Your military benefits do not extend to anyone except your dependents. If your parents become your dependents (maybe later on in life) they could become eligible for some dependent benefits. For the most part, no benefits would be extended to parents.

Your parents dont get anything in the way of benefits unless you die, or you suffer a life altering wound or injury. They'll be able to join USAA federal savings bank though! It's a good deal, you should look into it. Best bank I've ever been with. They only serve military/vets and their families.

Your parents will only get benefits if they are dependent on you. If they won't sign, wait until you're eighteen. It can't be that much longer, since you have to graduate high school before you can enlist anyway.

No they will not, other than having one less mouth to feed.

None that I'm aware of. . It should be enough incentive for your parents that you are getting benefits....health, dental, meals and living quarters, monthly pay. You know, you can make the service a career by mixing services also. I know someone who spent 4 yrs active Marine Corps, enlisted in Army next, and served... More

none whatsoever. you cannot add them as secondary dependents unless they are incapable of providing for themselves and you provide at least 51% of all their needs.. and it takes, on average about 2 years to get it approved/ and most of the time.. it is NOT approved... More
