Once approved, do we ever have to resubmit paperwork?

    We assisted my Father-in-Law in submitting the application and proper documentation. The application for my father-in-law was approved, he has been receiving benefits, and just passed one year of receiving benefits. Is there a requirement to send application information again on an annual basis, or once approved, that is all we have we have to do? Per information contained in the decision letter we understand that we must notify the VA if income changes, net worth increases, and/or medical expenses are reduced. Just trying to make sure we don't have to resubmit on an annual or other basis to continue to receive benefits. Thank you.

    The VA no longer requires the annual EVR report as it once did.

    You do need to update the VA in the event there is any change in income, expenses, new residence/address etc. You can use VA form 21-4138 Statement in Support of Claim to update and inform the VA.
