Yet Widows ill Receive More Pension Iowa widows and children of deceased veterans of all military conflicts in receipt of pension will received greater benefits under the new veterans law which becomes effective Oct. 1. Signed by President Johnson last month, the new law will make many more widows eligible for benefits by reducing the marriage time requirement from five years to one year. C. E. McCutcheon, Adjudication Officer, Des Moines, VA Center, said that a veteran's widow may also qualify for benefits if a child was born to the couple either before or after the marriage. Mr. McCutcheon said eligibility for death pensions on a basis of need was extended to widows of veterans who served during the Vietnam era — since August 5, 1964. Death pensions are for widows of veterans who survived their service period, but die later for reasons not related to their military service. Widows on the current pension rolls will receive cost-of-living increases, with a monthly increase paid to children of deceased veterans. A special monthly pension of $50 (in addition to benefits they are receiving) was created for widow pensioners of all wars if they are patients in a nursing home, or when the VA determines they are in need of regular aid and attendance. Widows of Spanish- American War veterans, currently receiving pensions of $65 a month, will receive $70 a month.
