Veterans pension and disability benefits

These benefits consist mainly of the payments that are received by veterans with service-connected disabilities and by the survivors of military personnel who died of service-connected causes. In addition, these benefits include the payments that are received by war veterans who are 65 years old or older, who have nonservice-connected disabilities, who are permanently and totally disabled, and who meet specified income requirements.

The state and county estimates are based on the data for these payments from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA).
