    Hello,

    My father passed away on the 15th of August, and we just received a letter saying they would be taking all of the benefit from the 1st of the month, which leaves no money for nursing home, caregivers, and funeral. We have already paid significantly toward funeral expenses and can do no more. Is there any appeal of their refusal to prorate the benefit?

    Thanks so Much,
    Jan

    Jan,

    Our condolences to you and your family.

    You can file against the month they want back with VA form 21-601. You will need to have proof of all expenses paid for by another family member. You can get the form from our site. It is not here on the forums.
