Family members and dependents of Service members who have died or were seriously injured in the line of duty may be eligible for many types of VA benefits. These benefits may be used to advance in a career, get an education, or provide supplementary income. Surviving spouses may benefit from VA-guaranteed home loans, too.

See the list of benefits and specific qualification here
