Debbie Was just informed today of the max. amount of A & A pension ( $ 1094 ) for my 93 year old mom after a total of 88 days from mailing the application . I'm sure that's considered " warp speed " by VA standards. I will be making a donation to the fourm today. That this forum was most helpful is an understatement; I simply could not have done it without your help. Keep up the great work ! With kindest regards and best wishes - Bruce Marino P.S. If I can be of help with letter writing, e-mails or phone calls, please let me know.
