*entered service as an officer after October 16, 1981.
These Veterans must have completed either:
*24 continuous months of active duty, or
*the full period for which called or ordered to active duty, but not less than 90 days (any part during wartime) or 181 continuous days (peacetime).
Note: Cases involving other than honorable discharge usually require further development by VA. This is necessary to determine if the service was under other than dishonorable conditions.
Eligibility for Reserves and/or Guard
Members of the Reserves and National Guard who are not otherwise eligible for loan guaranty benefits are eligible upon completion of 6 years service in the Reserves or Guard (unless released earlier due to a service-connected disability). The applicant must have received an honorable (a general or under honorable conditions is not qualifying) discharge from such service unless he or she is either:
*is an inactive status awaiting final discharge, or
*still serving in the Reserves or Guard.
Eligibility of Spouses and Veterans
Some spouses of Veterans may have home loan eligibility. They are:
*the unmarried surviving spouse of a Veteran who died as a result of service or service-connected causes.
*the surviving spouse of a Veteran who dies on active duty or from service-connected causes, who remarries on or after age 57 and on or after December 16, 2003, and
*the spouse of an active duty member who is listed as a MIA or a POW for at least 90 days. Eligibility under this MIA/POW provision is limited to one-time use only.
Congress has periodically granted Veteran status to members of other groups. There are various exceptions made to the length of time requirements.
