Veterans Administration Pension payment cards, 1907-1933, contains over 1.3 million records. Since the American Revolution, congress has been involved in offering pensions for disabled soldiers and in the 1800s the government expanded them to cover veterans' widows and dependents.
The collection is compiled of records detailing payments from the US Veteran's Administration (VA) to those receiving veterans' pensions. It includes both transcripts and images of the original pension records for payments made between 1907 and 1933. This means that some of the veterans listed actually died prior to 1907. Details can include how much money was paid out, when it was paid out and two whom, allowing you to discover your ancestor's next of kin as well as their date of death and details of their military service.
