How Can I Receive Veterans Benefits?

The VA adheres to a strict set of guidelines when determining if you or your family members are eligible for benefits. You may qualify for benefits if you are a:

  • Veteran: As a veteran, you may be eligible for compensation, pension, or other benefits if you have a service-related disability—provided you were discharged from military service under any conditions other than dishonorable.
  • Veteran Dependent: A veteran’s spouse, a former spouse who has not remarried, a veteran’s children, and even a veteran’s parents may be eligible to receive certain veterans benefits under certain conditions.
  • Veteran Survivor: The surviving spouse, child, or parent of a deceased veteran may qualify for benefits. These include burial benefits, pensions, gratuity payments, and dependency or indemnity compensation.

Should I File an Appeal of My Claim?

While an applicant can file an appeal for any reason, most appeal a decision because they were either denied benefits for a disability they believe occurred during service or their disability is more severe than rated by the VA.
