    My Mom just received a letter denying her Aid and Assistance benefits because my Stepfather didn't die while in military service or because of military service. I didn't realized this was a requirement. Is this right?

    No this is WRONG! Your stepfather only had to meet the criteria of an honorable discharge and service during an approved period of war. It sounds as though they processed the claim for DIC benefits and not Pension. Did you keep a copy of the application?
