It may be because if was both my mother and my deceased father had benefits available, so they do them faster? Not sure, but the person I worked for said 45 days, and it was. Just had to wait till the first of dec to get the deposit of $1700. Not a disability case.

Thanks, Daisy. I looked up the law firm you used and it says they only do VA disability cases - was your aid and attendance filing part of a disability case? I've never heard of it being approved in such a short time. I also used a specialized law firm and they're normal time frame is 6 months. I just wonder if there's another facet that makes your filing more urgent and thus responded to more quickly? Thanks.

So glad that you were able to obtain the benefits. I am going to hang in there a little while. If it is rejected then I guess I will have to hire the experts.

Her VA benefits were deposited dec 1st! Very quick and I think the $700 I paid to have the papers done by experts really worked. Hope you are as lucky. I was really nervous after I saw the length of time vets were waiting, as hired a company that specializes.

I filed for VA benefits for my Mother in May 2012. I did all the paperwork myself with help from the website for VA benefits. I also sent them a letter asking to expedite the form because my Mother will be 90 in May. So far I have received 3 letters from them stating it is being processed. Good luck - from my research it takes about 12 -18 months.

Daisy - What kind of agency did you use to file? I used a lawyer and we filed in June. Nothing yet but 2 confirmations that they're processing the claim.Thanks for the information!

filed on 9/25/12. They had told me 45 days, I think it was less than that! . They will interview both of us in a year to confirm I am not trying to rip off my own mother, basically. If she is not doing her own bills [ a question on the va forms] someone must be signed up as a fiduciary.

Hi Daisy - Congratulations! How long did it take for you to get it? And what does a fiduciary mean?
