“How does VA disability work?”

Raleigh VA Disability Lawyer - Riddle & BrantleyVeterans disability is available to those who served in active duty, inactive duty for training, or active duty for training and suffered disability as a result of a service-related injury or illness.

Monthly disability payments are paid by the VA. The amount is based on the “VA disability rating” you are assigned based on your medical records, medical examination, and supporting evidence.

While your disability must be the result of a “service-related” injury or illness, keep in mind that you do not need to have been injured in active combat in order to be eligible for veterans disability benefits.

For example, if you slip and fall while on a military base and suffer disability as a result, you may be entitled to benefits.
