How do I apply for compensation or pension? What is the difference?
Compensation is paid to veterans with service-connected disabilities as ruled by VA. Pension is income based for veterans who are in need. To apply for a SC disability, the veteran must show proof of service, have a diagnosed illness/injury, and the illness/injury must be connected to his/her service.

To be eligible for pension, the veteran must show proof of service for at least one active duty day - not including training - during a wartime period as defined by VA in accordance with Federal law.
