TLDR: The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides comprehensive benefits to the spouses of veterans with a 100% disability rating, including additional monthly compensation for dependents. The monthly compensation varies based on the veteran’s marital status and the number of dependents in the household. In 2024, a veteran with no spouse receives $3,737.85 per month, while a veteran with a spouse and one child receives $4,098.87 per month. Additional compensation of $103.55 per month is added for each additional child. Surviving spouses of 100% disabled veterans may qualify for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC), which provides tax-free monthly benefits. The base compensation for DIC in 2022 is $1,437.66 per month, with additional monthly compensation based on various factors. Spouses should contact the VA for guidance and assistance in determining eligibility and accessing benefits.
