9.6. Special VA Benefits for the Disabled Service Connected Vets: Clothing Allowance

Clothing allowance is an annual lump-sum payment made when a Veteran's service-connected disability causes the use of certain prosthetic or orthopedic appliances (including a wheelchair) that tend to wear or tear clothing, or when the Veteran's service-connected skin condition requires the use of medication that stains the clothing.  More information on the Clothing Allowance program can be found here.

Note: An ancillary benefit is an additional benefit that is related to, or derived from entitlement to certain service-connected benefits.
