On vet assist website it states: Q. My father, a veteran, died and my mother remarried. Her second husband died and she is now in need of financial help because of deteriorating health. Can she apply for Aid & Attendance based on my father’s service? A. Unless she was receiving death benefits after your father died, she is no longer eligible to file a claim based on his service. However my local regional office told me that a surviving spouse whose second husband died CAN qualify, he even DOUBLE checked this with a supervisor.....Can anyone actually confirm that vet assist is wrong?
