Compensation 101: What Is Service Connection?
You disliked this video. Thanks for the feedback!
Compensation benefits are paid for disabilities that are service-connected. Service connection describes an injury or disease resulting in a disability linked to service in the military. A Veteran must also have separated or been discharged from service under other than dishonorable conditions. VA may grant service connection when evidence shows a link between a claimed medical condition and military service.
