Clothing Allowance

Published 01/24/2007 07:02 PM   |    Updated 03/07/2016 01:40 PM
Does VA have a clothing allowance payment and how do you qualify to get one?

Veterans may be eligible for more than one annual clothing allowance or two annual clothing allowances for a single type of garment.  To qualify for a clothing allowance, each appliance or medication must affect a distinct type of article of clothing or outer garment.  To qualify for two clothing allowances, the article of clothing must wear out at a faster rate than if affected by a single appliance or medication.  For more information, go to http://www.benefits.va.gov/COMPENSATION/claims-special-clothing_allowance.asp
