Benefits for Children

Accredited Attorneys Advocating for the Children of Veterans!

Your Family is Our Family Because Veterans are Everything to Us!
As a Veteran's surviving spouse, child or parent, you may qualify for certain benefits, such as help with burial costs and compensation or pension.

The amazing men & women who fight to make sure the United States is safe around the clock have enough to deal with every minute that they’re on active duty. But any parent knows that when you have children, they are and forever will be your biggest priority.

It’s unfortunate, but sometimes those same children become a survivor of someone who was killed, and the Survivor’s Dependency and Indemnity Compensation program can be an incredibly beneficial resource for those in that position. 

If you, or someone you know may be eligible for survivor’s benefits, the attorneys at Marcari, Russotto, Spencer and Balaban are ready to help. We’re experienced with how devastating this situation is, and we treat every survivor’s claim we see with the dignity and respect that it deserves.

How Can the Children of Deceased Service Members Become Eligible for VA Survivors Benefits?

For a child of a deceased service member to qualify, they must: 

• Not be included on the surviving spouse’s DIC benefits. 

• Be unmarried and under the age of eighteen (18). 

• Be between eighteen (18) and twenty-three (23) and attending school. 

How Can Children Obtain a Veteran's Death Pension?

A child may be able to receive a Veteran’s death pension if the deceased Veteran in question was discharged from the service, if it was not dishonorable, and they served ninety (90) days or more of active duty with at least one (1) day during a period of determined wartime.  

In addition to that, you must also be either an unmarried child or surviving spouse of the deceased and your countable income must be below a yearly limit set by law.  

It is important to note, however, that federal law does require anyone that enlisted after Sept. 7th, 1980, to serve at least two years or twenty-four (24) months/full period for which a person was called to or ordered to be active duty to make sure the maximum benefits based on that period of service are obtained, rectified after the start of the Gulf War in 1991.

How Long Will It Take To Appeal My Benefits Denial?

While it can take six months or more for a Veteran to receive a decision on his or her initial benefits claim from the Department of Veterans Affairs, appeals could take 2 years of more. The Department of Veterans Affairs lacks the funding to properly staff and process benefits applications. The number of applications from recently returning Veterans must be dealt with while the Department of Veterans Affairs continues to actively work towards providing services to prior generations of Veterans.

How Do I Increase My Disability Rating?

Great question! If the condition that you are actively receiving disability benefits for has now ultimately worsened over time, you can file an increased rating claim. It’s fairly simple, and it involves filing out an online claim form or mailing a letter to your regional office documenting the change in your condition.
