@SickofVA - I am sorry to hear about your father's situation, but you really should have mailed a Statement in Support of Claim, even if there's the slightest possibility of a potential disagreement. The letter issued by the VA even states such. If I were in your shoes, I would consider speaking to an accredited representative (Veterans Service Organization/VSO) in your area to determine if your dad is eligible for the full allotted amount, assuming you're a fiduciary with consent to speak on his behalf. It sounds to me as though he should be with $4k/month in medical expenses. Your State Senator can only do so much. This is the federal Government we're talking about. This needs to be dealt with by somebody highly knowledgeable in the field of processing claims with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Please don't take this personally (and do pardon my French), but pissing off the VA caseworker handling your father's claim will get you nowhere. There are hundreds of thousands of Veterans with disabilities that have been waiting years for a decision. Your father is just one of many. Though, I do wish you the best of luck. --- @toxdoc49 - The VA is required by law to give you 60 days from the date of the actual letter in order to provide any necessary supporting documentation. If it just so happens that you need more time, then you could simply call the toll-free number provided and explain your situation. They will probably grant you an extension depending on the circumstances. FYI: The VA works in conjunction with SS. Whatever is earned (or unearned, whatever the case may be) is usually known, even if the VA does tend to miscalculate figures from time to time regarding the Aid and Attendance program. Always a good idea to report changes regarding income and assets.
