How can I know if I'm eligible for the Post-9/11 stipend?

An eligible veteran is a veteran (or service member undergoing medical discharge) who has a serious injury (including traumatic brain injury, psychological trauma, or other mental health condition), incurred in the line of duty, in active service on or AFTER September 11, 2001, AND who needs personal care services because of an inability to perform one or more activities of daily living, or a need for supervision or protection based on the effects of injury or impairment. (NOTE: caregivers of veterans injured prior to 9/11 may be eligible for some VA assistance under another provision of this law).
