Disability Compensation

Category: 
Body: 

The US Department of Veterans Affairs offers a tax free monetary benefit to veterans with disabilities that are the result of a disease or injury incurred or aggravated during active military service. Compensation may also be paid for post-service disabilities that are considered related or secondary to disabilities occurring in service and for disabilities presumed to be related to circumstances of military service, even though they may arise after service.
