So, after seeing my dads claim listed as closed on Ebenefits I poked around a little and was able to see his benefit letter online that lists that he will receive aid and attendance $1788 effective April 1st and I called a few days later the VA rep confirmed the April payment. This is a blessing and we are so thankful. But I'm nervous, sad, angry, hopeful so many emotions right now. We have not received the award letter yet when I call the 1-800 number and go thru the prompts and put in his file number the automated system says we are not able to access your file. I want to know when/if my dad will receive the retro amount for Feb and March. He desperately needs that money his house is almost in foreclosure and as a family we have all done all that we can. It's so frustrating to have no control over the process and not know anything at least in writing. I realize that compared to the year(s) so many veterans have had to wait my dads claim appears to have made great progress so I'm trying so hard to just be thankful but the stress of his need for assistance for months and the financial struggles combined with not knowing has me about to lose it. Just thanking you all for reading/listening and I just ask for prayers.
