VA Disability Pay Dates 2020 – The Experts Guide

va disability pay dates 2020

Hi Veterans, Brian Reese here from VA Claims Insider and in this post, I’m explaining the VA disability pay dates 2020 in detail.

One of the questions I get asked all the time is this:

“Brian, I got my new VA disability rating thanks to you and VA Claims Insider Elite, but I want to know the actual VA pay dates for 2020. Do you know when I will start getting paid?”

Awe yes, a very good question, and an important one for disabled veterans and their families.

So let’s dive right into the VA payment schedule for 2020.

VA Disability Payment Schedule Explained

For all VA disability compensation benefits, the actual benefit for a month is paid the first business day of the following month.

However, when the first business day of the month falls on a non-business day or a holiday, VA compensation benefits will be paid on the last business day prior to the first of the month.

For example, the January 2020 VA disability compensation payment will be paid on January 31, 2020, which is the last business day prior to the first of the next month (February).

So if you’re a disabled veteran or a family member, I built this 2020 VA pay dates tracker to help you know “when” your monthly tax-free VA compensation will be direct deposited into your checking or savings account.

If you’d like to know the day of the week that you’ll get your VA disability pay 2020, this is for you veterans.

Please note that you may get your direct deposit payment sooner depending upon your bank.

USAA pay dates and Navy Federal pay dates for 2020 VA disability compensation rates will arrive 1-2 days prior if you’re doing direct deposit from the VA.

For example, I use direct deposit for my VA compensation payment, which goes directly to my Navy Federal checking account each month.

My October 2019 VA payment should have been paid on November 1, 2019, but it arrived in my account one day early, on October 31, 2019.

Navy Federal VA Compensation Payment Date Example 1

Okay, let’s examine November 2019 since it had Thanksgiving.

The November 2019 VA payment should have been paid on November 29, 2019, but yet, it arrived in my Navy Federal Checking Account two days early, on November 27, 2019.

The 2020 COLA jump was 1.6%, which means disabled veterans rated at 10% or higher by the VA will receive a 1.6% increase in their 2020 VA pay rates.
