Federal Benefits for Veterans and Dependents
2002 Edition

- BENEFIT PROGRAMS -
(Incarcerated Veterans: Excerpts)

Disability Compensation

Incarcerated Veterans:

VA benefits are restricted if a veteran, surviving spouse, child or dependent parent is convicted of a felony and imprisoned for more than 60 days. The disability compensation paid to an incarcerated
veteran is limited to the 10 percent disability rate. For a surviving spouse, child, dependent parent or veteran whose disability rating is 10 percent, the payment is at the 5 percent rate. Any amounts not paid may be apportioned to eligible dependents. Payments are not reduced for recipients participating in work-release programs, residing in halfway houses or under community control. Overpayments for failure to notify VA of a veteran’s incarceration result in the loss of all financial benefits until the overpayment is recovered.

Pension

Incarcerated Veterans:

A veteran may not receive VA pension benefits while incarcerated for more than 60 days. The veteran’s dependents, however, may receive a portion of such benefits. Failure to notify VA of a veteran’s incarceration will cause the loss of all financial benefits until any overpayment is recovered.
