    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.

    Suse - The Philadelphia office. I followed the instructions both on this forum plus instructions from the VA. My mom lives in Tallahassee, Fl. Instructions say to mail to the Philadelphia office, which I did. Not getting any reply of any kind after a month, I contacted my moms representive in Tallahassee, Congressman Southerland. They referred me to the congressmans Military/VA Liaison in Panama City, FL. He was most helpful and made the difference.
    You can e-mail at brucetmarino@gmail.com if I can be of any further help.
