  1. Question: Why Should I file A Claim?

There are numerous and important reasons to file a claim. First and foremost, by virtue of your military service you may be entitled to benefits. Whether it is a VA home loan, healthcare or disability compensation just to name a few, you should at least explore which benefits which you may be entitled to. If you are experiencing residual medical conditions from your military service, filing a VA claim may result in medical care and compensation for those conditions. Also, if you are service connected for an extended period at a total (100%) rating or your death is a result of service connected condition, your surviving spouse may also be entitled to benefits.

If you are a surviving spouse, and you are unsure if you are entitled to benefits, you should contact a Service Officer. The VA has no responsibility to contact you or initiate a claim for accrued benefits, burial benefits or Dependent Indemnity Compensation (DIC) but is willing to assist once your claim is submitted.
