Mom is 77 years old and wonders if she can still use Dad's GI loan to buy a house. Can we buy it together? Dad passed away in October 2011 and never used any of his GI benefits (too stubborn).

Hi - I don't believe your Mom can use the VA benefit. I think you should contact a local lender or even the VA to confirm the information. Good luck.

This is from the VA website.

The unmarried surviving spouse of a veteran who died on active duty or as the result of a service-connected disability is eligible for the VA home loan benefit.
