VA Loan Limit Increased

The VA's Specially Adapted Housing Program has also raised primary grants from $50,000 to $60,000 toward constructing a new home or modifying an existing home to meet adaptive needs of veterans or active-duty servicemembers with certain service-connected disabilities. Veterans with certain service-connected disabilities resulting from severe burns can receive the adaptive housing grants. For more information, call the VA at 1- 877-827-3702 or at the VA Loan Guaranty website.

VA to Provide Payments to Eligible

Surviving Spouses

 

 

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) announced immediate actions to quickly identify and pay surviving spouses who are eligible to receive a one-time compensation or pension payment for the month of the veteran's death. Surviving spouses most likely to be effected by this processing problem are those who never applied to VA for survivors' benefits following the death of a veteran. 

Inquiries may also be submitted through the Internet at the Veterans Benefits Administration website.
