How do Veteran Spouses get VA benefits?

There are specific benefits available to veterans who become permanently and totally disabled due to a service-connected incident during active duty, but there’s some important info you need to know.

Veteran spouses are also eligible for VA benefits, and many of them are automatically included, but others have to apply.

Educational Benefits have been available to Veterans for years, and the VA provides up to three years and nine months to obtain a degree or to complete a course to receive a certificate from a work-training program. Benefits are normally granted automatically and their increases are added to the program.

State-Specific Benefits vary by state and where the Veteran resides, some states provide free counseling, employment assistance, and property tax exemptions.

How do surviving spouses of 100% disabled veterans receive their benefits?

A veteran who had a 100% disability rating may be eligible for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC).

A surviving spouse’s base compensation rate is $1,612.75/month, but there are some options where the spouse can also receive additional compensation.

The surviving spouse can prove that she was married to the veteran for at least eight years before passing, and the compensation is increased by $342.46/month. However, that may increase to $399.54/month if the veteran had received those benefits for at least eight years prior to passing.

The compensation increases by $187.17/month if the spouse is also disabled and housebound.
