The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has two disability programs: Service-Connected Disability Compensation and Non-Service-connected Disability Pension. Disability Compensation is for veterans who suffer from disabilities that were caused or aggravated by their service in the military. Disability Pension is for low-income veterans who are totally and permanently disabled due to disabilities which are not related to their time in the service.
Eligibility for Service-Connected Disability Compensation
The most common type of claim is for service-connected disability compensation. At The Rep For Vets®, our VA-accredited claims agents prove that veterans are “service-connected” by proving certain criteria:
- The veteran has a current disability.
- The veteran experienced an injury or event during service that caused or aggravated the disability.
- There is a causal relationship between the current disability and military service.
