It's been over a year since they sent purple letter for incompetency which was NOT true so dad sent letters from dr and psych to prove it. No response even though it says 60 days. Again this year he requested back pension. Letter coming they say. Nothing. Now he is sick, although still sharp in mind. They are outwaiting him and looks like they won't have to pay him the back pay. Should we try for the fin. rep thing or is it too late. If he dies while this is still in process, what "final expenses" can we submit. I'm worried about spending money we don't have on headstone etc and then they refuse it. Suggestions?
