The VA benefits direct deposit schedule determines when you will receive your VA benefit check. If you have just been approved for VA benefits then you will get your first regular monthly payment on the first of the next month.
The VA pays benefits a month behind, just like Social Security pays disability benefits a month behind. This means your VA benefit payment for February will go into your bank account via direct deposit on March 1st. Note that if you are owed back compensation benefits, that payment can arrive on any day of the month and is often received prior to your first regular monthly payment.
The Veterans Administration processes compensation payments for all veterans who are eligible for cash benefits.
VA Disability Ratings and Compensation Amounts
VA ratings go from 0% to 100% in increments of 10. A rating of 30 percent or higher qualifies you to receive additional benefits for qualifying dependents. The VA does not simply add all of your ratings to get your combined rating amount. You can use our VA Disability Calculator to calculate a combined rating as well as the corresponding payment amount. As of December 1st, 2022 the VA disability rate benefit amounts are as follows:
- 0 percent disability rating: $0.00 per month
- 10 percent disability rating: $165.92 per month
- 20 percent disability rating: $327.99 per month
- 30 percent disability rating: $508.05 per month
- 40 percent disability rating: $731.86 per month
- 50 percent disability rating: $1,041.82 per month
- 60 percent disability rating: $1,319.65 per month
- 70 percent disability rating: $1,663.06 per month
- 80 percent disability rating: $1,933.15 per month
- 90 percent disability rating: $2,172.39 per month
- 100 percent disability rating: $3,621.95 per month
