VA spotlights special benefits for ELDERLY wartime Veterans
The VA launched an awareness campaign to inform elderly wartime Veterans and their families of their benefits and survivor benefits.
The Veterans Pension program provides monthly payments to wartime Veterans who meet certain age or disability requirements, and who have income and net worth within certain limits.
VA special monthly compensation (SMC) is an additional benefit for Veterans in receipt of pension who are housebound, require the aid and attendance of another person to help them with daily activities.
VA Survivors Pension offers monthly payments to qualified surviving spouses and unmarried dependent children of wartime Veterans who meet certain income and net worth limits set by Congress.
VA Dependency and Indemnity Compensation if you’re the surviving spouse, child, or parent of a service member who died in the line of duty, or the survivor of a Veteran who died from a service-related injury or illness, you may be able to get a tax-free monetary benefit.
VA Burial Benefits Veterans, service members, and some family members may be available for both service-related and non-service-related deaths.
