You must be the dependent of an eligible disabled veteran with a service connected disability rating of 0% or higher. Some other qualifications are required under specific plans. You must include with your application proof of dependency (i.e. birth certificate, adoption records, marriage certificate), proof of service connected disability and proof of income. Proof of income is not required for dependents of 100% service-connected disabled veteran dependents under Plan A.
