    I adopted my orphaned granddaughter when she was 18 years old (an adult adoption) so that she could receive education benefits up to age 26 for her college classes. She receives slightly more than $1000 a month in benefits so long as she is enrolled full-time (she is in her second year of an Engineering degree) and in good standing academically (she is on the Dean's List).

    If your grandchildren are minors (below the age of 18) and you, the military veteran, have primary care of them as dependents, you should check with your local VA to see if they qualify for benefits based on your veteran status. I have a service-incurred disability classification, which is why she receives the education assistance.

    None. There is a fund for the spouses of WWII veterans- a monthly payment that helps with the funding of an assisted living home. But nothing for grandchildren.

    USAA insures service members, Veterans and their dependents. You can contact them at 1-800-531-USAA to find out their current policy.

    Other than that, you get the privilege of telling people your grandparent(s) served and that's pretty much all.

    zero unless the service member adopted them or is their legal permanent guardian and the Veteran is 100% disabled or retired.

    USAA has their OWN requirements for eligibility. I suggest you visit the website and do a little research.

    They are listed in the Bill of Rights....and when they reach the age of 18 and become tax paying citizens, they get to utilize them.
