Compensation vs. Pension

Compensation is different from pensions in several important respects. Compensation is linked to some injury, illness, or lingering effect related to being in the military. In the case of Dependency Indemnity Compensation (DIC), the original eligibility is linked to a veteran's compensation entitlements.

On the other hand, pensions are linked to a veteran's disability (not related to military service), limited income, or their military service during a wartime situation. In the post-Vietnam era, the nature of military conflict and wartime service needs to be researched. Your regional office can clarify who qualifies as a wartime veteran.

In the simplest terms, the VA pays compensation for an injury, illness, or lingering effect caused by being in the military, with the clearest example being a battlefield injury. This includes veterans whose eyesight can never be restored due to a combat injury. In these cases, the VA pays compensations to soldiers on a monthly basis. Please contact us for more valuable information about the compensation to which you're entitled.
