VA Disability Compensation

Reservists who are receiving VA disability compensation are not entitled to receive military pay and allowances (active duty or IDT) at the same time.  Any reservist receiving VA disability compensation must elect to receive military pay and allowances or VA compensation through annual submission of a waiver form to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Notice of Waiver of VA Compensation or Pension to Receive Military Pay and Allowances VA Form 21-8951-2 is used to elect a waiver of VA Compensation or military pay and allowances. VA form 21-8951-2 must be completed each fiscal year by the member, endorsed by the member's unit CO, and submitted to the VA regional office responsible for the member's VA claim file.

If you have questions or need assistance with completing VA Form 21-8951-2, please contact the VA at 1-800-827-1000
