Military Veteran's Pay Overview

Military Veterans fall into two categories: career-retired and non-career retired. Actual pay benefits vary depending on which category you fall into. But there are benefits for all veterans that can be considered a form of pay.

First, if you are a career-retiree, you qualify for a pension plan that will start the day you retire from service. It is a percentage of your final pay amount and will be adjusted each year according to cost-of-living adjustments.

If you are a veteran who did not stay in the military for a full career, you may be eligible for a pension if:

  • You are a wartime veteran
  • You are no longer able to work
  • Your family income is below a yearly set limit

Aside from regular pension payments, many other payments are available to veterans to help cover some expenses. Most are associated with disability or medical expenses and educational opportunities. You can read more about them in our related articles.
