Hi Veterans, Brian Reese here from VA Claims Insider, and in this post, I’m explaining the VA disability pay dates 2021 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 2021. Do you know when I will start getting paid?”– Veteran Asks
Awe yes, a great question, and an important one for disabled veterans and their families.
So, let’s dive right into the VA payment schedule for 2021.

2021 VA Disability Pay Dates Explained
You might be wondering, when will I get my VA disability compensation payment each month?
For all VA disability benefits, the actual benefit for a month is paid the first business day of the following month.
However, when the first 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 2021 VA disability compensation payment will be paid on Monday, February 1st, 2021, which is the first business day of the following month (February), which happens to fall on a Monday.
So, if you’re a disabled veteran or a family member, I built this VA disability pay dates 2021 tracker to help you know “when” your monthly tax-free VA compensation payment 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 in 2021, 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 2021 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, and it usually arrives 1-3 days prior.
The 2021 COLA jump is estimated to be 1.1%, which means disabled veterans rated at 10% or higher by the VA will receive a 1.1% increase over and above their 2020 VA pay rates.

VA Pay Calculator Made Easy
Hi Veterans, wondering how to calculate your combined VA disability rating and pay rate for 2021?
The VA uses a “fuzzy math” calculation to determine your overall VA rating (it can get confusing for sure), thus VA ratings are NOT cumulative.
