Submitted a complete package of documents requesting A&A/Homebound benefits. Waited nearly 10 months and received a denial for "VA DEATH BENEFITS" (????) stating my mother's income exceeds the death pension limit.(????) In addition, claim denied for DIC. (????) Further along in the denial letter, the VA rep includes a list of all the documents/evidence they received and considered in supporting a denial which in my opinion clearly indicates the benefit applied for as well as my mention in the Statement in Support of Claim. Am I wrong to assume that the person handling the case failed to acknowledge the forms as belonging to a specific benefit OR does the A&A fall under "VA Death Benefit/DIC"? My denial letter made no mention or reference to Aid and Attendance/Housebound Benefit. So, we drafted an appeal. Three months later, the VA responds to inform me that they have received my written disagreement regarding denial of "SURVIVOR'S PENSION"!!!!!! (????) Where did THAT come from? Am I the only confused one?
