Dic Time Limitations



Hello, e4766 here. I've come across a lady whose husband died of Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. Is there a time cap on this? Isn't this one of the presumptives in cancer? He was listed 40% PTSD when he died and of course his benefits died with him. Any suggestiions as how to proceed? She has his C-file and personal records. I'd like to help her as much as I can. Thanks for your imputs. Carolyn

Chronic Myelogenic Leukemia is a not an Agent Orange presumptive.

Chronic Leukecite leukemia is, however.

What is the primary cause of death and what are any additional conditions listed as contributing to death .on the death certificate?

Was an autopsy done?

Did he have a claim pending when he died and if so what for?

We have considerable info here in our DIC forum.

She can substitute herself as the claimant if he had a claim pending and the DIC application should be filed within the first year after death for accrued purposes and for the date of death as the EED if a DIC claim succeeds.
