Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC)

What is DIC

DIC is a monthly check paid to eligible survivors of certain deceased veterans.

 

Who is Eligible

To get DIC, you must be an eligible survivor of a veteran who died because of a service-related illness or injury.

If the veteran's death was not service-related, you may still be eligible if NY of the following conditions existed at the time of death:

  •    the veteran was getting V Disability Compensation for a total disability for the last 10 years.  (Note:  This also includes veterans who would have received V compensation but didn't because they were getting military retirement or disability pay.)
  •    the veteran was getting V Disability Compensation for a total disability continuously since released from active duty and for at least 5 years.
  •    the veteran was a former prisoner of war, was getting V Disability Compensation for a total disability continuously for at least one year before death, and died after September 30, 1999.

You may be an eligible survivor if:

  •    you were married to the veteran for at least 1 year  (Note:  If a child was born, there is no time requirement)  ND
  •    your marriage was valid  ND
  •    you lived with the veteran continuously until his/her death or, if you were separated, you
    weren't at fault  ND
  •    you are not currently remarried.

OR

  •    you are an unmarried child of a deceased veteran  ND
  •    you are under age 18, or between the ages of 18 and 23 and attending school.
