Disability Compensation: the VA’s Most Famous Duty

If you are a veteran eligible for disability benefits, then you will receive a monthly compensation based on your disability rating. In a highly politicized world, veteran compensation for disabilities acquired in the line of duty is one mission almost all Americans can agree is important.

The line of duty does not end on the battlefield, either. Rather, it encapsulates essentially every incidence between military enrollment and discharge, including when an armed force member was on leave.

Moreover, the disability does not need to be immediately acquired during service. Because the statute defining the “line of duty” includes the phrasing “suffered or … contracted,” the VA has interpreted this to include disabilities that arise years after a service member has been discharged.
