VA Pension benefits are available to some Veterans who’s service was during a period of war and their survivors. Both programs have qualifications based on age, disability status, period of service, and net worth restrictions. Veterans Pension and Survivors Pension appeals generally occur when the benefit is stopped or denied because the VA does not have a clear understanding of the applicants circumstances and need for the benefit.
