    We applied eight months ago and are still waiting. My father is 90 and it is getting harder for everyone involved. Is there anyway to get things rolling? Ed

    You need to contact your Dad's state Senator and ask them to make an inquiry on the status of his applicaiton ASAP. Given his advanced age, he should have been given priority processing. Did you make that request when you submitted the application?

    Either way, you need to make that contact, which should help in getting through the process.

    Keep us posted.

    It took 13 months to get a decision on my father's claim. I agree that the best course of action is to contact your Congressman or Senator. That is what finally got the VA moving on Dad's case. We are still waiting on the fiduciary appointment. Baby steps.
