NO!  First what you should do is to go google chapter 35 Benefits if you want a full explanation of the benefit. Chapter 35 dependent education pays a stipend directly to the spouse or dependent

You really sound like a glass half empty kind of guy....... I get it that  100% va compensation doesn't cover all the expenses someone many have... you just have to decide what is a priority and forge

I am 100% PT and also receive SSDI    My children do not receive any sort of medical other than Champva and they do receive some part of SS that is awarded to them until they are 18.  I believe he is

When you received your 100% rating  there should be a line In the letter that indicates you have dependent Education under chapter 35 if your rating is a permanent rating. All of your children under 26 would be eligible and so would your spouse, and it does not matter if your children are married and left the home.. You should also be able to get medical care under champva.  Education is not free but they will get paid quarterly if they qualify, but the must also get passing grades. My son went to college for 4 years..... and while the va does not pay the full cost, its still a nice piece of change.   You would have to pay for Champa as well/  You will also get all dental and medical care free at the VA.

NO!  First what you should do is to go google chapter 35 Benefits if you want a full explanation of the benefit.

Chapter 35 dependent education pays a stipend directly to the spouse or dependent child attending school the amount of the stipend depends in the level of study the  ie: 1/4  or 1/2 or full time student it has nothing to do with any other program. 

In my son's case when he attended college he did not have to work to help pay for college like most students do.. because he had chapter 35 benefits... his benefits paid the amount that his scholarship did not cover.

    • Finally heard back that I received my 100% Overall rating and a 100% PTSD rating Following my long appeal process!

      My question is this, given the fact that my appeal was on the advanced docket and is an “Expedited” appeal, what happens now and how long(ish) is the process from here on out with retro and so forth? I’ve read a million things but nothing with an expedited appeal status.

      Anyone deal with this situation before? My jump is from 50 to 100 over the course of 2 years if that helps some. I only am asking because as happy as I am, I would be much happier to pay some of these bills off!

    • I told reviewer that I had a bad C&P, and that all I wanted was a fair shake, and she even said, that was what she was all ready viewed for herself. The first C&P don't even  reflect my Treatment in the VA PTSD clinic. In my new C&P I was only asked about symptoms, seeing shit, rituals, nightmares, paying bills and about childhood, but didn't ask about details of it. Just about twenty question, and  nothing about stressor,

    • I don’t say thank you enough to all of you...
      You, yes you, are the reason HadIt.com has remained a resource-rich resource. Thousands come each month to read, ask questions, or to feel a sense of community.

      Last month June 2020, we over 50k visitors they viewed over 160k pages. Veterans and their advocates, spouses, children, and friends of veterans come looking for answers. Because we have posts dating back 15 years and articles on the home page, they usually can find an answer or at least get pointed in the right direction.

      You all made that possible. Thank you.
