networks of independent, expertly trained medical service providers to conduct medical exams.

Guided by heartfelt passion, integrity and experience, we enrich the quality of life for America’s military Veterans while encouraging others to do the same.

Our Mission

VBG ensures accuracy and completeness of each client’s exams and claims.

America’s Veterans are often disadvantaged and underserved by a complicated disability benefits application process. The expert team at Veteran Benefits Guide (VBG) assists Veterans to prepare and submit their disability claims accurately to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), helping them to receive the full financial value of earned benefits associated with their service.

Veteran Benefits Guide made the entire process so simple and smooth.

Working with VA claims can be difficult and confusing sometimes. I knew I wanted to work on my disability claims but gave up on it many times. Veteran Benefits Guide made the entire process so simple and smooth. Everyone I interacted with in the company worked hard to make me feel comfortable and relaxed. I would recommend their services to any veteran looking to get help with their claims.
