In addition to providing disability compensation to veterans, the VA also allows them to add certain family members aka VA dependent benefits. If you have a 30% VA disability rating or higher, you can add dependents (spouse, parents, or children under age 18 and/or between ages 18-23 if enrolled in school) to your payment plan. To do this, you need to submit an application that includes proof of relationship such as marriage certificates or birth certificates and evidence of dependency (such as tax returns). You may also need to provide proof of school enrollment for children ages 18-23.
