Is there anyway his surviving spouse could qualify for DIC as a result of his death due to his IHD?
Your input is appreciated.

This may sound morbid, but full out the 534/530 now for her and put it in a safe place. That way, all she has to do us submit it. Jmho

Thank all of you for your input. You have given me a lot of food for thought.
yes a claim for DIC can be submitted. The cause of death on the veterans death certificate has to be a presumptive disability. Then all you would need to file is a copy of his DD FM 214, death certificate, marriage certificate, VA FM 21-534ez.

The disability has to either cause the death or be a contributing factor also.

Your comments in response to my post seem to support my position on not filing for IHD.
