“For tax purposes, a veteran is an individual who has served at least 24 continuous months in active duty and has not been released with “dishonorable” status upon discharge,” explains thesimpledollar.com’s “Ultimate Tax Guide for Veterans”. Spouses, children, and parents of a deceased or disabled veteran are also eligible for benefits, which include but are not limited to:
- Disability Pension
- Disability Compensation
- Education and Training Allowances
- Dependents and Survivors
- Life Insurance
- Housing Grants
- Compensated Work Therapy Program
- There has been a retroactive determination of an increase in the disability benefit
- The combat-disabled veteran has been granted combat-related special compensation, after an award for concurrent retirement and disability.
We at Geyer Law are focused on helping veterans and their families understand – and claim - the benefits they deserve.
