Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version


The 2011 DoD Compensation and Benefits Handbook is a quick reference guide for wounded, ill and injured Service members and their loved ones during rehabilitation to reintegration. This Handbook was designed to answer questions in the order in which they are most likely to arise, including chapters on:

  • Recovery resources
  • Medical care
  • DoD pay and allowances
  • Disability Evaluation System
  • Compensation and benefits
  • Reintegration into civilian life

Many of the answers to specific questions will depend on the Service member’s personal circumstances. Service members should take advantage of the assistance of their Recovery Care Coordinator (RCC), Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) Advocate, Navy Safe Harbor Non-Medical Care Manager (NMCM) or Federal Recovery Coordinator (FRC) to help find the answers to questions or contact the appropriate experts.
