So dad got a call from the VA this morning asking about his very small monthly pension check he receives in addition to his Social Security. He confirmed that it was as small as they thought it was. About an hour later he got a call back from the VA. I happened to be with him at the time so he handed the phone to me and the rep informed me that they had completed his claim and he had been approved for the full amount. He will be getting a letter in a few weeks and we will begin the fiducary process. I'm still in shock. Happy shock, but shock none the less.
