Spouse Of Deceased Vet & Disability Benefits

Question

My father was declared 30% disabled when he returned from WWII due to "nervous condition". He received a whopping $41.40 check every month until he died in 1970. My mother told me after he died, the checks stopped. She never remarried and died in 2009. Is the surviving spouse not entitled to the benefits? I sent the paper work on this to the VA and a letter asking that question, and I get my letter back with a post-it note attached to it saying "I've tried and started a letter to you multiple times. Would you please call me to discuss?" and it's from the Regional Administrator of the Dept. of Veteran Affairs. I thought it was very unprofessional, and I am terrible about calling people on the telephone...so I am wondering if I might find out from you guys what you think it needs to discuss with me that he couldn't puti in a letter.

Your mother would not be eligible for survivor benefits unless your father died from his service connected condition. She might have been eligible for widow's pension if she was very poor. I don't know what he could not discuss in a letter to you. Your mother never inquired about a possible pension?

I would make the call.

Being that both of your parents are now deceased, what are the goals you have

in regards to the VBA ?

I guess there is no use since they denied us when we applied for service connected. If the widow does not get the benefits, that answers my question, and she was working so I'm sure she never applied for a widow's pension. Why couldn't he just have written and told me that? lol....Carlie, I love your tag line about never giving up. As you know, I'm over on another board talking about trying to obtain the Purple Heart for him for 40 years.
