Does anyone know if there is a cap or ceiling on the amount of money a spouse has; i., e., CDs, IRAs, savings, checking a surviving spouse can have to be disqualified or receive a reduced monthly amount for VA Dependent and Indemnity Compensation?
(Added): On the General Instructions for Application for Dependency and Indemnity Compensation, Death Pension and Accrued Benefits by a Surviving Spouse or Child (Including Death Compensation If Applicable) VA Form 21-534. It sure has a lot of blocks and questions on assets and income. I'm know it is a dual purpose form for compensation and pension; but, does not say to SKIP any parts of income or assets for compensation (DIC) part. Still the primary reason I was asking the question.
(Added) This is on the VA Form 21-534 instruction sheet. "You can find out what the current income limitations and rates of benefits are by contacting your nearest VA regional office". It was an superfluous exercise in futility when I called my local VRO with this question.
