New rules for SAH grants, anyone know how to do this?

Recommended Posts

Hi, Sorry if this is the wrong area to post. Mods, please move if needed. Hubby got the grant for SAH a few years back. Now, it appears he also qualifies for the other grant of around 15k, for loss of use of hands. Plus the initial grant has increased. We had to go in debt to abide by the VA regs. Since then, have noticed a few things done literally backwards, like the doors opening the wrong way and making it harder to navigate.  Has anyone used both grants since this is a new thing, at least to me? If so, any help on how to proceed would be greatly appreciated. The one time we tried to use the grant increase it turned into an 18 month saga. He simply doesn't have that much time. The last time we had asked for a security fence which was denied, then approved after 18 months. By that time, we just had the money paid on what we owed. We did a partial security fence with our money, but since the neighbors have a german shepherd now that seems intent on climbing their chain link fence to get to us, hoping to use the money to extend what we had built. And to correct building  mistakes made the first time. 

My sincere apology for the rambling. He now has nighttime dementia and we are both sleep deprived.

All the best to everyone! Thank you Gastone for your down to earth and honest reply. I think I may have even misinterpreted the article I had read. My  heart just keeps saying...........give Jimmy something to look forward to. My mind knows what I considered is not doable. Please remember Jimmy in your prayers! Love all of you!!!!!!!!

Are you using the VA IL (Independent Living Program) administered by the VA Vocational Rehabilitation Dept? If so, what does your IL Counselor have to say?

Give some thought to contacting your City's Animal Control Dept about the neighbor's dog.

Seems like just about all VA Benefit Programs, take an inordinate amount of time. In the end, we have to remember, this is the Federal Govt that we're dealing with.

Good Luck

    • Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask
      Choosing a VA Disability Attorney Means Learning What Questions to Ask. Chris Attig - Veterans Law Blog 

      <br style="color:#000000; text-align:start">How to Hire an Attorney For Your VA Claim or Appeal Free Guidebook available on the Veterans Law Blog

      I got an email the other day from a Veteran.  It had 2 or 3 sentences about his claim, and then closed at the end: “Please call me. So-and-so told me you were the best and I want your help.”

      While I appreciate the compliments, I shudder a little at emails like this.  For 2 reasons.

      First, I get a lot of emails like this.  And while I diligently represent my clients – I often tell them we will pursue their claim until we have no more appeals or until we win – I am most assuredly not the best.

      There are a LOT of damn good VA Disability attorneys out there.  (Most, if not all, of the best are members of the National Organization of Veterans Advocates…read about one of them, here)

      Second, I don’t want Veterans to choose their attorney based on who their friend thought was the best.  I want Veterans to choose the VA Disability attorney who is BEST for their case.

      In some situations, that may be the Attig Law Firm.

      But it may also be be Hill and Ponton, or Chisholm-Kilpatrick, or Bergman Moore.  Or any one of the dozens of other attorneys who have made the representation of Veterans their professional life’s work.

      There are hundreds of attorneys that are out there representing Veterans, and I’m here to tell you that who is best for your friend’s case may not be the best for your case.

      How do you Find the Best VA Disability Attorney for your Claim?

      First, you have to answer the question: do you NEED an attorney?

      Some of you don’t...
