No, you do not have to update the VA every year if there are no changes but they can audit at any time. I recommend my clients retain expense and income records for five years.

Yes, you are required to notify the VA of changes in income or expenses that may effect the continuation or amount of benefits received.

In the event of the passing of a claimant or spouse the VA should be notified even though the VA will receive this information from Social Security automatically in the event of death.

If your father predeceases your mother she will have to file a new claim as surviving spouse.
