In general, veterans are entitled to disability compensation if:
- They were discharged or released under conditions other than dishonorable
- Their diseases or injury was incurred or aggravated in the line of duty
- The disability is not a result of their own willful misconduct or abuse of alcohol or drugs.
Veterans found to be entitled to disability compensation receive monthly monetary payments. As of December 2007, for a single veteran with no dependents, these payments ranged from $123 for a 10% disability to $2,673 for a 100% disability. Veterans who are rated 30% or higher receive an additional amount of monthly compensation based on existing family members.
