What are DIC Benefits and Accrued Benefits?

D.I.C. benefits and Accrued Benefits are the benefits that the Department of Veterans Affairs can pay to the spouse of a deceased service member. Essentially the purpose is to compensate financially for the loss of the service member and those benefits come in two varieties:

  1. D.I.C. benefits are benefits that are payable essentially for the loss of the person and their income; while
  2. accrued benefits are payment of benefits that the service member was entitled to be paid during his lifetime but died before the VA could actually pay them.
