When Veterans are injured or develop disabilities related to injury or disease incurred during active service, they may be eligible to receive Disability Compensation. Disability Compensation is a monthly, tax free benefit paid to Veterans with disabilities resulting from a disease or injury acquired or aggravated during active military service.
Disability Compensation is a monthly payment made to the Veteran or family member because of a service-related disability. The injury or disease must have been sustained in the line of military duty or be a pre-existing injury or disease aggravated by military duty.
You may file for Disability Compensation on-line by going to www.ebenefits.va.gov. By submitting all the evidence you have in support of your claim, you shorten the time it usually takes for the VA to process the claim.
