A: If you are asking about VA Compensation benefits, you can qualify for a monthly payment if you have a current medical condition that is related to your service - meaning it started while in service or was caused by something that happened to you while on active duty. In addition to monthly compensation you may be eligible for other services through the Department of Veterans Affairs, including vocational rehab, life insurance, low-cost home loans, etc.
