2024 VA Disability Payments

The cost-of-living adjustment for 2024 was 3.2%, which resulted in a considerable increase in VA disability compensation compared to 2023 VA payment rates.

  • $171.23 a month for 10% of disability benefits
  • $338.49 a month for 20% of income
  • $524.31 a month for a 30% handicap
  • $755.28 a month for 40% of the income
  • $1,075.16 a month for a 50% handicap
  • $1,361.88 a month for a 60% handicap
  • $1,716.28 a month for a 70% handicap
  • Monthly benefit of $1,995.01 for 80% disability
  • monthly benefit of $2,241.91 for 90% disability
  • $3,737.85 a month for total disability coverage

Monthly disability benefits are not available to veterans with a 0% disability rating. They might, nevertheless, be eligible for VA healthcare benefits. Recall that if their condition worsens, veterans with a 0% rating may file more claims at a later time. 

How to find your monthly payment?

Navigate to your disability rating’s compensation rates. Locate the amount for your dependent status and handicap rating on the Basic monthly rates table. This represents your base monthly fee.

  • Your base monthly fee would be $586.31 if you are a Veteran with a 30% disability rating, dependent spouse, and no dependent parents or children.
  • Your starting cost would be $1,968.28 (for a veteran with a spouse and one child) if you have a 70% disability rating, are married, and have three dependent children under the age of 18.

You would additionally add $134 if your spouse is eligible for Aid and Attendance (this is the additional payment for a spouse who qualifies for Aid and Attendance for a Veteran with a 70% disability rating).

Increased Disability Payments for Veterans With Dependents

Dependents of veterans eligible for compensation who have a disability rating of at least 30% are also eligible for supplementary pay. For tax purposes, dependent children who are between the ages of 18 and 23 must be enrolled in school.

If a veteran supports their parents more than half of their income, they may be deemed dependents. Veterans may also be eligible for higher benefits if their spouse is disabled.
