Just wanted to celebrate with some of you that will appreciate how much this means! My dad was just awarded the maximum (1758) per month Aid and Attendance after only 3 months!! He is 92 and the letter states first payment will be made in June and the reimbursement will occur "over time" (whatever that means, I don't care). I can now pay his ALA bill! He is 92, so there is a special request they put in... word of advise..i did go directly to the veterans dept to do this. An insurance salesman tried to sell me something but I caught on at the last minute and was able to find out the truth, which is DONT buy insurance. Don't pay for help to get this special "war soldiers" benefit!
