Jermaine Oldham – Elite Member Success Story

Last updated on May 20, 2021

Forty-four days after joining VA Claims Insider’s Elite Program, Jermaine Oldham increased his VA disability rating from 60% to 100%. 

He now feels educated about the complexities of the VA claims process, and encourages fellow veterans to fight until they’re correctly rated.

Jermaine Oldham Family

Oldham’s military career began in 1997 when he joined the Air Force’s Delayed Entry Program. Coming out of high school, Oldham had received scholarship offers to play college football in Kentucky. But at the last minute, he had a change of heart.

“I wanted to go serve my country, and I wanted to make a difference.”

Upon being honorably discharged from the Air Force in 2005, Oldham received a 0% disability rating. Then in 2019, he decided to engage a local VSO in an attempt to get help with military-related issues he was dealing with. 

Oldham was awarded a rating of 60%—completing documents as requested but never really understanding the process himself.

“I was submitting forms,” he recalls, “but I didn’t understand why I had to do certain things.”


Qualify for Higher Rating

Then in late 2020, Oldham stumbled onto a VA Claims Insider YouTube video talking about getting the benefits and rating you deserve. He immediately recognized that he likely qualified for a higher rating. 

“I had all these symptoms, but I didn’t know how to describe them.”

After investigating with the Better Business Bureau and other organizations, Oldham felt confident that VA Claims Insider was legit. He appreciated that he would only pay if he received a higher rating. 

A month later, Oldham joined the Elite Program at VA Claims Insider. “It was absolutely a no-brainer to join.”

The minute Oldham took control of the claims process, he went “all in.” He researched, watched VA Claims Insider videos, and attended strategy sessions with his veteran coach.


The Benefits You Deserve

The more educated he became the more he realized it was possible to get the rating—and benefits—he deserved for conditions connected to his military service.  

Along the way, Oldham learned the critical pieces he needed to file a fully developed claim: supporting medical evidence, nexus letters, personal statements, and buddy letters. 

“You’ve got to know those technicalities,” he says. “Otherwise you’ll file a claim without enough supporting evidence—and get denied or underrated.” 

With support and education, Oldham filled in the gaps in his claim, and is now rated at 100%.

He is now on a mission to encourage other veterans who feel underrated and frustrated with the disability claims process. 

“It’s the unknown that scares you,” Oldham says, “But once you understand the process and break it down, it becomes much more accessible. I feel so empowered now.”

Dear Veteran,
Here’s the brutal truth about VA disability claims:

According to our data, 8/10 (80%) of veterans reading this message right now are underrated by the VA…

This means you do NOT currently have the VA disability rating and compensation YOU deserve, and you could be missing out on thousands of dollars of tax-free compensation and benefits each month.

As a fellow disabled Veteran this is shameful and I’m on a mission to change it.
