How to Get VA Disability Benefits in Parma, OH
If a veteran receives service connection, VA will then assign a disability rating to the condition for which they have established service connection. This rating issued will range from 0 percent to 100 percent, based on the severity of the disability. The ratings will then be added together using VA math to get a combined disability rating. This combined disability rating will determine their monthly compensation rate.
As of December 1st, 2023 the VA disability rate benefit amounts are as follows:
- 0 percent disability rating: $0.00 per month
- 10 percent disability rating: $171.23 per month
- 20 percent disability rating: $338.49 per month
- 30 percent disability rating: $524.31 per month

How Much Do Veterans (VA) Disability Lawyers Charge?
Under 38 CFR § 14.636, VA regulates who may represent veterans and how much they can be paid. An accredited veterans (VA) disability attorney typically charges on a contingency basis, meaning they will take a previously agreed upon percentage of recovered retroactive benefits.
Fees equal to or below 20 percent are considered reasonable by VA, while anything above 33.3 percent is presumed unreasonable. It is illegal to charge fees based on any future benefits.
