How Does the VA Determine a Disability Rate?

Your VA benefits correlate to your disability rating and it is not an automatic or guaranteed benefit when you retire from the military. To determine your disability rating and compensation benefits, you must first schedule an appointment with the Department of Veterans Affairs after your retirement. Your disability rating and compensation will be based on many factors – medical disability status, marital status, number of dependents and more.
