VA Disability Compensation Rates for Conditions 
VA disability compensation is a tax-free monetary benefit paid to disabled veterans with service-connected disabilities that are the result of a disease or injury incurred or aggravated during their active duty military service.
2022 VA disability pay rates are determined according to a veteran’s combined VA disability rating, which is rated on a scale from 10% to 100%, with breaks at 20%, 30%, 40%, 50%, 60%, 70%, 80%, and 90%.
While a 0% VA disability rating is still considered “service connected” with some VA benefits, the 0 percent VA rating is not eligible for monthly tax-free compensation benefits (the 0% VA rating is “non-compensable” by law).
Compensation may also be paid for VA disabilities that are secondary to disabilities occurring in service and for disabilities presumed to be related to circumstances of military service, even though they may arise after the veteran has left active duty military service.
Generally, the more severe a veteran’s disabilities, the higher the VA disability rating assigned, which means a higher tax-free monetary benefit each month.
