VA Disability Benefits Pay Chart.
You can find out what the VA pays for a 60 disability rating using the VA disability rating chart. Here’s how to use it:
- Find the number in your rating that represents the percentage you’ve been assigned
- Move down that column until you find your dependent status and how many dependents you have
- That point between those two rows is your monthly payment from the VA
Some special circumstances can increase your VA benefits. These include Special Monthly Compensation (SMC) and Individual Unemployability (IU).
SMC is given when a veteran has a service-connected condition, or conditions, that make daily life especially difficult. IU is issued when a veteran cannot work because of their service-connected condition(s). To learn more about these benefits, visit our VA Benefits Pay Chart page.
Disability Rating of 60 Percent or Higher.
When you are awarded a disability rating of 60 percent or higher, you may be eligible for additional compensation.
If your disability prevents you from working, the VA may pay for training and retraining services to prepare you for other careers. The VA will also pay for the cost of appliances and special equipment needed due to your disability. For example, if your injury requires a prosthetic or wheelchair, the VA will also cover these expenses.
You may also be entitled to educational services if your injury makes it difficult to complete normal tasks such as writing or typing. There are many benefits associated with receiving a 60 percent disability rating from the VA.
Veterans With Dependents
If you are a veteran with dependents, including a spouse and/or children, they may also be eligible for compensation. This includes payments for burial benefits, which may be given to assist surviving spouses or parents in paying for burial costs.
Your spouse’s disability is not a factor when determining their eligibility to receive VA disability compensation as your dependent. However, if they were to become disabled after your death, they would then be able to seek compensation through the VA.
Dependents over the age of 18 are also eligible for several types of education benefits that can help cover the costs of tuition and fees during enrollment in higher education programs. In some cases, these funds can even assist with living expenses while enrolled in school full-time.
