Surviving Spouse & Dependent Education Benefit

The Surviving Spouse and Dependent Education benefit is for spouses and dependents, including adopted and step-children, whose veteran spouse and/or veteran parent died while on active duty, or as a result of a service-connected condition. The veteran must have been a resident of Minnesota when they entered the military, or have been a resident of Minnesota for at least six months prior to passing away due to a service connected disability.

Applicants must be Minnesota residents and the spouse cannot be remarried. There is no age limitation for eligible survivors.
