tsgtchaos replied to Jayco's question in VA Disability Compensation Benefits Claims Research ForumI filed a dependency claim last year to update my child into my records. Waited and waited. Still under review 8 months later. Ran across this article this morning. http://www.blogs.va.gov/VAntage/13707/new-technology-automates-veterans-requests-to-update-family-member-status/ Logged into ebenefits clicked on add dep and my records were updated a few hours later. Be advised You must have at least a 30 percent combined VA disability rating to go this route. Hopefully they will get around to my backpay within the year.
