    • 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.
    • Update. I was granted SMC (k) with retro to 2012. Extra $ helps, but would prefer to not have this problem.

    • Yeah, it appears to be down.  Hopefully they are updating it! :D
    • Ok let's try this again. I should have added the DBQ along with letter the first time. Guess I was just excited. let me know if it will work the way it is.. Dr. Had C file, SMR civilian and VA medical records to review. this is to much money just to throw down range and hope for the best. Thanks.. DBQ  


Preparation For Notification

26 posts in this topic

Well, Finally went to Notification Stage after 18 months, I've been waiting a long time for this, now I just hope they do me justice and give me what I rate, Nothing More! Does anyone have an idea how long it will take before I actually get something in the mail or a post on ebenifits?

A big thanks to everyone all on this site for all your help and expertise on all subjects....
