Summary of VA Dependents’ and Survivors’ Benefits
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) offers an 8 page pdf that summarizes the benefits available to families of veterans. There are a number of programs available to families of veterans, including programs to serve these families even after the veteran has died. The pdf can help families identify and connect with these helpful programs.
The VA also provides a supplemental toolkit for families to use for burial planning and beyond, called the Survivors and Burial Benefits Kit. This supplemental toolkit provides direction for pre-need planning and record storage. The toolkit can help families begin to collect and record all the information needed to connect with VA services.
You can find more veteran resources by selecting the “veteran resources” option from the dropdown tab on our Social Service “Utilization Library” page.
