Episode 58: Accrued Benefits and Substitution

VA accrued benefits are benefits (back pay) that are due, but not yet paid prior to a veteran’s death. Alternatively, when a veteran passes away while a claim for VA disability benefits is still pending, an eligible individual may be substituted into the veteran’s case to continue the claim for benefits. Join the CCK team as we break down the specifics of accrued benefits and substitution. We will explain when these benefits are awarded, how to apply, and who is eligible. In addition, we will offer some key tips to follow when applying for these VA benefits.
