    My mom was approved on May 26th, and her letter said funds were freed-up as of June 1st. How long should it take until her first award deposit is made?

    The first award deposit should have been made on June 1st. Did you double check to see if the deposit was there? This is a separate account set up for your mother just for the A&A benefit, correct?

    The account is an existing account in her name only - it was the check and deposit information I sent with the application. I have not yet gone through the fiduciary process. And yes, I have been checking the account daily.

    I just spoke to the VA, and was told that even though the award letter says the funds are "freed-up" as of June 1st, the VA is always 1 month "behind". Mom is scheduled to have a deposit made on July 1st.

    I'm glad you got a hold of them and you were able to get a straight answer. That's great!
