It says " we granted disability pension with aid and attendance effective feb 2015." Entitlement to special monthly pension based on the need for A&A is established. I applied for my husband non service A&A pension without assistance from VSO because I cannot find one here in the General santos City PHiLippines. But the pension is only $245/month. He is paid paid as single not married. I submitted the original copy of our marriage cert. along with the form 21-686c. I am wondering why he is not paid as married and the amount of pension is too small for his needs. He is already 80 y.o and is there a chance for an increase pension? I keep on sending follow up email on their website but they never give specific answer its just a formatted letter. How can he receive free eyeglasses,walker, and medicines..we've gone to manila where there's a VA office but they cannot get information/records of my husband since they have limited functions and only for service connected. My husband has no assests and we're living on ssa pension $1,517. I dont work now and full time taking care of my sick husband. I am soliciting any advise for my current situation.
