If you gave them your bank info, the retro will probably hit before you get the official letter ( happened to me). You'll probably see check Sept 1st.. No guarantees though... As far the money goes prepare for the worst hope for the best on timelines, watch your bank and congrats.
Hi all. My name is Megan. My husband was medically retired from the Navy and rated 100% service connected with the VA. He passed at 36 years old few weeks back due to his illness he was service connected for. He was also on ssdi when he passed and our kids and I were receiving dependant benefits. I was also in the caregiver program with the VA as he was housebound due to seizures after his brain injury. My main question is will our ssdi survivor benefits affect the total amount that is payed by the DIC? I have many other questions but am still I'm the very early stages of dealing with his passing amd would greatly appreciate any tips or nudges in the right direction of making sure I understand all benefits available to myself and our 2 children. Thank you in advance.
