I have been waiting for a response (or even an acknowledgment of receipt) from the regional center in San Diego as to my application to have my wife recognized as my dependent. There is nothing special about the case: I was married 10 years ago, I got my VA decision (100% P&T) in January 2013, listing me as "with no dependents." I filled out the paper form and sent it (receipt requested) and have heard nothing. It has never shown up on eBenifits as an open claim or anything.
I made a copy of the form I mailed and submitted it on line via eBenifits, two months ago and noting was acknowledged or shown online.
Last night I found a dependent application online on eBenifits and filled it out and submitted it.
I have read on this forum that the application opens a new case that gets put in line with all the other open cases. Is that true?
Any idea if this online system has resulted in anyone getting their dependent recognized? If so, how long was the wait?
As it was when I was waiting two years for the original claim, I fear I will die before my wife gets recognized by the system and she will be denied her benefits after I am gone.
thanks in advance for any info related to this situation.
