Can widow of retired USAF receive money from the VA, if she was not married at time of service?
Being married during service is not relevant. However, widow must be married to veteran for at least one year or have had a child by him if married less than one; living with him throughout the marriage and at the time of death to qualify for either pension or DIC.
