Frequently Asked Questions
VA disability benefits are a monthly tax-free payment to Veterans injured or contracted an illness while on active duty or if their active service worsened an existing condition. These benefits are provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and are meant to compensate for disabilities connected to military service.
A service-connected disability refers to an illness or injury that was incurred or aggravated during active military service. This doesn't necessarily mean that the disability happened while in combat; it can also be due to any activity during service, whether it was training, duty, or any other military-related task. The VA determines whether a disability is service-connected based on evidence, such as military records, medical exams, and statements.
A "first-time filer" (FTF) is a term used to describe a Veteran who is applying for VA disability benefits for the first time. This could be a newly discharged service member or a long-term Veteran who has recently decided to pursue benefits for disabilities related to their service.
A disability rating is a percentage the VA assigns to quantify the severity of a Veteran's service-connected disability. The rating system ranges from 0% to 100%, in increments of 10, and reflects how much the disability decreases the Veteran's overall health and ability to function. This rating then determines the amount of compensation a Veteran will receive. A higher percentage indicates a more severe disability, resulting in higher monthly compensation.
