VA disability compensation benefits are monthly, tax-free, benefits that are paid to U.S. military veterans with disabilities that are connected to their active duty military service. These benefits are administered and paid by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Veterans with service-connected disabilities may be eligible for other VA benefits, including, but not limited to, Priority VA healthcare, clothing allowance and grants for adapted housing. You may be able to get VA disability benefits if you got sick, were injured or exposed to environmental toxins, or developed a mental health condition (like PTSD) while serving in the military. Even if your disability did not appear until years after your service, you may still be entitled to benefits so long as you can show that your condition is service-connected – resulted from (or was made worse by) an in-service injury, illness, or event. To prove service connection it is important to find and use qualified medical evidence. To establish service connection, you must prove the following with relevant, credible evidence: a current diagnosis of your disability by a medical professional; an in-service injury, illness, or event; and a medical nexus, or link, between the diagnosed disability and the in-service injury, illness, or event.
