For Veterans, Spouses & Family Members

We understand just how important family is to a service member who served. That’s why we offer just as much support to military spouses and families as we do for veterans themselves. We also have plenty of resources for people who are still serving and want to get a head start on life after the military. Browse our resources below.

Military Spouse Advocacy Network

MSAN helps to bridge military families from every branch of the armed forces and their surrounding communities in locations around the world through a Virtual Education and Resource Center, New Military Spouse Support Program, and Leadership Development Program. To create stronger military families through education, empowerment, and support.

Veteran Affairs

As the spouse or dependent child of a Veteran or service member, you may qualify for certain benefits, like health care, life insurance, or money to help pay for school or training. You also may apply for added benefits, including help with burial costs and survivor compensation. If you’re caring for a Veteran, you may also be eligible for support to help you better care for the Veteran—and for yourself.

Vet Centers

Confidential community-based counseling centers that provide social and psychological services, including professional readjustment counseling to eligible Veterans, active duty service members, including National Guard and Reserve components, and their families. Individual, group, marriage, and family counseling is offered in addition to referral and connection to other VA or community benefits and services. Their counselors and outreach staff, many of whom are Veterans themselves, are experienced and prepared to discuss the tragedies of war, loss, grief, and transition after trauma.

Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs

The Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs assists Hoosier veterans by giving them every advantage possible. The department works with a network of county veteran service officers who are here to help you at no cost.

College Tuition for Children of Disabled Veterans
Free or discounted college tuition is available for children of disabled veterans who joined the military while living in Indiana or who have lived in the state for at least five years before using the benefit.

College Tuition for Children of Purple Heart Recipients
Children of veterans can also get free or discounted college tuition if their parent(s) entered active duty while living in Indiana and received the Purple Heart medal.

National Vet Help

National Vet Help assists veterans (nationwide) in the preparation, presentation, and prosecution of claims for VA disability and caregiver benefits. Their law firm is owned and operated by a VA accredited attorney who is a U.S. Navy Gulf War Veteran, duly admitted before the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, and a sustaining member of the National Organization for Veterans Advocates (NOVA). National Vet Help works closely with its network of private doctors and vocational experts to help veterans maximize their earned benefits.

Dependency & Indemnity Compensation (DIC)/Survivor Benefits
This monthly benefit of $1,357.56 is for a survivor of a veteran whose death was caused by their time in service or from one of their service-connected impairments.
