What is Disability Compensation

The VA administers many benefits for veterans. One of those is the disability compensation for veterans who have service connected disabilities. Disability Compensation is a tax free monetary benefit paid to Veterans with disabilities that are the result of a disease or injury incurred or aggravated during active military service. Compensation may also be paid for post-service disabilities that are considered related or secondary to disabilities occurring in service and for disabilities presumed to be related to circumstances of military service, even though they may arise after service. Generally, the degrees of disability specified are also designed to compensate for considerable loss of working time from exacerbations or illnesses. To get disability compensation a veteran must have a current disability. That disability must arise from an event in service and it must be serious enough to warrant compensation.
