Veteran Disability Compensation Benefits

Taxonomy Code: NS-1800.9000-920

A program administered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs that provides regular monthly payments to compensate veterans who are disabled by injury or illness incurred in or aggravated by active military service and discharged or separated under other than dishonorable conditions. Substandard care at a VA hospital that causes an injury may also be considered service connected. Payment amounts depend upon the percentage of disability. The Compensation Program also provides monthly payments, as specified by law, to surviving spouses, dependent children and dependent parents in recognition of the economic loss caused by the veteran's death during active military service or, subsequent to discharge from military service, as a result of a service-connected disability.
