Surviving spouses, minor or dependent children, and dependent parents 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 called VA Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (VA DIC), as well as other benefits for burial costs, education, health care and life insurance.
The VA system can be challenging when you are not dealing with grief. Following the loss of a loved one, applying for VA benefits can be downright overwhelming. ProVet Legal will help you navigate the VA system, and ensure you and your family receive all the benefits to which you are entitled.
