Since my father was a WWII vet, my mother received monthly Aid and Attendance payments. I was appointed her fiduciary, but she died a couple months after that and before the accrued amount was paid. I submitted the 21-601 form along with funeral expenses. After 18 months, there is nothing but an occasional form letter saying there are a great number of claims and action on mine may be delayed. In the FAQs it states 6-12 months is the normal amount of time to receive this. Is there something else I should do? Is it taking this long for others?
