Do you qualify for a Veteran’s Death Pension?

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs gives qualifying survivors and children a tax- free Survivors Pension Benefit if the deceased veteran met certain requirements.

The time period which the veteran served and if they were enlisted during wartime will matter.  Eligibility is also based on your family’s income, if the spouse has ever remarried and how old the children are.   For a complete list of requirements and how to apply visit http://www.benefits.va.gov/pension/spousepen.asp.
