  1. So I am divorced and currently my ex-wife has primary custody and claims our children on taxes. I am awaiting my change from 90-100%, that will allow me to add my children on for CHAMPVA. My question is Can I claim my kids as dependents on my VA stuff, if I am not claiming them on my tax returns? Or do me and my ex need to change it so that I claim them as dependents on our taxes in order to claim them as VA dependents.
  2. I’m 100% P&T and my son’s mom recently passed away. I now have to get him covered with health insurance and do not know how CHAMPVA works. Is it like regular health insurance? I don’t understand the cost sharing thing. Is there a co-pay? Thanks
  3. Not entirely sure where to post this but here goes, So I am not well versed in the dependent side of the VA, but I am very good at keeping track of my paperwork of what I have received and also sent to the VA. I currently received a full award from the BVA and am just waiting for my RO to make their judgements on everything. When I first left the service I received my initial award two months later (early Va program). My RO at the time was still Winston-Salem, I received a letter August of 2011 asking for my updated dependency status. At this time I was going through a divorce and in Septembe
  4. Good afternoon All and Thank you all for your service!I do not have any awards as of yet but for those who do how common is it for the VA to initiate/open a dependency claim while your compensation claim is still active? I submitted a FDC on 1/17/2017 and it included the 21-686c for Status of Dependents. Is this a good sign for potential service connection award for those familiar or working at VA?I was in the USAF Reserves and have been out since May 2012.There was a suspense date for the dependency claim of 5/2/17, asking for a "rating" (assuming associated with my compensation claim), howev
  5. I am currently rated at 10% for tinnitus. I filed for SC for an ankle injury, bad knees and hearing loss in April, 2010. I was SC for hearing loss and pain in knees in 2012 at 0%. I filed my NOD within two weeks of the decision and have been waiting on appeal since. I just had had my C&P for ankles, knees, and hearing on April 14th. I was told by the C&P doc to expect a letter from them by June 14th (60 days). I am not holding my breath. I have a torn meniscus, effusion in the knee, and pain. I have been issued a hinged knee brace for each knee as well as hearing aids. So I feel strong

  10. This tuition waiver can be used in conjunction with Chapter 35 benefits. We just completed this process for our daughter. Virginia Military Survivors and Dependents Education Program The Virginia Military Survivors and Dependents Program (VMSDEP) provides education benefits to spouses and children of military service members killed, missing in action, taken prisoner, or who became at least 90 percent disabled as a result of military service in an armed conflict. Military service includes service in the United States Armed Forces, United States Armed Forces Reserves, the Virginia Nationa
  11. I received my initial response back 14 months ago and got awarded 70%. I immediately noticed the paperwork had me listed as unmarried with one dependent and I submitted for married with 3 dependents with all the proper marriage certs, birth certs, prior marriage info and forms required. It's now been 14 months and my dependency claim is sitting at claim received with absolutely nothing done. Multiple phone calls and emails all land me with the same prescripted response of your claim is currently in the works and dependency claims are currently taking xx number of months. The number changed
  12. On 7/10/12 I filed to update my dependency. My daughter was born on 7/5/12 and my wife and I got married on 7/9/12, at which time I became her son's step-parent. Along with the VA paperwork I sent certified copies of both birth certificates and our marriage license, all certified mail. To date my claim is still pending; the "help" desk acknowledges they have all three documents. I have sent letter, after letter (again all certified mail) with no response. How much longer should I wait before raising a stink? Most of what I have read says not to bother involving my congressmen, but with my init
  13. I have been designated a service connected disability rating of 40%, and need help completing VA Form 21-686c - specifically Question 13 'How much do you contribute monthly to your spouse's support?' Do I enter '100%' as she is disabled with CA lung, airway disease, essential tremor & Parkinsons, and bipolar disorder - so she takes up to 15 meds. Or do I need to enter the average monthly energy bill, grocery bill, her medications etc to get to a $ figure? Many thanks - I appreciate all the help I can get. . adwyer
  14. Hi, all I won a claim for VA pension back in Nov 2011. Around Oct 2012 I filed to add my dependents (3 children) on the claim. I filed for the dependents inside of the one year make so they should also back pay me from Nov 2011 correct? Well the problem is that I checked E-bennies today and now the claim is no where to be found. The completion date for the claim was April 5 2013. I have checked E-bennies before and the claim was always at the claim received stage it never moved once. Any one been through this before? ===== Update : I called e-bennies and the rep s
  15. I started my claim 14-Sep-1010 I was completed and rated 17-Jan-2012. I have been rated at 100% and recieving compensation. That is good I am happy about it. When I got my rating my dependents had not been included so I filled the paperwork out and sent it in. During the last 7-8 months I have waited and not heard anything from VA until last month. I talked to a lady on the phone, and she said that the claim I filed 14-Sep-2010 was still pending and that I just needed to be patient. I told her that was not correct and explained to here that I already had been rated and that I had recieve
