The Tuley Law Office can provide guidance and assistance to military families who are seeking help filing a claim for dependency and indemnity compensation, also called a DIC claim.

Dependency and indemnity compensation is a tax-free monetary benefit that’s provided to the spouse and family of veterans who die as a result of their service, including service-related injuries and diseases.

The following people may be eligible to file a DIC claim:

  • A spouse who was married to a military member who died during active duty, during active duty training or during inactive duty training;
  • A spouse who re-married on or after December 16, 2003, or a spouse who remarried after reaching the age of 57;
  • A partner who lived with a veteran up until the death or a partner who is separated from a veteran and was not at-fault for the separation and had a child with the veteran, but is currently not re-married.

The child of a deceased veteran can also receive DIC benefits if they do not currently benefit from the spouse’s benefits. The child must also be unmarried and under age 18 or a student between the ages of 18 to 23.

Applying for dependency and indemnity compensation can be a complex process, and there are a number of forms and documents that must be completed in order for the claim to receive approval from the VA. Our veterans’ lawyers have the experience and insights required to help expedite the process, ensuring that the DIC claims process goes smoothly.

The exact dollar amount varies depending on how much is recovered and the overall complexity of your case. We always welcome our clients to contact our legal team. We can provide a better idea of expense after learning more about your unique situation.
