Parents of injured and deceased veterans may be eligible for compensation

Are you the parent of a service member who died in-service or from a service-connected disability? Or are you dependent on your child who is a veteran with a service-connected disability? If so, you will be eligible for compensation if you meet eligibility requirements established by the VA.

Qualifying “parents” may be:

  • Biological
  • Step
  • Adopted
  • In loco parentis

The charts for determining compensation rates for parents are located on the VA’s website and categorized according to:

  • Sole Surviving Parent Unremarried or Remarried Living with Spouse
  • One of Two Parents Not Living with Spouse
  • One of Two Parents Living with Spouse or Other Parent

According to the table, the most compensation under the Dependency and Indemnity Compensation program currently available to a dependent parent is $569 per month.
