Veteran affairs have always been among the most important matters that the American Government has always tried to cover. The people who go out of their way to protect the American way of life are the ones who should always have the best benefits.
These programs help veteran survivors and dependents, but Chapter 35 of these VA Benefits is missing. We are talking about the Survivors and Dependents Educational Assistance (DEA), which provides education and training opportunities to people who are eligible dependents and spouses of veterans who are either permanently or totally disabled. This happened due to a service-related condition or veterans who passed away while on active duty.
Who’s eligible for the Chapter 35 VA Benefits
Basic eligibility for the Chapter 35 VA Benefits is for spouses, children, or dependents of a veteran or service member who meets at least one of the requirements that are about to be mentioned.
First, this eligibility is determined by people who are permanently or totally disabled from service-connected causes. It’s also for folks on active duty and likely to be discharged with either permanent or total disability. Dependents, spouses, or children of service members who die on active duty or from service-connected causes. Or who are currently missing in action or captured in the line of duty?
According to the rules, the spouse/dependent or child will be eligible to get $100 per month, up to $600 per semester, or up to $1,200 for tutor reimbursement expenses. To enroll, the spouse or dependent needs to complete and return paperwork to the VA Regional Processing Office. They can also apply online through the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. It is the VA Form 22-5490.
