I called the VA to check on my 95 year old mothers A&A claim and they told me that it was in the notification stage. They told me that she would receive a letter with their decision in about 10 days and that they could tell me whether the claim had be accepted or not. Does this mean that her claim was rejected? I have read on the boards that money is deposited into the applicants bank account before they are notified? Please advise.
