Just like veterans, there is not a one size fits all answer. Please schedule an appointment with the Veteran Service Office to find out what you are eligible for or come in during walk in hours with your questions.
When a veteran has passed please contact the Veteran Service Office to go over burial benefits, to stop the veterans monetary benefits (if the veteran is receiving them), and to go over the benefits the surviving spouse/dependents may be eligible for.
The CalVet College Fee Waiver for Veteran Dependents benefit waives mandatory system-wide tuition and fees at any State of California Community College, California State University, or University of California campus. This program does not cover the expense of books, parking or room and board. There are four plans under which dependents of Veterans may be eligible. Gather required documents, complete application and schedule an appointment or come in during walk in hours at the Veteran Service Office.
Surviving spouses may qualify for benefits. Please come in to the Veteran Service Office during walk in hours or contact the office to make an appointment.
