Disability Compensation

Veterans who were injured while serving their country may be eligible for disability compensation from the federal VA. In some cases, the surviving parents or dependents of veterans killed or wounded in the line of duty may also be eligible for compensation. These benefits are tax-free.

It is highly recommended that you seek the free assistance of an ODVA-trained and certified veteran service officer, who can help you determine the benefits you may qualify for and walk you through the application process. For more information about the process, see How to File a Disability Claim.
