VA Disability Compensation Increases

VA disability compensation along with VA pensions, retired pay and annuities have increased for 2013. Last month, the more than four million Veterans and survivors who receive compensation benefits from VA saw an increase of 1.7 percent in their total monthly payment. The increase is due to an annual cost of living adjustment (COLA) that ensures compensation benefits for Veterans and survivors keep pace with inflation.
