Hello, My dad is ill, and I am getting a crash course in the VA. So far I am unimpressed. I am in a bit of a bad situation as far as having to get the ball rolling on a lot of things with the VA at once. We have several issues. 1) My first question is in filing the Authorization to Disclose Personal Information to a Third Party form, where the heck do I send it. I spent almost 3 hours on the phone with the VA yesterday, and the representative assured me the address was on the form she was sending, and when I got the form, it simply says to go to the VA website to select the address. Um... where? We live in Alabama, by the way. Does that mean I send it to the office in Montgomery? 2) My dad, through a clerical error the VA made, has two separate files. Both are his correct name, but one has the wrong social security number. Somewhere along the way, the wrong number was keyed in and he ended up with two files. The problem is, we have never been able to get the two files merged into one file. So unfortunately a lot of his medical information is attached to the "incorrect" file, but his current disability rating is attached to the "right" file. When combined, the evidence should be enough to put him at 100%, but he has apparently been working for years to combine them and been unsuccessful. 3) I am starting the process for filing a reconsideration of his disability status. Help. 4) We are also starting the aid and attendance paperwork. Where do I send the completed packet in that case?
