Is PTSD Eligible for VA Disability?

Video Transcript

Yes. Veterans who are suffering from PTSD can absolutely be eligible for disability benefits if their condition is caused by their time and service. The veteran will need to show the VA that the stressor or the trigger happened during their time in service and that a doctor diagnosed a veteran with PTSD.

The rating can range from 0% to a 100%, depending on the severity of the PTSD. 100% would mean that the PTSD completely interfered in the veteran’s ability to work and in their way of life. This can be accompanied by symptoms like persistent delusions or hallucinations, persistent danger of hurting self, or wanting to hurt others, and memory loss.
