Am I Eligible for VA Disability Compensation?
New Jersey veterans who have a service-connected injury, illness or medical condition may not know if they are eligible for VA disability benefits and monthly compensation. We can help with this overview of the Department of Veterans Affairs guidelines for veteran disability.
The Department of Veterans Affairs requires that eligible veterans meet TWO basic criteria. The veteran must have an injury, illness or medical condition that affects the mind or body AND the veteran must have served on active duty, active duty for training or inactive duty for training.
In addition to the primary criteria, veterans who qualify for disability benefits must fit ONE of the additional criteria in the list below.
- Must have a service-connected injury, illness or condition that was sustained and discovered while in the military – deemed an In-Service Disability Claim.
- Must have had an injury, illness or condition prior to military service and serving made it worse – deemed a Pre-Service Disability Claim.
- Must have a service-connected injury, illness or condition that did not appear until after military service – deemed a Post-Service Disability Claim.
Are New Jersey Veterans Eligible for Additional VA Benefits?
Veterans who have served and sacrificed for the United States deserve support that is equal to their sacrifice – and disability compensation is not the only benefit available to New Jersey veterans via the Department of Veterans Affairs. VA Home Loans can help veterans purchase their dream home and only 6% of veterans have used them. The Montgomery G.I. Bill will help veterans further their education and just 40% of veterans have used these benefits. Additional veterans benefits include employment benefits, medical care, affordable insurance and more.
