Disability award payment calculator

If you have been approved for a Disability Award of 5% or more, you have flexible payment options. You may choose to receive your Disability Award as a one-time, lump sum payment, in annual payments, or a combination of a lump sum/annual payments. This calculator can help you understand what your annual payments would be so you can make an informed decision.

If you received an additional payment as a result of the Disability Award increase that was implemented on April 1, 2017, this calculator does not apply. That payment is a one-time lump sum.


Decision Date

  • Amount of Award: Enter the amount of the approved Disability Award provided in the letter you received from Veterans Affairs Canada.
  • Minus Partial Payout: Enter the amount here that you would like to receive as a lump sum now, if you wish to take part of your Disability Award immediately and the balance in annual payments.
  • Decision Date: Enter the date of the Disability Award decision as noted in the letter you received from Veterans Affairs Canada or from the Veterans Review and Appeal Board.
  • Payments over: Enter the number of years you would like to receive annual payments.
  • Annual Payment Amount: The calculator will display the dollar amount of each annual payment (including interest) that would be produced using the criteria you have entered.
  • Need financial advice? You could be eligible to receive support for Financial Advice
