Understanding DIC

VA Dependency and Indemnity Compensation in the age of COVID-19
The DAV Service Office in Milwaukee is still closed to the public. However, VA has
now allowed us, after several months, entry to work in the Office. I must stress
no visitors allowed.

For claims and appeals assistance, we can be reached by:
 Phone: 414-902-5736 between 8:00 am – 3:00 pm
 Email: dav.vbamiw@va.gov at any time

VA Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC)
If you are the surviving spouse, child, or parent of a service member who died in
the line of duty, or the survivor of a Veteran who died from a service-related
injury or illness, you may be able to get a tax-free monetary benefit called VA
Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (VA DIC). Find out if you can get VA
benefits or compensation here.

Important: In this age of the COVID-19 pandemic, survivors need to make sure
the Death Certificate of a deceased veterans lists his service-connected disability
as a contributing factor. Otherwise, you will not be eligible to receive this benefit.
The number of COVID-19 cases are decreasing while vaccinations are increasing.
Hopefully, we will be able to open our Office in a few months. Meanwhile, stay
safe!
