Dependent Pay

Rate this question



Prior to 10/1978 a vet had to have a minimum of 50 % SC to recieve X-tra pay for dependents. After 10/1978 a public law reduced this requirement to 30 % SC.

My 1st SC award had an ED of 6/1978 - SC'd at 40 %.

I've been fighting the VA over 20 years to get the dependent pay due me during the late 70's thru the mid 1980's.

I am the veteran and I am the biological mother of the child.

I have date stamped copies of the 686's I sent in, Birth Certificate, also marriage license, divorce papers etc...

Va has continuously denied me this $$ and always retalliated requesting more info.

My daughter was illegitimate and was 3 years old when I entered active duty.

Going by VA regs I feel they have totally discriminated against me and will continue this fight until they pay me her money.

Anyone out there have anymore advice ?

I feel that the main reason I continue to be denied is that on many of my Control and Award letters, VA has my sex listed as a MALE, and that is why they continue requesting additional information.


38 CFR 3.210

(B) Illegitimate child. As to the mother of an illegitimate child,

proof of birthis all that is required.

    Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.

    Again – Make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    exclamation-mark-orange-gold.jpg How To Post

    Post a clear title like

    Need help preparing PTSD claim or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of  ‘I have a question."

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?


    Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
