Approved applicants may receive a one-time payment for up to $21,058.69 to help with

vehicle (power steering, brakes, lift equipment, etc.), allowing individuals easier access 
to their vehicle. To obtain benefits, people must file a claim for disability compensation, 
which the VA must approve before buying a vehicle or adaptive equipment.
