DIC benefits upon death


After I draw 100% disability for 10 years, is my wife eligible for DIC reguardless of the circumstances of my death? Thank you,

Yes, the veteran who is rated as 100% Permanently & Totally (P&T) disabled for an uninterrupted period of ten or more years can get run over by a bus and the surviving spouse will be eligible foe DIC benefits. I advise avoiding buses.
