    I am in shock ! I mailed the completed application for my mother who is a surviving spouse on August 30. (My father previously had A&A until he passed away in 2014). The return receipt card was dated September 1. A deposit was made in my mother's checking account on October 4 for about $2300. We have not received any communications from the VA since September 11 when they said they are processing the claim. The intent to file date was 7/18/2017 - so I can not figure out what the payment is for and what time period it covers. At this point we will take whatever we can get since my sister & I have been helping to cover the home health costs. I assume monthly payments will follow.. This site and forum was extremely helpful to me since I got all of my questions answered here and I followed all of the advise on the site. I would say it had to be record time - since we were hoping to get an answer by the end of the year. Thanks to all.. Steve
