Disability Compensation

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.

The benefit amount is graduated according to the degree of the Veteran's

disability on a scale from 10 percent to 100 percent (in increments of 10

percent). Compensation may also be paid for 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.

Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC)
DIC is a tax-free monetary benefit generally payable to a surviving spouse, child,

or parent of Servicemembers who died while on active duty, active duty for

training, or inactive duty training, or to survivors of Veterans who died from

their service-connected disabilities. Parents DIC is an income-based benefit

for parents who were financially dependent on of a

Servicemember or Veteran who died from a service-related cause.

Claims Based on Special Circumstances
Veterans may be eligible for other types of disability compensation once a disability

has been determined to be service connected. Special VA disability

compensation programs include: individual unemployability, automobile

allowance, clothing allowance, prestabilization,

hospitalization, convalescence, dental, and birth defects.
