What a surprise when I checked my mothers account and found the VA money had been deposited. I was told about 2 weeks ago that it would probably be several months before I heard due to some mistakes I made on the application. Seeing it that quick was a real surprise. I started the process the end of October and had a few blips that I had to correct but still got the award in 6 months from the Philadelphia office. I want to express my thanks to this forum for the information and moral support it gives in making this process manageable.
