As the surviving spouse of a deceased Veteran, am I entitled to compensation benefits?

Surviving spouses may be entitled to Dependency and Indemnity Compensation if the Veteran died on active duty or from a disability related to military service. To be eligible for the benefits, the surviving spouse had to have been married to the deceased Veteran for at least one year before the death. Surviving spouses may be eligible to receive Death Pension benefits if the Veteran served during wartime. These benefits are based on financial need.
