    After filing my mother's application for A&A in late Sept. I received a letter from the VA regional office dated Oct. 9 that said they had received the application. Today I received a second letter dated Nov. 13 stating they are still processing my mother's application for "PENSION" - in bold and all caps. and apologizing for the delay. My question is: Is the A&A benefit referred to as "Pension"? or are they processing it for the wrong benefit?
    hoping all is still on track,
    thanks in advance,

    A&A is "pension", so you are ok.

    Compensation is for service-connected injuries, which is something totally different form this pension which is not dependent on injuries.
