Va Says Live Vet Is Dead And Owes Them Cash


Recommended Posts

GRADUATE ! Nov 2nd 2007 American Military University !

When thousands of Americans faced annihilation in the 1800s Chief

Osceola's response to his people, the Seminoles, was

simply "They(the US Army)have guns, but so do we."

Sameo to us -They (VA) have 38 CFR ,38 USC, and M21-1- but so do we.

The VA needs little or no evidence to prove the death of a veteran when it is financially beneficial to the VA. However when a veteran's widow applies for DIC, they would not even think about granting benefits without an actual death certificate.

Again, I think the VA should be required to pay penalties and interest along with the funds withheld when they cause a financial hardship to a veteran or his/her family due to the VA's negligence and incompetence.

I think this is an unusual circumstance of someone using your identity then subsequently dying. I think when something like this occurs there should be a 72 hour time frame for you to collect your lost funds. Or the VA should let you just go to a Regional Office and say hey I'm alive , cut me check right now.
