Did he die from a service connected condition?

 If so then you should be getting DIC benefits,

I dont understand what the 940 amount is for,  Were you awarded a wartime  pension? or is this from SSA

I am a widow of 2 disabled  veterans myself  and regret your loss.

Can you scan and attach the DIC denial here, as to the reasons and Bases part and the evidence list?

(cover the C file number, name and address prior to scanning)

This is an overview of ways to attain DIC:
