The death of a loved one is always a difficult time, and the loss of a veteran or active duty service member can be especially hard to cope with. In addition to the emotional toll, surviving family members may also face financial challenges. Fortunately, the Department of Veterans Affairs provides survivor benefits to help dependents of deceased veterans and we want to share those benefits with you in today’s episode.
These benefits can be used to cover expenses such as funeral costs, housing payments, and medical bills. In addition, survivor benefits can help to make up for lost income. While nothing can make up for the loss of a loved one, survivor benefits can help to ease the financial strain on surviving family members.
