“How much money am I eligible to receive per month?”
The amount you receive in VA disability payments per month depends on the disability rating you are assigned by the VA.
Your VA disability rating is a percentage in increments of 10 percentage points (e.g. 10%, 30%, 70%, 100% etc.) that represents the extent of your disability as determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
For example, according to the most recent compensation tables:
- A veteran with a 10% disability rating will receive $142.29 per month
- A veteran with a 90% disability rating will receive $1,862.96 per month
Veterans who are married and/or have dependent children may receive a higher payment, as well.
A complete guide to VA disability payments is available on the VA website.
The difference between a 90% rating and a 100% rating can be more than $1,000 per month, so seeking the highest rating possible is very important.
A veterans disability lawyer serving Kannapolis NC can help you compile the strongest evidence and case for VA disability benefits in order to get the highest VA disability rating possible.

Increasing Your Chances at Approval for VA Disability
Roughly 60% of initial claims for VA disability are denied. And many of these denials are based on errors, according to recent research.
You do not have to do this alone, and you do not have to accept “No” for an answer. In most cases, veterans with disabilities have options to appeal or file a new claim for benefits.
We would love to help however we can.
