How much does VA Compensation pay?
Some veterans will be able to receive over $2,900 a month. The amount you are owed monthly depends upon the severity and number of you mental and physical disabilities. Veterans who are eligible can also receive monthly benefits for Aid & Attendance. These benefits are for disabled veterans who need caretakers.
Other veterans will be eligible for monthly compensation for dependent children and parents. It is hard enough to take care of yourself with service-connected disabilities – let alone dependents. Luckily, the Veterans Administration offers help.
What if I was previously denied benefits?
If your claim was denied within the last one year, you may want to consider appealing. A large number of veterans are denied their first time applying and must appeal to obtain the VA benefits they deserve.
If you waited longer than one year to appeal a denial, you should re-apply for VA benefits. Lots of veterans let their appeal period collapse and re-apply years later and end up being successful.
The worst thing you can do is to give up because you are denied. These are your benefits and you earned them – don’t let the VA deny your claim.
