How to Secure VA Disability Benefits in Minot, ND

Veterans living in Minot, North Dakota with a service-related disability can file a claim for disability compensation.  To secure VA benefits in Minot, you generally need evidence of the following three things:

  • An in-service event, injury, or illness;
  • A current diagnosis of a disabling condition by a medical professional; and
  • A medical nexus, or link, between the in-service event and disability.

Some examples of evidence that can prove these three elements of service connection include medical records, military service records, medical opinions from treating doctors, employment records, and lay evidence.

VA Disability Compensation Rates

Once service connection is established, VA will assign a disability rating, ranging from 0 to 100 percent, your condition.  Your combined disability rating (i.e., the combination of each of your individual ratings using VA math) determines your monthly compensation amount.

As of December 1st, 2021 the VA disability rate benefit amounts are as follows:

  • 0 percent disability rating: $0.00 per month
