Common Questions:

1.      Are only “Honorable” Discharges needed to apply for disability benefits?-

No. Generally, we were informed only honorable discharges were the only separation of service.  However, individuals receiving undesirable, bad conduct and other types of dishonorable discharges may qualify for VA benefits depending on a determination made by VA.  (VA Character of Discharge)- Link
