There are several reasons why some veterans don't believe they are el- igible for disability benefits. Some common misconceptions include their discharge rating, length of service, not having served during a period of war, not having been wounded in battle, or other concerns. We can ad- dress a couple of these topics: Discharge Status: Veterans benefits are generally open to veterans with a discharge rating under other-than- dishonorable conditions (in other words, everything except a dishonorable discharge). This means veterans may still be eligible for disability bene- fits even if they have a Bad Conduct Discharge (BCD) or an Other Than Honorable (OTH) discharge. Length of Service: Active duty veterans generally need to have active duty service beyond basic training to be el- igible for disability benefits, unless the Illness or injury occurred during basic training. This generally covers most veterans who served on active duty. Members of the Guard or Reserves who were only activated for training purposes should contact the VA for a records review to deter- mine eligibility. ity claim. , Walsh County Myth: My illness ' injury isn't bad.

Note about 0%disability ratings: it is possible to receive a 0% dis- ability rating. This occurs when the VA acknowledges there is an illness or injury connected to your military service, but it's just not bad enough to be granted at a compensable level (10% or greater). This is still con- sidered a valid disability rating and if the condition worsens, you can file a new claim requesting the rating be increased.
