What is veterans' service connected disability?

Service connected disability is a cash benefit for veterans with a disability that is related to their military service. The disability does not need to be so severe that it prevents the veteran from working.

The FAQ section of this toolkit will help you determine if you satisfy the definition of a "veteran"; if your disability is service connected; and how to apply for this benefit.

The Helpful Links section contains other resources to help you gather evidence for your claim and find more information on specific disabilities.
