Service-Connected Disability Compensation

What is Service-Connected Disability Compensation? Am I Eligible?

One of Our Experienced Attorney Can Review Both Your Military Service Records and Your Medical History to Map Out a Course of Action to Help You Receive a Successful Outcome.
Your claim hinges on being able to provide a nexus, or link, between your current diagnosis and an in-service event, injury, or illness.

Service-Connected Disability Compensation is a monthly payment made to a Veteran who has a disability, disease, or injury that was incurred or aggravated by their military service.  

The Department of Veterans Affairs will grant these monthly payments based upon the degree of disability and pay additional allowances for your dependents if said disabilities are evaluated as 30% or more disabling.  

Furthermore, a special monthly compensation rate may be authorized for Veterans that have a service-connected disability that is incredibly severe and meets certain statutory regulations. 

Service-connection for a disability may be granted based on the following conditions: 

• You must have actively served or been on active or inactive duty for training in the military. 

• If you were on inactive duty, only a disability stemming from a heart attack, stroke, or injury will qualify for compensation. 

• You must have been discharged from the military under any condition other than dishonorable. 

• You must have a qualifying medical condition that impacts your capacity to sustain gainful employment. 

• A specific event during your military service must have caused or contributed to your medical condition, and you must be able to provide proof that this is the cause. 

• The VA has rated your medical condition at least 10% disabling. 

• If the VA has rated your medical condition 0% disabling, you might be eligible for other VA benefits, but will not be able to recover disability compensation. 

• Your medical condition must not be the result of willful misconduct, which is defined by the Department of Veterans Affairs as “an act involving conscious wrongdoing or a known prohibited action.”

How Can I Prove That I'm Eligible for VA Disability Benefits?

Your claim hinges on being able to provide a nexus and/or a link between your current diagnosis and the in-service event or illness. 

The Department of Veterans Affairs will sometimes presume a service-connection, which makes the case different. 

However, in most cases, it’s imperative that you prove service-connection. 

Per the VA, evidence of the must be inclusive of the following: 

• Discharge paperwork. 

• Current diagnosis. 

• Treatment records. 

• Service record. 

What's The Difference Between Total Disability Based Upon Individual Unemployability (TDIU) & An Extra-Schedular Disability Rating?

A Veteran must meet two requirements under a TDIU claim to be eligible for a 100 percent disability rating: They must have a service-connected disability with a 60% or more disability rating, or two or more service-connected disabilities with a combined rating of 70% or more AND/OR Medical evidence of unemployability. On the other hand, an extra-schedular rating applies to Veterans who are unemployable, due to their service-connected disability or disabilities, but whose disability does not meet the percentage requirements for any of the two aforementioned scenarios.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Much Does It Cost To Hire You?

It does not cost you anything to hire our Veterans Benefits Law Firm as your attorneys. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means you do not owe us anything unless we win you an award. Our firm charges 20%, which is deducted by the VA from your lump sum payment for retroactive benefits.

How Long Will It Take To Appeal My Benefits Denial?

While it can take six months or more for a Veteran to receive a decision on his or her initial benefits claim from the Department of Veterans Affairs, appeals could take 2 years of more. The Department of Veterans Affairs lacks the funding to properly staff and process benefits applications. The number of applications from recently returning Veterans must be dealt with while the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to actively work towards providing services to prior generations of Veterans.

How Do I Increase My Disability Rating?

Great question! If the condition that you are actively receiving disability benefits for has now ultimately worsened over time, you can file an increased rating claim. It’s fairly simple, and it involves filing out an online claim form or mailing a letter to your regional office documenting the change in your condition.
