I originally filed a claim for A&A the end of October 2015 through the Philadelphia office to fast track the claim due to my mothers age and income (used a copy of the letter someone posted on this forum). I got letters from them over the next several months saying they were working on the claim. In March (see post of 3/22/16) I got the Asset page back stating I used N/A instead of zero for the area not applicable and to resubmit with the correction but that the application would not be fast tracked anymore. On April 26 (see post) I got a call from a VA rep saying she was assigned to adjucate the claim for expenses because the way I filled out the date it didn't look like they were recurring expenses. We went through them and she said she would resubmit but it may be a few months before I hear anything. Then, BAM, today 5/5 I look in my mothers bank account and there is the money, retroactive to my file date. As thorough as I thought I was in completing the application, I still made 2 errors but still got the award in 6 months.
