Can You Receive VA Disability Benefits for Injuries During Vocational Training?
Yes! Many veterans are unfortunately under the impression that Veterans Disability Benefits are only available to veterans who were injured in combat. That is not true! You can receive Veterans Disability Benefits for injuries that occurred during Chapter 31 Vocational Training. For example, suppose a veteran is working in a mechanics shop for Vocational Training and the car jack slips and crushes your foot. That injury is now covered under VA Disability Benefits because it occurred during Vocational Training. These VA Disability Benefits could be more than $2,800 a month for the rest of your life.
How Much is My Case Worth?
That depends on the severity of your injury and on the amount of back-pay owed to the veteran. VA Disability Benefits are rated on a percentage, 10% to 100%. If your injury is slight you will get a lower rating. If your injury is severe it will be a higher rating. If you receive a 100% VA rating, you could get over $2,800 a month from the Veterans Administration. You can also receive back-pay which can easily add up to a significant amount.
