Paralyzed Veterans of America's Veterans Benefits Department led the pack by garnering the highest average monthly awards among the Big 6 veterans service organizations, according to the latest Veterans Benefits Administration 2014 productivity report. Monthly awards include disability compensation, pension, and survivor payments to clients represented by each organization.
Sherman Gillums Jr., deputy executive director of Paralyzed Veterans of America, explained the wide variance in outcome that sets his organization apart: "Our service officers don't just focus on obtaining timely and accurate awards. They pursue the maximum benefit possible for our clients, which often requires going the extra step beyond the initial decision," he said. "Also, they're highly trained in special monthly compensation, a tier of benefits that involves developing and prosecuting complex, multifaceted, catastrophic disability cases. Honing this unique expertise takes a lot of work; but the impact it has on the lives of those we represent makes it worth the effort."
