VA Department of Veterans Affairs Disability Pension
What is a VA Disability Pension?
Disability Pension is a benefit paid to wartime veterans with limited income who are no longer able to work.
Who is eligible?
You may be eligible if:
· you were discharged from service under other than dishonorable conditions, AND
· you served 90 days or more of active duty with at least 1 day during a war, AND
· you have disabilities that keep you from working full time, OR are over age 65, AND
· your countable family income is below a yearly limit set by law.
How much does VA pay?
VA pays you the difference between your countable family income and the yearly income limit which describes your situation (see chart above). This difference is generally paid in 12 equal monthly payments rounded down to the nearest dollar. Call the toll-free number below or contact your County Veterans Service Officer for details.
How can I apply?
You can apply by filling out VA Form 21-526, Veteran’s Application for Compensation or Pension. If available, attach copies of current medical evidence (doctor and hospital reports).
