I filed a claim for A&A for my mother whom is the widow of a vet. It took a year for them to return it to me with one error I had made. Completed and sent back after 9 more months and still no response and all I get when I call is that it is in process. I contacted an attorney who had handled another residents application that processed in 4 months. The attorney went thru my copy of the app, she added an update since my mothers health had changed ect... that was in Oct 2012 still nothing, I don't even get the your claim is in process letters any longer. I have heard each state is different in time processing and if it is for the spouse of the vet it takes longer is that true ??? What step should I take next or just keep waitng??
