  1. Hi, could anyone please tell me how long this process takes??? I have to admit I am just learning about all this, we have filed for my husband who needs help with all daily living activities. i can no longer work as I am his caretaker. We will have to file bankruptcy if this all takes to long. Thank you for any help you can give me!

    The timeline varies widely depending on each person's application. If your husband is over the age of 90 years old then you could request an expedition of his application due to his advanced age. Or if you are facing such financial hardship (which is sounds like you are) that waiting for the benefit approval would seriously hinder being able to afford his care then you can also request expedition due to "financial hardship". Use Statement in Support of Claim form 21-4138 to make these expedition requests and make sure to include any evidence that you think would be helpful.
  3. Thank you so much Kaylin, the wait time for veterans is terrible!!
