skunk, your son's claim for school is "his claim" and "not yours," which is why they may be ignoring you. He needs to apply. Sorry but that's the way it is.

are you talking about chap 35 benefits? i know that with my son, since he is over 18 he has to do everything himself....i "no longer exist" (so to speak) since he is of age and an adult to take care of all of his own matters.

hope it all gets taken care of...

no i am talking about adding him as dependent until he is

23 yrs old or terminnates school . sure he can apply for himself if

he elects to . what i am talking about they are not processing or

they are shredding my mail. they are saying that they have not

recieved any request for school attendence. i sent them a letter

in 2005 telling them that my daughter had terminated school and

thought it was taken care of . when i filed evr report pension noticed

daughter was not on there. cost me 2500$ overpayment.

I thought the max age on children as dependents is 19yo? I know SS reduced theirs some years back. As for the overpayment, you should have requested a waiver, if you notified the VA and the VA made the error. Also, you should've realized they hadn't reduced your payment and therefore you may be responsible for any overpayment. jmo

i figured someone would ask why i did not notice amt had not changed each month

and the reason was because my son turned 18 in high school and while he was still

going to school they cut him off so i applied for him to get back on . turns out i thought

they were paying for my son but they were paying for my daughter, i wrote numerous letters trying to explain all this to them so finally i gave up and paid overpayment over time. once something gets mixed forgrt it.

  • question-001.jpegLooking for Answers? Here are tips for finding the answers you seek.

     

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. To post, you must register. Registration is free. You can register for a free account here.

     

    You can read the forums without registering.

     

    Tips on posting on the forums.
     

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question.
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

     

    Leading to:

     

    Post straightforward questions and then post background information.

     

    Examples:
     
    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    • I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
       
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
        • I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

     

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

     

    Note:

     

    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed.
    • This process does not take long.
    • Your first posts on the board may be delayed before they appear as they are reviewed. The review requirement will usually be removed by the 6th post. However, we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.
    • This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before hitting the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims, and this helps us do that.
