Any veteran who, as a result of military service or duty, incurred the loss of his extremities or use of other specific organs is paid additional compensation by the VA.

Special Monthly Grants, Allowances, and Additional Payments

Many allowance and grant programs are offered by the VA along with compensation for helping the disabled veterans in getting the required tools for disability. Adaptations, automobiles, clothing and housing money are included in these allowances.

The DTAP or the Disabled Transition Assistance Program

The DTAP is an essential element of providing guidance in transition which incorporates involvement in support of the members in service to the military who are subjected to discharge from service due to their disability or those members who have a disability and therefore become eligible to benefit from the Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment Program of the VA.
