Question My father served in Vietnam, and I was born with Spina Bifida. Will VA help me?

Answer Depending on the severity of disability, the child of a Vietnam veteran may be eligible for special compensation benefits and vocational rehabilitation benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). If entitled, the recipient may receive $244, $844, or $1,440 per month (subject to annual increases). Apply through your local State Veterans Counseling office or county Veterans Service Agency.
