What is service connected compensation?

Submitted by RobertArrington on Thu, 02/25/2016 - 8:20am

Compensation is payment for a disability that started or was aggravated while the Veteran was on active duty. The amount payable depends on the degree of disability (10%, 20%, 30%,…) and the number of dependents. The Veteran's income and assets have no effect on the amount of compensation.

ODVA Veterans Service Representatives can help you file a claim for service connected compensation.
