2020 VA Disability Rates

2020 VA Disability Rates saw 1.6% cost-of-living increase based on the COLA calculations. For a 50% disabled veteran with a spouse and one child who currently receives $1,026.36 per month, this amounts to about $16 more per month.

2020 disability rates are effective 12/1/2019.

VA disability rate increases are determined by Cost-of-Living-Adjustments (COLA). To calculate the VA disability rate increase the average of the COLA indices of July, August, and September 2019 was compared with the 2018 3rd quarter average.
