THANK YOU, VETADMIN!!!!! I wanted to share the news that my mother's pension was awarded today! Went into her bank account and found that almost $10,0000 had been deposited!!! I want to thank everyone for their help and advice, but particularly "Vetadmin" who suggested that I contact my mother's senator's office. I did contact the senator's office on behalf of my mom, and they called just a week ago to let us know that they had contacted the Veteran's Administration regarding my mom's case...........so no coincidence that today she got her money!!!!! It took 10 months, but worth the wait! Any of you who have been waiting for more than 8 months, I would advise you to contact your senator's office as well. Thanks again and best wishes for those of you still waiting!
