VA offers a variety of financial benefits for veterans
Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 — Compensation is one of the main categories of benefits provided by the Veteran Administration.
The primary VA benefit is a service-connected compensation commonly called disability compensation. This tax-free benefit is paid to veterans with disabilities resulting from a disease or injury experienced or aggravated during active military service. In 2013, Lassen County veterans were paid $5.1 million in disability compensation. That’s tax-free money that goes directly into the pockets of our veterans and their families.
