Dependent issue



I am disabled and already have a service connection they keep messing with me on that but thats another post
I live in another country
I have been married 6 years married in 2010, Filled 2011
VA had a copy of my marriage documents BEFORE granting disability
They keep turning down and never gave my dependent pay

My wife has NEVER been to America
we likely wont go for some time if ever
They keep pushing that she has to have a SSN
Yet SSAdmin told me to fly a kite
since she is not a citizen
does not live there
will not live there or have a business there yada yada on and on
SHE CANNOT and WILLNOT be issued one by SSAdmin as per direct conversation to me by them on the phone

I had the local American Consulate try to help
some smart a** at VA has an answer for everthing to deny

basically told me NO
if no SSN no other option and you dont get your benefit
First off the dependent benifit is MINE not her's

although the consulate says vets living in the Phillippines married there have same issue and have no problem getting their dependent benifits from VA and SSAdmin
the people at VA basically told me they DONT CARE what the consulate said

Since then i now also have a new son (10months old)
I feel i am going to run into more BS on this as well

Is there some way to get this resolved ?
Get my credit for her ? IF so it should be retro since we were married before my award and our marriage cert. copy was in the system

Why do some VA workers have to be so ____________________
while others are just good people doing a good job

frustrated on THIS and Other things i have to fight with them on

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    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. Knowledgable 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 huge, 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 clear questions and then give background info on them.


    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in 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.


    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.

  • Can a 100 percent Disabled Veteran Work and Earn an Income?

    You’ve just been rated 100% disabled by the Veterans Affairs. After the excitement of finally having the rating you deserve wears off, you start asking questions. One of the first questions that you might ask is this: It’s a legitimate question – rare is the Veteran that finds themselves sitting on the couch eating bon-bons … Continue reading
