Buck The VA sent out a Press Release this AM on suicide of veterans and I dont know if it is the same fact sheet or an upgraded one.

http://www.va.gov/opa/pressrel/pressrelease.cfm?id=2801

This is an Important issue and when I googled for more info of course, all the past VA rhetoric popped up.

We had here once or twice questions from vets ,that if they killed themselves, would the spouse be eligible for DIC.

The answer MOST of the time is No. The  suicide regulations are here under a search.

I lost a vet friend to suicide some years ago and there was no way at all the wife could get DIC.

On the other hand my neighbor gets DIC because her veteran husband was found to be insane at time of his fatal actions.

It is a good idea to bring this important topic up from time to time.

Yes Ms Berta  I think its the same link  maybe different author or something?

This was just sent to me this Morning   hot off the VA Press (so to-speak)

I don't think it has any DIC Claim information in it  ...but has new information for Veterans with PTSD SI Thoughts & New VA Programs they may or mayNOT know about.

I Wanted to get this info out here on hadit for our PTSD Vets.
