Survivors and Dependents
A variety of benefits and services are offered to the spouses, children, and parents of veterans who are either deceased or disabled with a service-connected disability. If you are a dependent of a totally or permanently disabled veteran or a survivor of a deceased veteran, you deserve the appropriate financial compensations and services. Many survivors/dependents contact us unaware of their eligibility for pensions and financial assistance. A report in 2005 stated that roughly 2 million veterans and widows miss out on the pensions they deserve.
Pensions, however, are not the only forms of compensation available for survivors and dependents. Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC), educational programs, and special home loan opportunities are offered to dependents and survivors. Yet, the VA often denies claims or the claimants are unaware of their eligibility.
We have dealt with a variety of survivor and dependent cases. If you are a survivor or dependent with questions about the services and compensation you deserve, contact us today.
