Who Qualifies for VA Disability Benefits

You may be able to get VA disability benefits or compensation if you have a current illness or injury (known as a condition) that affects your body or mind, and you meet at least one of the requirements listed below.

Both of these must be true. You:

  • Served on active duty, active duty for training, or inactive duty training, and

  • Have a disability rating for your service-connected condition

And at least one of these must be true. You:

  • Got sick or injured while serving in the military—and can link this condition to your illness or injury (called an in-service disability claim), or

  • Had an illness or injury before you joined the military—and serving made it worse (called a preservice disability claim), or

  • Have a disability-related to your active-duty service that didn’t appear until after you ended your service (called a postservice disability claim)
