  1. Regarding my monthly Veteran's Compensation Benefits - My son was removed as a dependent when he turned 18 even though he was still in high school. I submitted for and finally received the back pay that finished him out through his HS graduation. After graduation in Jun 2013, he joined the National Guard, attended Basic, returned home on 1 Nov 2013 and since Jan 2014, has been enrolled full time as a college student. Since he is only in the NG, yet living at home when not in college and I am providing over 50% of his support, can I have him added back on as a dependent to have my rate adjusted accordingly? My two previous inquires to the VA resulted in a No and a Yes. Trying to see if anyone has run across this before and can point me to exact criteria in regulation that covers this. Thanks
  2. Just found out today that my dependants are not eligible for the Post 911 GI Bill (P911GIB) benefits. My retirement date was 31 Jul 09. The first possible day to register dependants for active duty members for P911GIB benefits was 1 Aug 2009 which was the day I was dropped from the rolls. Based on all the documentation I've read and the documentation I received from VA, I am fully eligible but my dependants are not. Does anyone know of any exceptions to this policy?
