We received award letter August 5th. (formal claim filed May 10) We would like to thank Debbie for this website. We could not have gotten the claim approved without it. Before we found it, we were totally confused. My mother almost payed a lawyer $5000 to help prepare it. Also, thank you Debbie, VSR, and Fit, for your advice in this forum. I was quite a pest! My advice is: Follow the instructions on this site. If you have any questions, ask the experts in this forum. (I think they know more than the paid advisors.) Of course I have a few questions! I will post them at at another time. Just wanted to let everyone know the good news and to thank you all!
