VA widow's benefits?
Any experience applying for VA widow's benefits? My MIL's 2nd husband was a vet, was married to her at the time of his death, fought during a war, served for more than a year and was honorably discharged. I called VA. 1st guy says yes! She qualifies. Transfers to forms dept. 2nd guy says no - her husband did not apply during his lifetime so she's not eligible. 3rd person "not sure" go ahead and apply.
Has anyone had succes in applying and know whether or not her husband had to have applied during his lifetime? The form is quite long and complicated.
