Qualifying For VA Health Benefits And Other Veterans Advantages
To qualify for many of these benefits, you must be a veteran who served 90 days or more on active duty (with at least one day during a period of war) and have been discharged for any reason except dishonorably. In some cases, you must demonstrate that you have limited income or net worth and/or are over 65 years of age.
To receive disability benefits, you must have been on active duty, training for active duty or training for some types of inactive duty, and sustained an injury, contracted an illness, aggravated a pre-existing condition or become disabled as a result of VA care. These injuries can include any kind of physical injury or psychological trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) or a combat-specific illness such as Gulf War syndrome.
