- Incarceration: If a veteran is receiving VA disability benefits and is incarcerated, that veteran can lose their VA benefits or have them reduced.
- Conditions Improve: If your service-connected conditions improve, the VA may take away your rating or reduce your rating. If this happens, you can appeal the VA’s decision.
