My VSO filed a DIC claim this month. My husband was 100% P/T disabled and the cause of death was on his death certificate from his disability.
I called VA today and they told me that there was a backlog of about 7 months. Anyone had any experience on how long it takes VA to decide the claim for DIC.
Does the check that VA deposited April the first have to be paid back to VA. They sent me a letter stating that any monies from VA that was deposited after my husband passed away would have to be sent back. The monies were deposited before he passed away. My husband passed away April 7th.
I am really confused after I talked with VA today because I received a paper check make out to me and they told be that was mine to keep along with the April 1st deposit.
Any information would be greatly appreciated since I know a lot of you have experienced the same things.
