Hi, My mom and dad (both vets) applied for A&A on Sept. 9, 2014, and were awarded benefits on February 2, 2015. My mom needs the fiduciary. They have chosen my sister -- she applied to be their fiduciary a few months back and is still waiting to hear anything. So my dad got the Sept-Feb back payment, but my mom (needs fiduciary) is still waiting for that money. Also, I want to apply for the retroactive payment for the prior year(s), before September 9, 2014. Is it simply one prior year, or can it go back farther? Do I have until Sept 9, 2015 (date of their application) or do I have until Feb 22, 2016 (date A&A was awarded) to finish and send in the new application for the prior year(s) retroactive payment? Also, when I do apply for the prior year(s), will the VA put everything on hold until the fiduciary is approved to actually send us the retroactive monies? Thanks for your help.
