Hello. I'm helping my mom (surviving spouse of Vet) apply for death pension and A&A benefits. They received our claim and are requesting additional information. I tried registering on the ebenefits website but when I entered her info, it said it wasn't in DEERS. I didn't know if I should be entering my deceased dad's info, however from what I've read on here, since he was discharged in in 1954, he's probably not in there anyways and some people on the forum said not to use it. I'm wondering if I should fax the paperwork to them (I get a confirmation of the transmission printed) or is it better to just mail it in? Thank you very much.
