Disability Compensation for Conditions Related to Military Sexual Trauma (MST)

Some Veterans experience MST during their service. These traumas can affect mental and physical health, even many years later. If you experienced MST during service and suffer physically or mentally because of trauma, you may qualify for treatment. Veterans can apply for disability compensation for any current health conditions that were caused by or worsened because of their military service, including conditions related to MST. If you file a claim for disability compensation and VA determines you have disabilities related to your military service, you could receive:

• Monthly nontaxable compensation

• Other important benefits

• VA health care services

• 10-point hiring preference for federal employment

Ask your VA representative or Veterans Service Organization about:

• Disability compensation

• Pension

• Health care

• Caregiver program

• Career services

• Educational assistance

• Home loan guaranty

• Insurance

You can also contact a Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) MST Outreach Coordinator to help you with the claim process. All local VBA Regional Offices have MST Outreach Coordinators.
