Rep. Holden Introduces Bill to Equalize DIC Benefits Eligibility for Spouses of Deceased POWs

"All POWs fought to protect our freedom and the security of this Nation. Congress must stand up and provide the necessary compensation for all surviving spouses of these brave men and women," Congressman Holden stated as he introduced legislation in the 110th Congress to provide Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) benefits for surviving spouses of former Prisoners of War (POWs) regardless of when the veteran died. H.R. 156, would permit surviving spouses of POW's who died before September 30, 1999 of a non-service connected condition to qualify for DIC on the same basis as the surviving spouses of POWs who died after that date. This legislation has been referred to the jurisdiction of the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs.
