For direct online access to VA benefits and resources, create an account here.

If you’re a veteran, or if you know a veteran who experienced a trauma or disability while going through a VA health care treatment or program (even to find or land a job) compensation (payments) may be obtainable through a Title 38 U.S.C. 1151 Claim.

Any disability claim or appeal, once filed, can be checked (the status, etc.) through this portal.

What Makes a Veteran Eligible?

If your disability was suffered (or an injury or disease got worse as result) because of VA negligence or carelessness, a VA medical treatment or surgery, a VA health exam, a VA vocational rehabilitation course, or VA compensated work therapy.

How Does an Eligible Veteran Get This Compensation?

A veteran who qualifies must apply for benefits here. When they do, they must show that the disability stemmed from one of the conditions listed above.

Please note that this is not the same process as filing a claim for a service-connected disability (which can be done here).
