    I'm sorry to report that my Dad passed away last Tuesday night.

    I am extremely grateful for the work of Debbie and others on this site. With their help I was able to get A&A for my Dad at least for a few months. It helped tremendously by reimbursing him for his caregiver expenses. Even a little bit helps.

    My question is this, and I asked it in another post so pardon the duplication.

    With notification of a date of death of August 23, does A&A end, or is the Sept. 1 payment forthcoming?

    So sorry to hear this, and my heart goes out to you and your family.

    I am so thankful that my efforts helped to make a small difference for your dad.

    You need to notify the VA of his passing, and don't spend the check if Sept comes in. It may take a couple of months for the VA to stop the checks, so just hang on to them as you will need to send them back.

    Again with a heavy heart from one daughter to another. I'm sorry.

    I am sorry for your loss and my prayers are with you. We both applied for A&A for our father about the same time. I hope you continue stay in touch with this forum. You have been very helpful with your advice and encouragement for myself and others.

    thanks, Romalynn and Maralina. I do find myself wanting to check in to see how folks are doing, so I suspect I'll be around longer. Wish I had more expertise to offer but my experience will have to do!
