She is receiving VA benefits and her husband is deceased who was in the military. She lives at home and I pay almost 100% of all living expenses excluding medical. Can I claim her without messing those up?

Amy reading or documentation would be helpful.

You need to talk to a tax professional about this. Please do not do this with opinions from the internet. You and your mom wouldn't be happy if it cost her the benefits.

Unless she lives under your roof she is not technically a dependent.
