Special Monthly Compensation

Special Monthly Compensation

Living with a disability or other serious condition can have an enormous impact on your life. The benefits paid out by the VA may not be enough to cover the costs of your treatment and your lost income.

​Even if you are already rated at 100 percent, it may be possible to obtain VA benefits above and beyond the standard veterans benefits known as Special Monthly Compensation. These benefits are paid in addition to the regular VA disability compensation.

Our veterans disability lawyers have extensive experience assisting clients with the claims process for Special Monthly Compensation.


How Do I Qualify for Special Monthly Compensation?

​In order to receive Special Monthly Compensation, your disability must be service-connected. Special Monthly Compensation may be awarded when the service-connected disability involves:

  • The loss of use of a limb, foot or hand
  • Blindness or deafness
  • Loss of breast tissue (for women)
  • Loss of use of one or more creative organs (reproductive organs)

These are just a few ways to receive Special Monthly Compensation. Additionally, if you are unable to care for yourself and need long-term care from a medical professional or a loved one, you may be eligible for additional benefits for “aid and attendance.” In order to receive aid and attendance benefits, your service-connected disability must be evaluated as 100 percent.
