My father, an EX-POW died on Dec 2, 2009. He was 100% disabled and receieved monthly compensation from the VA. Here's the question, he left me an article with his VA papers which said "if the POW is alive on the date his check is deposited in his account then it doesn't have to be returned." The check was deposited into his bank account on Dec 1, 2009. He died Dec 2, 2009. When I called the VA they told me they would take it back. I read her the article but she wouldn't listen to me. Does any one have any help for me???
