Great news!!! I just received a letter from VA regarding my father n laws A&A being increased. (WWII VET):-* Also along with the letter, I received forms that stated: "Under liberalizing law, my father-n-law may be entitled to VA Pension from April 23, 2009 to April 23, 2010. VA form 21-0516 - Improved Pension Eligibility Verification Report and Medical expense report VA Form 21-8416. My initial claim was awarded for May 2010 and forward... What does this mean? I hope someone can help me and explain what this means. All of this happen as a result of me sending a letter to my senator and an inquiry was sent to VA from the senator regarding my father-n-laws's claim. PLEASE NOTE: I have not been interviewed by the fiduciary. I need help understanding the "Liberalizing Law."
