Disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is a tax-free monthly benefit given to veterans with a service-connected illness or injury. The benefits you receive are based on your disability rating, which determines how much your illness or injury affects your ability to work or complete daily activities. Once approved for disability benefits, the next thing you will want to know is the VA disability pay date schedule.
When Will I Get My Monthly Benefits?
Payment benefits are sent out on the first business day of the following month. Should the first business day occur on a holiday or weekend, payment will be sent on the last business day of the prior month.
If you use an early-pay bank like USAA or Navy Federal Credit Union, your direct deposit may arrive sooner.
How Much Will I Get?
Because the amount you will receive depends on the disability rating you have received and the illness or injury you suffer from, payment varies from person to person. You can use our disability calculator to determine your benefits. Be sure to check our disability rates guide to determine the estimated dollar amount you may receive.
