Disability Compensation is a benefit paid to a veteran due to injuries or diseases that happened while on active duty, or were made worse by active military service. It is also paid to certain veterans disabled as a result of VA health care. The benefits are tax-free.
You may be eligible for Disability Compensation if you have a service-related disability and you were discharged under other than dishonorable conditions.
The amount of basic benefit paid ranges from $129 to $2,816 per month, depending on the severity of the disability. You may be paid additional amounts, in certain instances, if:
You have very severe disabilities or loss of limb(s)
You have a spouse, child(ren), or dependent parent(s)
You have a seriously disabled spouse
You can apply by filling out VA Form 21-526EZ, Veterans Application for Disability Compensation. If you have any of the following materials, attach it to your application:
Dependency records (marriage and children's birth certificates)
