How Do I Know If The Monthly Benefits I Am Being Paid Are Correct?
Each medical condition that the VA finds is a service-related condition that is evaluated to see what percentage of impairment you have. If you have more than one service-connected disability, the VA will rate each disability separately and combine them to give you an overall disability rating.
Based on the medical evidence and the law, the VA assigns a total disability percentage. The amount paid varies from year to year, but as recently as 2012, it was between $127 and $2,769 in disability benefits each month, depending on your disability rating. Additional benefits may be available if there is a spouse or children. The amount of compensation for each percentage rating is set by law.
Current rates may be seen on the VA website.
