Revolutionary War Pension Information

For more than a century before the beginning of the Revolutionary War, British colonies in North America provided pensions for disabled soldiers and sailors. During and after the Revolutionary War, three principal types of pensions were provided by the US Government for servicemen and their dependents.

  • Disability or Invalid Pensions - awarded to servicemen for physical disabilities incurred in the line of duty.
  • Service Pensions - awarded to veterans who served for specified periods of time.
  • Widows' Pensions - awarded to women whose husbands had been killed in the war or were veterans who had served for specified periods of time. The letter "W" is included with the file number for widow pension applications.
