Is a remarried veteran’s spouse entitled to Veterans Benefits?
Spouse is the widow of a, killed in action, WWII veteran. She is currently married to a Korean War veteran. If she remarried, after the age of 57 and after December 16, 2003, she should be able to retain the DIC from her first husband. However, if she did not, and she becomes single again, she will obtain first husband’s DIC and CHAMPVA. Otherwise, her current husband may qualify for his own veteran’s benefits. Nevertheless, she personally does not qualify for any veterans benefits, at this moment in time.Tags: CHAMPVA, DIC, killed in action, military, VA, veteran's spouse, Veterans Benefits, widow, WWII veteran
