DO I QUALIFY?

VA Disability compensation is a monetary benefit paid to Veterans. They are determined by VA to be disabled by an injury or illness incurred or aggravated during active military service. These disabilities are considered to be service-connected. The Veteran must have been separated or discharged under conditions other than dishonorable to be eligible for compensation. Monthly VA disability compensation varies with the degree of VA disability and the number of eligible dependents. Veterans with severe disabilities may qualify for additional special monthly compensation (SMC)
