When you experience the loss of a loved one who has served in the military, it can be a small comfort to know that the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs provides several types of veteran survivor benefits. Knowing which Dept. of Veterans Affairs forms to fill out and how to apply is the first step in the process.
Available Veterans Survivor Benefits
The US Dept. of Veterans Affairs (VA) seeks to provide numerous benefits to surviving spouses and children of deceased veterans. While not all veterans survivor benefits apply to each family, it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with all the available options to see what you may qualify for.
These are only some of the benefits that you may qualify for if you're a survivor of someone who has served in our nation's armed forces. You'll need to know which Dept. of Veterans Affairs forms to fill out and how to apply; you can always call your nearest VA benefits office for specific information.
