Approximately $7.5K per month is the amount now but that includes cola's.  You'll be getting the check very soon, based on our experience, I'm so sorry but remember you paid dearly for it...spend it wisely - God bless!

R1, husband has ALS, after thinking pay is approximately $7.4K, I as caregiver get no payment - thought I saw some where  that I could.  As I understand it, only those who enlisted after 9/11 qualify for that - seems unfair to me though...we older caregivers need it more than younger caregivers (LOL)!

yes those upper tiers are that much but def lower aid and attendance is not even close to that amount.   I am not going to even start about that post 9/11 caregiver bs,  my husband does it for free.  I will never understand the VA.

    • I filed for my mitral valve regurgitation heart disease secondary to a service-connected condition on 7-30-18. It was granted on 8-30-18. Since I filed for this heart valve issue and was awarded, can I still file for hypertension ? I have been seeing comments that you should file for hypertension first and file for heart disease as a secondary. Can I file for hypertension as a secondary to my heart disease ? I am alittle confused on this matter.

    • I am a 100% disabled veteran, At first I was super excited to find out I am getting retro pay for back benefits to 2006. But that was over 2 months ago. I been waiting and waiting and calling to ask them wheres my back pay. They first told me "one month" than I call again. The guy started reading a script of basically "we are malingering on paying you" type crap. I was wondering if there is any number I can call besides that 800-827-1000 number to inquire about my status. I don't know why its taken so long when there is specific information telling them from the judge that VA owes. 

      There was a remanded to see if I was eligible for IU (I get it now since 2014 im actually 90% with 10 of that been IU). I been on SS since 2004. Can Someone help me out? Thank you

    • You might have a 38 CFR 3.156 situation-

      meaning the VA might have considered your claim in 95/96 as "not well grounded" and failed to even get your STRs.Or they did get your STRs but never considered the specific entry you cited here.

      Lots of discussion under a search, of 38 CFR. 3.156 (a)(b) (c) ---here is a winner:
