Increased Disability Payments for Veterans With Dependents

Veterans entitled to compensation who have a disability rated at 30% or more are entitled to additional compensation for dependents. Dependent children between the ages of 18 and 23 must be attending school and a dependent for tax purposes.

Parents may be considered dependents if the veteran provides more than 50% of their support. Veterans with a disabled spouse may also be eligible for increased benefits. Check with the VA for details.

There is also a Dependency & Indemnity Compensation benefit for survivors of some disabled veterans.
