Episode 53: Dependency and Indemnity Compensation Explained
Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (also known as DIC) is a monthly benefit that VA awards to a surviving spouse or dependent child(ren) of a servicemember who died in action or from a service-connected condition. However, the requirements for DIC eligibility that VA has laid out are extensive, and somewhat confusing. Join the CCK team as we break down the eligibility requirements for surviving spouses and dependent children seeking DIC. We will explain how and when to apply for DIC, how long benefits last, and more. We will also discuss DIC as it relates to presumptive conditions, non-service-connected death, and other important topics. Be sure to tune in!
