    Parent passed before any decision was made. We applied back in October 2012. About every 3 months we would receive the standard letter stating that her claim was being processed. My mom passed in April. Is there any notification that I should do? Or rather what happens now?

    Thanks for this website. I went to your link to sign the petition to tell Vets about this benefit. If we had only known we would have applied much sooner.

    So sorry for you loss, and sorry that the pension did not come through for her in time.

    Please go to the FAQ section on the site and look under the "legal" tab. There is a question regarding losing a loved one prior to completion of the application.

    If you or another family member are out of pocket expenses you paid on her behalf, you can file for reimbursement.

    Again, I know this has to be a difficult time for you and your family, and you have my sympathies.
