Date:

It’s a new year which means the 2021 VA disability compensation rates have changed. Wondering what this means? VA disability compensation is a tax-free benefit paid to veterans with a disability. In order to get a condition service-connected, your disability must have either developed or worsened. Therefore, it must be a direct result of serving in the military.

Are you a Disabled Veteran looking to file a VA claim? You may be eligible for Service-Connected disability pay too. 

What Counts as a VA Disability?

If you are trying to determine whether you qualify for Service-Connected disability pay, you might be wondering what counts as a VA disability?

Conditions covered by the VA typically include:

  • Physical disabilities – such as hearing loss, chronic back pain, asthma, and cancers which were a direct result of contact with toxic chemicals
  • Mental disabilities – such as anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, and traumatic brain injury (TBI)

The VA Disability Rating System

For every disability claim, the VA determines a severity rating ranging from 0-100%. This rating moves in increments of 10% increments based on service treatment records, VA medical records, and private medical records directly relating to the disability.

In addition, you may also receive additional benefits if you have:

  • Severe disabilities or loss of limb(s)
  • A spouse, child(ren), or dependent parents
  • A disabled spouse

These are the latest VA disability compensation rates for 2021
