Top 15 States for 100% Disabled Veteran Benefits
A 100 percent disability rating, or total disability rating, is the highest rating percentage the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers for service-connected compensation. VA grants this rating to veterans with extremely debilitating service-connected conditions, including those who are unable to work due to their conditions (i.e., TDIU).
A 100 percent rating provides the highest schedular amount of disability compensation. Veterans with this rating also typically qualify for further VA benefits, such as VA health care from Priority Group 1, dental care benefits, and more.
