How much do sleep apnea VA disability benefits pay monthly?
Veterans that have service-connected disabilities might be eligible to receive over $2,900 a month. The Veterans Administration pays monthly compensation to veterans who can service-connect their sleep apnea.
Veterans who have had sleep studies or use a CPAP machine should consider applying for sleep apnea VA disability benefits. If you do not yet have a diagnosis of sleep apnea, you may want to begin treating with a doctor to help prove it is service-connected.
Can I service-connect other impairments because of sleep apnea?
Yes! Many veterans do not realize how sleep apnea is related to their other medical conditions. For example, many veterans develop depression because of their sleep apnea.
We all know how important a good night’s sleep is to our well-being. Just one sleepless night can make us irritable and tired. Sleep apnea can cause mental conditions to worsen when a veteran suffers through months – even years – of sleepless nights.
What if I can’t work from my disabilities like sleep apnea?
Veterans that cannot work or have accommodations at work because of service-connected disabilities may be eligible for Total Disability Individual Unemployability (TDIU) benefits. The Veterans Administration offers TDIU benefits to veterans with mental and physical disabilities who have trouble keeping or obtaining meaningful employment.
Our veterans disability lawyers have worked with thousands of veterans who have employment problems. Not being able to work can throw a disabled veteran’s life into chaos. You may not be able to pay your mortgage, car payments, and other obligations.
TDIU benefits pay disabled veterans the same monthly compensation as a 100% VA disability rating. Your mental and physical impairments do not have to total a 100% VA disability rating to obtain TDIU benefits.
You may have been involved in one or more sleep studies, used a c-pap machine, or other medical devices to try to cure this sleep disorder. We all know that if you do not get a good night’s rest, you will not feel your best. You may become depressed and suffer from mood disorders, or other mental illnesses relating to sleep apnea.

What if I was previously denied sleep apnea VA disability benefits?
