    My dad has been receiving the Aid & Attendance benefit for the last year or so. He passed away July 24th and received his July check on July 31st. Does his estate get to keep this payment? Will that be the last check he receives?

    The VA does not pay benefits for the month of death. Since the payments are made in arrears, I believe he is not entitled to that payment. You are supposed to notify the VA of his passing, if you do not, it may take them a month or two to get their notification from other sources that he has passed away (its much quicker than actually getting the benefit).

  3. Fit is correct. They will send a request for the money back in a couple months. We just had that instance.
