Do I qualify for VA benefits?
In general, veterans qualify for disability benefits provided they suffered disability as a result of injury or illness incurred while on active duty, inactive duty for training or active duty for training.
You do not need to have suffered disability as a result of battlefield injury in order to qualify for VA disability. A Goldsboro veterans benefits lawyer can help you determine your eligibility.
While there are certainly other criteria that must be considered, you must meet the following requirements in order to qualify for disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA):
- Have served in active duty, inactive duty for training or active duty for training
- Have been injured or suffered from illness resulting in at least 10 percent disability in the course of service
- Have been discharged without dishonor
If these criteria are satisfied, you must also demonstrate:
- Medical evidence of your disabling condition (obtained via a comprehensive medical exam)
- Evidence that your disability was caused by injury or illness incurred during your military service

How much money can I get for VA disability?
Federal law determines the amount of your monthly disability payment from the Department of Veterans Affairs. The actual amount you receive depends on the “disability rating” you receive from the VA based on your medical records, examinations and supporting evidence.
Ratings are assigned in increments of ten percentage points, such as “10%,” “30%” or “100%.” The higher your disability rating, the more your monthly payment will be.
For instance, as of 2020, a VA disability rating of 30% entitles you to a benefit of $435.69 per month, while a VA disability rating of 100% entitles you to a benefit of $3,106.04.
Additional money may be awarded based on your marriage status and whether you have dependent children.
You can learn more about disability ratings and how they affect potential VA disability payments here. In any case, you should speak with a Goldsboro veterans benefits lawyer about the specific circumstances affecting your case.
