VA Disability Benefits Lawyer
As a veteran of the United States military, you are given rights and benefits by the Veterans Administration designed to serve and honor you for the dedication of your life to the protection of your country. One type of benefit to which you are entitled is disability benefits for injuries or conditions resulting from military service.
Eligibility for VA Disability Benefits
In order to qualify for benefits, the VA has outlined three basic requirements: you must be a veteran, you must have a current disability, and the disability must be service-connected. If you meet these three qualifications and have been discharged under conditions other than dishonorable, you may be eligible for benefits.
Payment Amounts of VA Disability Benefits
The amount of your monthly disability payments is based on the type and rating of the disability you have. From 10% to 100%, the VA has rating scales for almost every disability that may arise from service-connected activities. The number of children or dependents you have may also be taken into account so that a 30% rating for an individual without children or dependents may be slightly less than the same rating for a veteran with children or dependents.
