Will my spouse get my VA pension and/or compensation when I die?

No. Compensation and pension end upon the death of the Veteran. The surviving spouse must apply and qualify on her own merit for either Dependency and Indemnity Compensation or a Death Pension.

An ODVA Veterans Service Representative can help your spouse apply for these benefits.
