The Veterans Affairs system was founded in 1930. It is a government, military-run organization that provides various benefits to service members, and in some cases, their spouses and children. One of the main functions of the VA system is to provide healthcare benefits to veterans who qualify. When a service member receives a final physical prior to separating from the military, the soon-to-be veterans claim symptoms and signs that lead to a diagnoses of a disability. The amount of money and/or benefits the veteran will receive, depends on the severity of the disability. Any given disability can be broken down into percentages. For example, a severe disability may elicit 100% compensation, while other minor disabilities may elicit a lower percentage.
