Q: We have an applicant whose husband was a veteran who died as a result of a service-connected disability. The applicant is receiving Dependency and Indemnity Compensation. Is this considered includable income in calculating eligibility for the SCSEP?

A: No. Federal law provides that certain pay and financial allowances earned while a veteran was on active duty, including dependency and indemnity compensation for service-connected deaths, cannot be included in income when determining eligibility for federally-funded employment and training programs, including SCSEP. See TEGL 10-09, Attachment A, Section 1(a).
