I have court ordered custody of my granddaughter. Why can’t I get VA benefits for her?

 


 

A1:  Per 38 CFR 3.57, disability compensation can be increased for a child, stepchild, or adopted child. Grandchildren with or without a court order, do not qualify.  (AP)  12/3/16

A2:  May cost a little but you can adopt your grandchild and then get benefits.  (PW)  12/8/16
