Who Is Eligible for VA Disability Compensation?
Many veterans who contact VA Benefits Attorneys want to know – am I eligible for VA disability and compensation? We can help answer that question. Take a closer look at the requirements that veterans must meet to be eligible for disability benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs states that disabled veterans must meet TWO basic criteria – they must have a service-related injury, illness or medical condition that affects the body or mind AND they must have served on active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty for training.
To be eligible for disability, a veteran must also fit ONE of the injury classifications listed below:
- In-Service Disability Claim – A veteran has a service-related injury, illness or medical condition that was sustained and discovered while in military service.
- Pre-Service Disability Claim – A veteran had an injury, illness or medical condition prior to military service that was made worse while in military service.
- Post-Service Disability Claim – A veteran has a service-related injury, illness or medical condition that was discovered after military service.
