a. Rates for each school child are shown separately. They are not included with any other compensation rates. All other entries on this chart reflecting a rate for children show the rate payable for children under 18 or helpless. To find the amount payable to a 70% disabled veteran with a spouse and two children, one of whom is over 18 and attending school, take the 70% rate for a veteran with a spouse and 1 child and add the rate for one school child.

b. Where the veteran has a spouse who is determined to require A&A, add the figure shown as “additional for A&A Spouse” to the amount shown for the proper dependency code.

NOTE: Starting in 2014 VA now pays compensation to the exact dollar/cents figure. Prior to this change all compensation was paid in whole dollars and rounded down to the nearest whole number.
