How to Maximize Your Veterans Disability Benefits

by Staff Blogger | January 12th, 2015

It can be difficult for a veteran with a disability to make ends meet if their condition prevents them from working. That’s why it’s so important for disabled veterans who are under financial strain to plan, budget, and develop a strategy for paying the bills. Not to fret though, there are several resources available to injured and disabled veterans.

One of the first resources you should consider applying for is veterans disability benefits. Such compensation is awarded to veterans who are no longer able to work due to a medical condition directly related to United States military service. These benefits are dispensed based on the claimant’s pay grade at the time of their injury or diagnosis and the disability rating the individual receives when their condition is examined by medical professionals.

Incentives offered to former U.S. military service members are another option disabled veterans should consider pursuing. These incentives include tax breaks veterans can receive for their home. The Zanesville Times Recorder reports veterans are entitled to claim as much as $50,000 in tax exemptions for their residence if they are considered 100 percent disabled by the United States government.

If you’re a disabled veteran who is struggling financially, the most important thing to know is that help is available.
