2010 VA Disability Rates are Announced – No Changes in Benefits
There will be no change in benefits for disabled veterans. The US Department of Veterans Affairs has announced that neither SSA COLA or VA COLA will be increased. Therefore there will be no COLA for disabled veterans in 2010.
Increases in COLA occur if/when inflation rises enough to warrant an increase. The VA compensation COLA is based on the Social Security Administration (SSA) COLA. If SSA COLA rises so does compensation COLA. However, this year the inflation rate for the fiscal year is at -2.0%. Because of this there will be no COLA for disabled veterans in 2010.
