Would separated spouse be eligible for VA benefits?
Veteran living separately from spouse, over 30 years, but still married, and they file separate taxes.
Non veteran spouse is not eligible for any veterans benefits due to the separation.
If veteran files for NSC pension, file as a single vet. However, provide the marital information, but explain the circumstances in the remarks section and request single veteran status.
