Disability Compensation

The Veterans Services Office is moving to a new location!

Beginning June 25, 2021, the Wilkes County Veterans Services Office will be located in the Wilkes County Agricultural Center located at:

 416 Executive Drive, Wilkesboro, NC 28697

Veterans Services will be closed on June 23 and June 24 during the transition process. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Monetary benefits known as disability compensation are paid to veterans who are disabled by injury or disease incurred or aggravated during active military service. The service of the veteran must have been terminated through separation or discharged under conditions that were other than dishonorable.

Disability compensation varies with the number of dependents, and is paid monthly. The payment of military retirement pay and separation known as SSB and VSI (Special Separation Benefits and Voluntary Separation Incentives) also affects the amounts of VA compensation paid.
