To obtain S-DVI, you must meet the following criteria:
- VA granted service connection for any disability (even if evaluated at zero percent), AND
- You applied within two years from the date VA notified you of that new service-connected disability, AND
- You are in good health, except for any service-connected conditions.
An increase in an existing service-connected disability or the granting of individual unemployability of a previous rated condition does not entitle a Veteran to S-DVI.
